We first reported on the project back in May, which marks the first time Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have starred in the same movie together since the 2005 action-thriller Mr. and Mrs. Smith. By the Sea reportedly centers on a couple's relationship, but no specific plot details have been released.
"I am very happy to continue my relationship with Donna (Langley) and the entire Universal team as I finish 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."
Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley had this to say in her statement.
"Angelina continues to showcase her extraordinary storytelling abilities in front of and behind the camera and we are thrilled to extend our relationship with her on By the Sea. Angelina and Brad represent two of Hollywood's brightest talents and we are excited to be a part of their collaboration on this powerful piece."
