Jolie Takes on First Film Role Since Birth

Angelina Jolie is re-teaming with Jack Black for her first film role since giving birth to daughter Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt in May.

The Oscar-winner will join Black, Dustin Hoffman, Jackie Chan, Lucy Liu and Ian McShane for the animated comedy Kung Fu Panda.

Jolie and Black also voiced characters in 2004’s animated movie Shark Tale.

Black will play Po The Panda, who slings noodles in a restaurant and loves kung fu, but doesn’t have the body required for practicing the martial art.

Jolie will provide the voice of a martial-arts master named Tigress, who must get the panda into fighting form after it is revealed he is the Chosen One to save the animals.

The movie is scheduled for release in May 2008.
