Angelina Jolie Teams Up With The Coen Brothers For Her Next Film

Posted on Wed Feb 27, 2013 06:00 AM PDT

jolie-coen-bros.jpgWe already knew Angelina Jolie was directing a film about famous World War II P.O.W. Lou Zamperini, but now the project will pack some serious punch thanks to the literary talents of Ethan and Joel Coen.

The Coen brothers have been tapped to rewrite the script for Unbroken, which is an adaptation of Laura Hillenbrand’s 2010 book. Universal picked up the rights to the novel in January 2011, and sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Jolie was "extremely choosy" when it came to locking down screenwriters.

Zamperini was an Olympic runner who later joined the Air Force, and after his plane crashed in the Pacific in 1942, he survived without food and water for 47 days and was then held as a prisoner of war for two years by the Japanese.

The Coens have been nominated five times for Academy Awards in the writing category alone, winning for No Country for Old Men and Fargo. Can't wait to hear more about this collaboration!



Quite a story!
