Engaged Hollywood couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt will reportedly marry onscreen in their new movie.
The stars, who fell in love on the set of 2005 spy film Mr. & Mrs. Smith and went on to become a real life couple, plan to reunite on-set in Jolie's latest directing project, By The Sea.
Editors of The Hollywood Reporter now state the couple will exchange vows on camera as part of the story, which was written by Jolie herself.
The couple's real life engagement was announced in 2012, and they are regularly hit with rumours about when the wedding will take place.
The film which will reteam Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt on the big screen will be called By The Sea. Jolie will direct the drama for Universal Pictures, and the real life couple will produce the movie.
The pair last appeared onscreen together in 2005's Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
It is believed the new film will be shot on location on the Maltese islands of Malta and Gozo.
The actress/director confirmed the news on Friday (18Jul14), stating, "I am very happy to continue my relationship with the entire Universal team as I finish (current film project) Unbroken and begin work on By the Sea. They have created a very special place for storytellers, and I look forward to the continued passion and support they have provided to me as a filmmaker."
Jolie's Unbroken, which chronicles the life of Olympian and World War Two hero Louis Zamperini, will be released in December (14).
Malta's Prime Minister Joseph Muscat is celebrating after learning Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt plan to make their new movie on his islands. Brangelina recently visited Malta and Gozo and it appears they liked what they saw - Muscat has confirmed the real-life couple's new project will be filmed there.
In a statement obtained by Us Weekly magazine, he writes, "I'm happy that Hollywood producers have once again chosen Malta for their project, and we will be delighted to host Mr. Pitt, Ms. Jolie, and their family for the second time in just a few years.
"I'm sure that this film will help put our beautiful sister island of Gozo on the world map."
Pitt filmed scenes for zombie apocalypse movie Wold War Z in Malta, and Jolie and the couple's kids joined the actor for the Mediterranean shoot.
Reports suggest the new film, a love story written by Jolie, will be filmed in Gozo harbour village Mgarr throughout August (14).
The project will be the couple's first film together since they met and fell in love while making Mr & Mrs Smith in 2007.
Brad Pitt is being deployed once again. This time, in David Ayer's upcoming war drama Fury, which centers on a five-man tank crew making one last push against the Germans in the final weeks of World War II. But the team finds itself terribly outnumbered and behind enemy lines. Pitt's Sergeant Wardaddy (nope, that's not a joke, that's really his name) stands at the center of Fury. He's a hardened, weary-eyed patrol leader that has marched his tank squad across the numerous fronts of WWII. Now his team is preparing to strike at the heart of the Nazi war machine, but the long battle has chipped away at their souls. Through its grit and intensity, the Fury trailer serves foremost as a reminder that Pitt might very well be at his best when playing a war hero.
His rugged good looks, strong jaw, and steady voice perfectly mirror the type of brave men we imagine were really stomping through the fields of Europe and Africa during the real WWII. Wardaddy seems eerily similar to Inglourious Basterds' Lt. Aldo Raine, a man who also fought Nazis behind enemy lines... though we don't think Wardaddy will be as scalp-happy as Lt. Raine. Both men had scars that told stories and experienced events during the war that fundamentally changed them.
Pitt is great at giving these soldiers layers. Wardaddy is a man putting on a brave face, even as his foundations are cracking at the joints. Looking as far back as 1994's Legends of the Fall, Pitt has always been great at giving soldier characters a sense of duty, honor, toughness, and vulnerability; all things that seem to be rolled into Pitt's portrayal of Wardaddy. We'll have to wait and see to be sure, but Fury looks like the latest in a line of good war performances from Brad Pitt.
Fury hits theaters November 14.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are reportedly scouting for locations for the next film they'll make together in Malta. The stars jetted off to the Mediterranean over the weekend, according to reports and local sources reveal they have been spotted checking out the islands' movie-rich locations.
Jolie recently revealed she had written a film, in which she and her fiance would star.
It will mark the couple's first time onscreen together since Mr. & Mrs. Smith a decade ago.
Pitt and Jolie met and fell in love while making the action film.
