Angelina Jolie is showing no signs of slowing down as a filmmaker. After making her debut with 2011’s In the Land of Blood and Honey, Jolie won the highly coveted director’s job of the World War II drama Unbroken. She put together a top-notch team including screenwriters Joel and Ethan Coen and cinematographer Roger Deakins, and while that highly anticipated film is slated to hit theaters in December, Jolie is already hard at work on her next directorial effort, the small-scale drama By the Sea starring herself and Brad Pitt. But now, in the midst of shooting one film and readying another for release, Jolie is already lining up her next next film as a director: Africa. Jolie has signed on to direct the biopic of paleo-archeologist Richard Leakey, who devoted his life to combating elephant and rhino poaching.
Hit the jump for more on the project, including the news that Deakins will be putting his genius to work in capturing the African landscape.
