Jolie to play widow of journalist Daniel Pearl -- Variety

Saw this on Yahoo! and thought it was interesting. I believe Brad Pitt took Mariane Pearl to one of U2's LA shows last spring.

Jolie to play widow of journalist Daniel Pearl

Actress Angelina Jolie will star in a movie as the widow of murdered Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, trade paper Daily Variety reported in its Thursday edition.

"A Mighty Heart," adapted from Mariane Pearl's memoir of the same name, will begin shooting within the next five weeks, the paper said. The book details Pearl's search for her husband, who was abducted and beheaded by militants in Pakistan in early 2002.

"I am delighted that Angelina Jolie will be playing my role in the adaptation of my book," Daily Variety quoted Pearl as saying. "I deeply admire her work and what she is committed to."

English filmmaker Michael Winterbottom, famed for such war-based films as "Welcome to Sarajevo" and "The Road to Guantanamo," will direct. Jolie's boyfriend, actor Brad Pitt, will serve as a producer of the project, which is set up at Paramount Vantage, the art-house arm of Viacom Inc.'s Paramount Pictures.

This will be terrific. Winterbottom is great at handling subjects such as this, and Jolie ain't half bad herself when properly motivated (see Gia and Girl, Interrupted).

This sounds like a Jolie-Pitt pairing that I might actually see
