Angelina and Maddox Jolie-Pitt are Making a Movie Together

He may only be 14, but that's no stumbling block for Maddox when it comes to working on a movie about his native Cambodia.

According to Vanity Fair: "Jolie, who last directed the awards contender Unbroken, will direct an adaptation of another inspiring memoir - this time, First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers, the 2000 book from Cambodian author and human rights activist Loung Ung about surviving the deadly Khmer Rouge regime."

Jolie released a statement yesterday, saying: "I was deeply affected by Loung’s book. It deepened forever my understanding of how children experience war and are affected by the emotional memory of it. And it helped me draw closer still to the people of Cambodia, my son’s homeland... It is a dream come true to be able to adapt this book for the screen, and I'm honored to work alongside Loung and filmmaker Rithy Panh."


While the statement also clarified that Maddox would be involved, his exact role was not revealed. What Jolie did address, however, is why she's choosing to partner with Netflix: "Films like this are hard to watch but important to see. They are also hard to get made. Netflix is making this possible, and I am looking forward to working with them and excited that the film will reach so many people."

Will it be on your 'continue watching...' list?
