Angelina Jolie Picture

Angelina Jolie has signed on to star in the upcoming biopic "Maria" which will be directed by Pablo Larrain ("Spencer", "Jackie") from a script by Steven Knight ("Peaky Blinders", "Spencer").

The film based on true accounts will tell the tumultuous, beautiful and tragic story of the world's greatest opera singer, relived and re-imagined during her final days in 1970s Paris.

The filmmaker's brother and creative partner Juan de Dios Larraín will produce for Fabula Pictures, alongside Lorenzo Mieli for The Apartment Pictures, a Fremantle Company, and Jonas Dornbach for Komlizen Film.

Larraín said the following:
"Having the chance to combine my two most deep and personal passions, cinema and opera, has been a long-awaited dream. To do this with Angelina, a supremely brave and curious artist, is a fascinating opportunity. A true gift.".

Jolie added:
"I take very seriously the responsibility to Maria’s life and legacy. I will give all I can to meet the challenge. Pablo Larraín is a director I have long admired. To be allowed the chance to tell more of Maria’s story with him, and with a script by Steven Knight, is a dream.".

Angelina Jolie is currently in post-production on her new directorial project "Without Blood", the first under her new three-year deal with Fremantle.
