Have you heard the news, movie fans? Seven years after meeting on the set of “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are engaged! No, for real this time. Cynthia Pett-Dante, Pitt’s manager, confirmed the news on Friday (April 13), saying, “It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy.”
Robert Procop, the designer of Jolie’s engagement ring, released a statement to People: “Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realized over a yearlong collaboration with Robert. He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect, so Robert was able to locate a diamond of the finest quality and cut it to an exact custom size and shape to suit Angelina’s hand.”
We can hear all the ladies in our office swooning, but that’s not the only exciting news for fans of the Hollywood power couple. Pitt and Jolie may star together alongside Michael Fassbender in the forthcoming movie “The Counselor.”
Deadline Hollywood reports that director Ridley Scott wanted Pitt and Javier Bardem for the movie. As he’s close to getting them both, rumors are circulating that Jolie might also be in talks to play the female lead. She and Scott have been collaborating on a Gertrude Bell biopic, which may have led to the rumors. With Brangelina’s engagement now official, it would make sense that the actors would want to remain close to one another.
But Pitt and Jolie wouldn’t be the only ones to reunite via “The Counselor.” This would be the first time Scott and Pitt work together since Scott directed “Thelma & Louise,” a film that undoubtedly launched Pitt’s career.
“The Counselor” was written by Cormac McCarthy. It follows a well-respected lawyer (Fassbender) who gets involved in the drug business and quickly finds himself in a situation that’s more than he can handle. If cast in the film, Pitt would play a shady middleman and Bardem would be Fassbender’s associate. The movie is said to start filming in June and Fox is currently negotiating to distribute.
