Brad has hired Jolie to play Mariane Pearl in the film adaptation of the author's memoir. His production company, Plan B will produce the film. Yes this is the same company he started with Jennifer and yes she was originally considered for the potentially Oscar winning role. I'm not even going to go there. People reports:
"The film will focus on the deep collaboration between people around the world in search of Daniel in 2002," Pitt tells PEOPLE. "We hope the film can increase understanding between people of all faiths and portray the story and the people involved as honestly as possible without anger or judgment."
The film will be adapted from Pearl's memoir, A Mighty Heart: The Brave Life and Death of My Husband Danny Pearl, which chronicles her experience after her husband was abducted by Islamic extremists in Pakistan in early 2002. A month later, his captors released a video depicting his murder.
