Angelina Jolie might work with Robert Pattinson, Twihard meltdown coming?


Oh, this is going to get good. According to Deadline Hollywood (story via LaineyGossip), one of the next films Angelina Jolie is going to do is a film called Unforgiven. Which… I hope they change the name, because there’s already a film called that, starring (and directed by) Angelina’s mentor Clint Eastwood. Anyway, the film is about “a woman’s attempt to rejoin society after she serves a 15-year prison stretch for the murder of two policemen. The tragedy happened after the policemen came to evict her family from their farmhouse. Her hope is to live quietly and reunite with her troubled younger sister, but the paroled woman is targeted for a revenge campaign by two sons of one of her victims.” Guess who is going to play one of the sons, maybe? Robert Pattinson. Oooooh yes.

Yesterday Deadline Hollywood came out with a report that GK Films is developing a project for Angelina Jolie, based on a 2009 BBC miniseries called Unforgiven. It’s about a woman who, after fifteen years in prison for murdering two police officers, attempts to reconnect with her sister only to find herself the target of a revenge plot hatched by the sons of one of the men she killed. GK is already partnered with Angelina to produce her Bosnian War love story, and Unforgiven is being adapted for features by Christopher McQuarrie, one of the writers on Angelina’s upcoming The Tourist. This crowd must really get along.

As Deadline points out, Angelina doesn’t commit until she has a script in hand, but this project is supposedly fast-tracked, so it’s feasible it could be all systems go next spring or so. You don’t fast-track stuff you’re not willing to spend money on. And yeah, sure, I’d buy it. I like Angelina, I think she’s a good actress, and it sounds more Changeling than Beyond Borders. And there’s a twist.

There’s speculation in the wind that Robert Pattinson has been tapped for this project (I would assume as one of the vengeful sons). He had a meeting late last year with Angelina’s lawyer, Robert Offer–and a “celebratory” dinner, too–so his recent trip to see Salt with his agent is suddenly rife with new possibility. You know what? I like this, too. Pattinson needs a non-romantical role. He needs something that has nothing to do with how pretty he is and would actively work against his appeal. As Fight Club turned Brad Pitt from pretty boy to man’s man, so could a violent, explosive role transform Pattinson.

The Brangelunatics and the Twihards supporting the same movie. Can you imagine?

[From Sarah @ LaineyGossip]

If Robert Pattinson says one nice thing about Angelina Jolie in print, the Twihards might form a hormonal lynch mob and finish the job that Aniston started. And then the tabloids will have a f-cking field day. “Kristen Stewart cries: Angelina stole my man!” Or: “Brad runs to Aniston after Angie ruffles Pattinson’s hair!” Or “Sparkles meets the twins & the gerbils: It’s serious!” You know that Empress Zahara will have none of this. She’ll take one look at Pattinson and tell him to step off. There’s another headline.

But I totally agree that Pattinson would be well-served by taking on a gritty supporting role – and I think it would be cute if he and Angelina worked together. He’s not her type anyway, in my opinion.

    My wish:

    Brangelunatics and TWihards kill each other.
    Less of these morons and world peace may be possible.

  2. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Ugh Angelina is not ever going to leave Brad unless he fu*ks up. Angelina could work with the god of sex and debauchery on a film and she still wouldn’t leave Brad.

    I read about this the other day and I am excited. This is gritty, its drama, and its perfect for Angie. OMG I can already see Rob and Angelina in it. I am not a Twilight fan at all (Love R-Patz though) but if I can get a cinematic orgasm from watching Johnny Depp and Angie on screen, I am gonna achieve the equivalent of female ejaculation if these two play in a movie together. Yay!!!!

  3. Katie says:

    I remember back when Brad Pitt WAS the god of sex to a lot of people. Time is cruel.

    you SLAY me. kudos.

  5. bite me says:

    what exactly did aniston start…anyway this sounds interesting

  6. Sans says:

    @Love Angelina You are too much. He’ll do. I had fun with the Twilight stuff . I was shocked the first was good. Not up there with Lost Boys or Interview with the Vampire. Good though. After 3, dont care too much anymore. I do want to see the girl become a vamp though. This would be a hit just with Angie. The twihards didn’t run to see him in that one flop of a movie he did….so. Not a B.O. draw. He needs this. Longs Justin Timberlake stays away. Zac Efron too.

  7. The Hamm is My Dream Man says:

    There is no real way of knowing if she’s really going to do anything until it’s announced in the trades and even then it could not be true or she could drop out due to any number of reasons. We’ll see about this.

