Angelina Jolie has said that “the freedom to tell important stories and bring them to a global audience” is at the heart of a three-year film and television deal she signed.
The deal with Fremantle will see the Oscar winner produce, direct and star in a slew of feature films, documentaries and original TV series.
The 46-year-old Hollywood star said: “I am delighted to be working with such a passionate and forward-thinking team with an international perspective.”
Jolie will produce and direct the feature film Without Blood – an adaptation of Alessandro Baricco’s best-selling novel about War, Vengeance and Healing – in Italy in May.
The Eternals star, who is a special envoy for the UN refugee agency, will also be working on upcoming documentaries and original series, Fremantle has announced.
Jennifer Mullin, Global CEO of Fremantle, said: “We are thrilled to be working with Angelina and to join creative forces in the next phase of her extraordinary career as a producer, director, actress and philanthropist.
“Fremantle and Angelina share a passion and ambition to tell compelling stories from around the world for everyone in the world.
“We embrace and support the creative independence of our partners and look forward to working with Angelina to bring powerful and unique stories to a global audience.”
