Angelina Jolie - Angelina Jolie To Portray Late Mum In Biopic?
Angelina Jolie is set to celebrate the life of her late mother Marcheline Bertrand by portraying her onscreen in a planned biopic, according to U.K. reports.
The Hollywood beauty is working on the project with her fiance Brad Pitt, who is said to be producing the film through his company Plan B next year (14), reports the Sunday Express.
Details surrounding the movie are scarce, but it is likely to detail Bertrand's decision to turn her back on acting and dedicate her time to humanitarian causes, such as her work with female refugees in Afghanistan and her efforts to launch the Give Love Give Life organisation to fight gynaecological cancers.
Bertrand died in 2007 at the age of 56 after a lengthy battle with ovarian cancer.
Jolie, who has continued her mother's charity efforts, recently revealed she had undergone a double mastectomy after learning she carried the Brca1 gene mutation, which doctors estimated gave her an 87 per cent chance of developing breast cancer.