    This sounds kinda interesting so I hope they get someone else to play this part-the only times she’s played “gritty” well were back when that was just who she was. And even then she’s totally one-note and just yells and breathes heavily when she doesn’t know what else to do.

  8. nan says:

    @ Maggie, the same wish goes to people like you…who are unnecessarily vicious.

    This movie already sounds like a winner to me.

  9. marie says:

    OMG. I hope this is true I want to see Angelina Jolie and Robert Pattinson in a film. And I agree Rob has had too many romance, sexy films lately. He need to do action flick. He would fit in I am sure.

  10. original kate says:

    is it just me, but is angie looking really great lately? like she’s gained weight, or gotten some sleep, or something. for awhile she was looking haggard. she should always wear jewel tones, or black.

  11. Loll says:

    I don’t think she really has a type. The men that we know of are not very similar except for maybe brad and her first husband but that’s just based on how they both look like nice guys. Billy bob is nothing like the two. — I don’t think twihlight will major meltdown will last too long. They always have mini meltdowns anyway and then they get news about rpatz and kstew and all is right in the world again. But I do think rpatz is hotter than botoxic Pitt. Rpatz has more character to his face ;)

  12. meme says:

    @maggie – AMEN TO THAT and be forewarned, you will get attacked:-)

    And to really make them go nuts, have Braddy in a picture with no talent Kirsten Stewart.

    @original kate – yeah, it’s called restylane and botox

  13. Manda3 says:

    Sounds like a good plot. We’ll see. AJ seems to kill the mood. You know.

  14. Emma says:

    @original kate: I agree, I think Angelina is looking great here, especially in the first pic.

    The movie sounds interesting!

  15. aenflex says:

    I cannot wait for Jolie to put stars in Pattinson’s eyes, simply to watch Kristen Stewart shudder, (which is about the only thing she does well)! Oh I will soooo forgive Jolie for being a husband taker if she just does me this one little favor!!

  16. hairball says:

    nan – agree

    It’s sad how basically some people think someone should go kill him or herself / a great tragedy has happened because a person is looking older. There is WAY more to life. For one, being comfortable with yourself and having a purpose in life.

  17. Miss. Thang says:

    That series of pictures at the bottom is cracking my shit up!!

  18. meme says:

    “It’s sad how basically some people think someone should go kill him or herself / a great tragedy has happened because a person is looking older.” Who thinks that? That’s nuts.

  19. Cam says:

    I would definitely watch it, sounds like a win to me. They’re both great actors.

    Twihards can suck it, it’s high time they realized Pattinson is not their perfect and sparkly Edward Cullen, so leave him alone.

    @original kate yeah i know! AJ looks better than ever, like ‘more alive’ or something.

  20. meme says:

    “like ‘more alive’ or something” ROTFLMAO

  21. laura says:

    Booaah! Is this really true? Or, at least, i hope so…This would be a hit! They are both beautiful people and good actors. I can imagine how the media and press making a feast out of them. And to hell with the haters!

  22. Cheyenne says:

    I’ll watch it if they put somebody other than Robert Pattinson in it. He’s gorgeous and he can’t act for shit.

  23. mslewis says:

    This will only happen if Angelina likes the script. But it does sound like an interesting concept and Angelina would be great in it. As for the twihards going to see it . . . if I remember correctly, Patterson had at least one movie recently that was not Twilight and none of his so-called fans bothered to see it and it kind of bombed at the BO. (I can’t remember the name of it so I can’t look up the actual numbers.) So, really, I have a feeling it will be Angelina’s fans who mostly pay to see this movie since the twihards only want to see their man as a vampire. I do think, eventually, Patterson will break out and become a real movie star. It will have to be when he loses his “pretty” and starts to look a bit more manly.

  24. Tiffany says:


    You beat me to it. If Robert Patterson were to co-star with AJ, he would get eaten alive, by Queen Z. I hope that Angie warns him beforehand.

  25. Nanea says:

    @ # 7 – The Hamm:
    Deadline Hollywood is *the* trades, a site above all others. THR and Variety have steadily declined and are not as respected any longer as they used to be.

    And I want this to happen, only to see if Kaiser’s idea of Empress Z’s reaction is correct.

  26. Madison says:

    I agree he’s not her type and she’s not his type either, they are both too old/young for each other. I can see the tabloids making something out of nothing if they were to make this movie together, the movie sounds interesting.