The Hollywood prankster who was sentenced to community service and psychological counselling after lunging at Brad Pitt on the red carpet of Angelina Jolie's new movie last month (May14) has been caught on camera having a merry old time during his punishment. Video footage obtained by The Hollywood Reporter shows Ukrainian journalist Vitalii Sediuk goofing off and riding a merry-go-round while serving his court-ordered work sentence in Los Angeles.
Sediuk, who has also been ordered to stay away from Pitt and Jolie, was assigned to collect litter in Los Angeles' Griffith Park, but it appears he has also been spending time partaking in leisurely activities.
In the new video, the prankster, sporting an orange safety vest, can be seen shaking a pair of maracas with a group of percussionists and playing conga drums.
While, in another photo also obtained by the publication, a smiling Sediuk sits astride a carved horse on the park's famous merry-go-round.
Sediuk has a string of unpleasant celebrity encounters on his hit list - he was arrested at the 2012 Grammy Awards after storming the stage, he received a slap from Will Smith as he attempted to kiss the star at a red carpet event, and he was apprehended by police in Cannes after trying to dive under America Ferrera's dress during a red carpet event at the film festival last month (May14).
He spent three nights in jail following his Pitt stunt at the Malificent premiere on 28 May (14) and pleaded no contest to one count each of battery and disturbing the peace.
Angelina Jolie is refusing to increase her security after her fiance Brad Pitt was accosted on the red carpet by a prankster last week (ends01Jun14). Ukrainian journalist Vitalii Sediuk was arrested after he scrambled over a security barrier at the Los Angeles premiere of Jolie's new film Maleficent and appeared to swipe Pitt in the face. However, the Oscar winner is adamant she will not bring in more bodyguards in the aftermath of the frightening incident.
She tells the Associated Press, "People like that are an exception to the rule. Most fans are just wonderful. We've had a wonderful experience over the years, and we're very grateful for their support, and it will not change the way we behave." Pitt has also echoed his fiancee's sentiment in a statement, which reads, "I don't mind an exhibitionist, but if this guy keeps it up he's going to spoil it for the fans who have waited up all night for an autograph or a selfie, because it will make people more wary to approach a crowd."
A judge has banned the serial prankster from attending any future Hollywood events as part of his sentence for charges of battery and unlawful activity at a sporting event, theatrical or exhibition, stemming from the incident with Pitt. The 25 year old has previously been slapped by Will Smith, hugged Leonard DiCaprio's crotch, climbed underneath America Ferrera's dress, and was arrested at the 2013 Grammy Awards for attempting to grab Adele's prize from presenter Jennifer Lopez.
The Ukrainian journalist behind a series of red carpet pranks targeting the likes of Brad Pitt and Will Smith has apologised for upsetting Hollywood's biggest stars. After grappling with Pitt during the Los Angeles premiere of Maleficent last week (28May14), Vitalii Sediuk was slapped with a restraining order and battery and assault charges.
On Friday (30May14), the 25-year-old reporter was sentenced to 20 days of community service, 36 months of probation and ordered to pay $220 (£138) in fines, while a judge also barred him from attending any future Hollywood events. He sat down for his first U.S. interview on Monday (02Jun14) with Extra host Mario Lopez and tried to explain why he chose to pull bizarre stunts at high-profile events.
Sediuk said, "I am a different guy who thinks differently and has this entertainment spirit that probably people in Hollywood never experienced before. It's something different, controversial, extraordinary and it's hard to explain. I'm normal, at least I believe so. "I apologise for inconveniences that I created to many celebrities dealing with my style of entertainment... I feel sorry that I create inconveniences for (the) Brangelina (Pitt and Angelina Jolie) family because I knew there were no kids around, but they were at the premiere, and I kind of stole the spotlight from such an important moment."
As for Friday's sentencing, Sediuk added, "I wouldn't joke with the judge and I took them seriously because one thing you do for entertainment and other thing, when you have legal problems, and I have to tell you they're so many consequences I experience now."
