Set photos from “Come Away”

Here is some on set photos from Come Away which is currently being filmed in London, UK. Unfortunately hasn’t Angelina been photographed but hopefully we will get some photos soon! We also added a project page for the film and we will keep all the latest news collected there as well.

Started on Tuesday, September 11, 2018, the recordings of the new film starring actress Angelina Jolie and actor David Oyelowo.

Several Twitter and Instagram users have shared on social networks, photos from the long film sets. The streets of London, in the UK, have been transformed into scenarios for the new film that will feature Brenda Chapman (“Valente”) and Marissa Kate Goodhill. The fantastic drama imagines a scenario in which Peter [Pan] and Alice [in Wonderland] are brothers, in a context previous to their famous stories.

When the eldest of the family dies early in a tragic accident, the couple of young protagonists – long before they are the stars of two of the most famous fables in history – are forced to protect their parents Rose and Jack (Jolie and Oyelowo) from despair of mourning. The burden of the task will present a crossroads: either the two brothers choose the reality they know at home or enter the world of imagination – which begins to create the perfect setting for their future journeys.

The role of Peter will be played by young actor Jordan A. Nash and the role of Alice will be played by young actress Keira Chansa. In addition to them, the film will also feature actor Michael Caine. Despite this, the film still does not have an expected debut date.

Angelina writes love letter to Agnès Varda

Angelina along with several other actresses has written their own love letter to the French director for ‘Interview’ magazine and you can read the all the letters in the press archive and Angelina’s letter below.

Angelina Jolie, Actress and director

When I think of Agnès, I think of us sitting barefoot on the floor after a screening of one of her films, talking about life and laughing. How do I do her justice? She is a woman in full, who combines grace and intellect with an irresistible sense of fun and lightness of spirit. She has learned to find joy in life and she transmits that to everyone around her. She’s not interested in conforming to anyone else’s idea of what a woman or an artist should be, and her independence of mind is part of what makes her so distinctive. I think her impact will continue to grow with time. People often speak of how she broke new ground for women filmmakers—and she has—but to discuss it that way is to limit her contribution. She broke new ground as an artist, period.