  27. DD says:

    Did you think Brad Pitt was her type? I know I didn’t. Quite frankly, I don’t think Angelina has a type. I hope Rob is like Leo Dicaprio, his looks get better as he ages, because right now I think he’s kind of gross. I thought the same of Leo when he was younger, but now I think he’s the shit(that means hot right?).

  28. DD says:

    @Love Angelina… NO THANKS for that visual.

  29. teri says:

    I don’t find Pattinson cute nor sexy, just don’t get it. Brad is simply fine and I’m sure Brad is all she needs. Pattinson should feel priveleged to work with Angelina who’s earned her honors in HW.

  30. moopsie says:

    robert is sooo hot it hurts

  31. nnn says:

    But Angelina has never been into boytoys.

    She is not a cougar and strikes me as being mature and precocious to even perceive a man her age (at this point) as a potential partner.BBT said that she became too mature for his taste when she wanted to become a mum and stopped the destructive and juvenile behaviour. She became too adult as he stayed the child and as he said ‘got scared’.

    Plus her history tend to confirm that she is more into long term relationships, hence she had no problems marrying each time she thought he was the one, whatever her young age.

    Therefore i don’t beleive that she will ever have a relationship without considering the longterm aspect, including the equation of her own children and the father figure in their life.

    And Pattison is very far from the step father figure. He is a child who probably makes Jolie’s daughter dreaming about him more than her.

    Oh, and one more thing, jolie has never dump a man she is with to be with another one. I don’t recall any of her ex husbands or any other man she supposedly dated without any confirmation from both parts, complaining to have been dumped by her for another one.

    So the speculation shouldn’t even be brought up for a woman who is not known for dumping men to begin with.

  32. sa says:

    I think jen is more hot than angie, But besides that i think rob can’t act, so maybe a supporting role would be good for him. Brad is ten times hotter than rob at robs age and brad is still hotter. Oh and brad can act.

  33. Katy says:

    Goodness, she is looking positively waxen (one of the undead perhaps?). And he is awfully, awfully plain – strange looking even. Shudder….

  34. M says:

    This would not be a good move for Robert Pattinson, I think. Maybe if AJ was not in the movie but a more “serious” type actress to play the mother. Need to give more thought. . .

  35. bw says:

    Sounds interesting! Wonder what country, era, decade, it would be set in? She could play that role a number of ways. I don’t know much about Robt. Pattinson’s acting, but he definitely looks like he could play the part of an angry, revenge-consumed young man.

  36. BB says:

    Oh yes, Pattinson can act. I´ve seen his indie movie “Remember Me”, and “Little Ashes” before he became famous. This is a good project for him, also because with AJ in it.

    @#6 Sans: Pattinson´s latest indie movie was a success earning over $58M with only §16M production costs, and to think only few theaters have showed it. DVDs are selling good, too. I suggest you try to reseach what a BO hit and a flop are…

  37. Chris says:

    I’m not going to get my hopes up simply because this would be the most amazing thing ever and I don’t want to be disappointed if it doesn’t happen.

  38. Victoria says:

    Fifteen years in prison? Will AJ do a Hillary Swank or come out of prison looking like a movie star with a fake big wig and big breasts?

    How about those prison tattoos? She already has those.

    After 15 tears in prison she should come out butch and tough. Is AJ ready to act like a white trash con? Or is her character really innocent?

  39. Chris says:

    What a world we live in when an actor like Robert Pattinson has a higher profile than an actor like Ryan Gosling. I can understand teens and tweens liking Pattison because of the Twilight series, but adults as well?

  40. Chris says:

    What a strange world we live in where an actor like Robert Pattinson has a higher profile than an actor like Ryan Gosling.

    I can understand that teen and tweenies like Pattinson because of the Twilight series, but adults?

  41. Holly says:

    Their pairing would be perfect, simply because both are more known for their personal lives than their acting. And both have absolutely INSANE fan bases. This one would definitely make 100′s of millions.

  42. BB says:

    I don´t understand some of the reactions here. They might be making this movie together not as a couple, but Pattinson as the villain…revenged-consumed young man, so to say. But why comparing him to Brad or any other stars? Is the “green-eyed monster” on the go again? Well, AJ is beautiful and sexy…Robert´s good looks unique and hypnotic. These make the movie more interesting to watch!

    Not one bit XDDD.
    He’s too english, too clean and such.

    @ Love Angelina – Ewww, way to much information thank you very much!
