While sadly the Coen brothers will not be developing their story of a World War II soldier surviving a plane crash and the impossible odds that follow, they will soon be developing the story of a World War II soldier surviving a plane crash and the impossible odds that follow. But it won’t star Brad Pitt. But it will be directed by Angelina Jolie. But it won’t be called, “To the White Sea”. But it will be called, “Unbroken”. Wait what?
The Hollywood Reporter is um… reporting that the Coens have signed on to develop the script for Angelina’s directorial debut based on the true life events of Lou Zamerini. True life events that sound kinda like the novel they worked to adapt and film with
Chad Brad Pitt.
Wow. Art imitates life. More details are available at The Hollywood Reporter. Btw, does anyone know some of the other films the Coens have script written? They’ve mentioned their role as hired guns before, but aren’t always listed in the credits.