In addition to his run-in with Pitt, Sediuk previously had red carpet encounters with Will Smith and Leonardo DiCaprio, and attempted to scramble under America Ferrera's gown on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival in France last month (May14). He was also arrested at the 2013 Grammy Awards after he attempted to grab Adele's Best Pop Vocal prize from presenter Jennifer Lopez.
Brad Pitt has broken his silence about his red carpet altercation with prankster Vitalii Sediuk, insisting the Ukrainian journalist is nothing but a "nutter".
The actor joined his fiancee Angelina Jolie and five of their six kids for the Hollywood screening of her latest film Maleficent last week (28May14), when Sediuk scrambled over a security barrier and attempted to hit Pitt in the face. The eccentric Ukrainian was wrestled to the ground and arrested and Pitt subsequently filed a restraining order against the prankster.
On Friday (30May14), Sediuk pleaded no contest to battery and assault charges and was sentenced to 20 days of community service and 36 months of probation and ordered to pay $220 (£138) in fines, while a judge also barred him from attending any future Hollywood events. Now Pitt is opening up about the ordeal in a statement to People magazine, revealing what many people didn't see after Sediuk lunged at him.
He explains, "I was at the end of the line signing autographs, when out the corner of my eye I saw someone stage-diving over the barrier at me. I took a step back; this guy had latched onto my lapels. "I looked down and the nutter was trying to bury his face in my crotch, so I cracked him twice in the back of the head - not too hard, but enough to get his attention, because he did let go. I think he was then just grabbing for a hand hold because the guys were on him, and he reached up and caught my glasses."
Pitt continues, "I don't mind an exhibitionist, but if this guy keeps it up he's going to spoil it for the fans who have waited up all night for an autograph or a selfie, because it will make people more wary to approach a crowd." The movie star also referenced Sediuk's last red carpet prank when the journalist attempted to scramble under America Ferrera's gown on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival last month (May14).
He adds, "He should know, if he tries to look up a woman's dress again, he's going to get stomped." The practical joker has also had red carpet encounters with Will Smith and Leonardo DiCaprio, and he was arrested at the 2013 Grammy Awards after he attempted to grab Adele's Best Pop Vocal prize from presenter Jennifer Lopez.
Brad Pitt's accused attacker Vitalii Sediuk has been sentenced to 20 days of community service after pleading no contest to striking the actor during the Hollywood premiere of Maleficent. The Ukrainian reporter was arrested after allegedly jumping over a security barrier at the El Capitan Theatre on Wednesday (28May14) and lunging at the movie star, appearing to strike him in the face.
He was held on $20,000 (£12,500) bail and on Friday morning (30May14), he was slapped with misdemeanour charges of battery, assault, unlawful activity at a sporting event, theatrical or exhibition and unlawful delay or interference of a sporting event, theatrical or exhibition.
He appeared before a Los Angeles judge hours later and pleaded no contest to battery and unlawful activity at a sporting event, theatrical or exhibition - and escaped with a relatively light punishment.
Sediuk was given the option of serving 30 days behind bars or 20 days of community labour, and he chose the latter, reports TMZ.com.
He was also handed 36 months probation and ordered to pay $220 (£138) in fines, while the judge also barred him from attending any future Hollywood events by banning him from going within 100 yards (91.44 metres) of the Staples Center and the L.A. Live complex, where the Grammy Awards are held.
In addition, the notorious red carpet prankster must stay away from the Hollywood and Highland shopping centre, where Wednesday's alleged attack took place, and keep his distance from Pitt and his fiancee, Maleficent star Angelina Jolie.
He is due to be released from police custody later on Friday.
Sediuk has become infamous for causing chaos on the red carpet - he previously made headlines in 2012, when he was slapped by Will Smith after he attempted to kiss the actor, and he was placed on probation after he was arrested for crashing the stage at the 2013 Grammy Awards, where he ran onstage and grabbed the microphone from Jennifer Lopez as she presented soul star Adele with the Best Pop Solo prize.
The 25-year-old troublemaker was also taken into custody at the recent Cannes Film Festival in France as he tried to crawl under America Ferrera's dress.
