FINALLY I can say something! This bit of information has hard to keep under wraps, but after another confirmation, I can now tell you that we could have the ultimate megastar coming to film here in Wilmywood!
After two confirmed reports, my sources tell me that member(s) of the Universal Pictures production team were here last week to scout Wilmington for the movie, Unbroken. And that megastar is the one and only, Angelina Jolie. She is slated to direct this story of Olympian-turned-WWII POW Louis Zamperini. This will be her second project she is directing. Although she made her directorial debut with In The Land Of Blood And Honey, this will be a first for her on a major studio film. As far as her acting, there is no word if we will see her on screen.
The most interesting part, besides having such an amazing woman possibly coming here, is that Universal has been developing this story for the silver screen for more than 55 years. Mick Garris is exec producer and Matthew Baer & Erwin Stoff are producing.
Hopefully her team found everything they needed here in Wilmington. On a side note, If Angelina does come, chances are we could have a visit from the fabulous Brad Pitt as well! I will keep you posted as more information comes in!
