Jolie News


Finally, an Angelina Jolie movie her kids can watch. Jolie has signed on to star in a big-screen adaptation of the epic English poem "Beowulf" to be directed by Robert Zemeckis.

The film, like Zemeckis' previous movie, "The Polar Express," will use performance-capture technology to transform live acting into computer animation, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The story of the Scandinavian hero of the sixth century who slays a beast will star Ray Winstone as Beowulf, who saves the Danes from Grendel the monster, portrayed by the always creepy Crispin Glover.

Jolie, who played Colin Farrell's youngish mother in "Alexander," will again portray a maternal character in the film, taking on the role of Grendel's mom. The cast also includes Anthony Hopkins, Robin Wright Penn and John Malkovich. The movie is scheduled for a 2007 release.

In the meantime, Jolie started work this week on "The Good Shepherd," a World War II-era drama following the dramatic early years of the CIA. The film, which co-stars Matt Damon, is being directed by Robert De Niro in his only official stint behind the camera since the 1993 gangster drama "A Bronx Tale."

--And in other Angelina news, it seems she and Brad are planning to get married.

He won't be divorced until June of 2007 and she's planning to marry him?

He plans to marry Morticia Adams? Excuse me while I vomit.

I guess how Beowulf is treated will depend on how kid-friendly the movie will be. Having read the actual epic poem it isn't sugar-n-spice!!!
