I seriously can’t tell you how Angelina Jolie does what she does outside of the movie industry and at the same time combined it with what she does in the industry. IMDB.com lists her as being involved in not one, two, or even three, but a whopping five movies in 2008 alone. You would think that with all the globe-hopping to save poor African children, the girl wouldn’t have much time for something as superfluous as, you know, movies. Her latest is the true-life movie “Changeling”, which will be directed by Clint Eastwood. Joining Jolie in the period crime film will be Jeffrey Donovan, Colm Feore and John Malkovich.
The story follows a woman (Jolie) whose son goes missing in 1920s Los Angeles. The police return the wrong child and the woman is thrown into an insane asylum for disagreeing with the LAPD. When it seems that her real son has been murdered by a child serial killer and the child returned admits to fraud, she takes her case to the city council and takes down the mayor, the police chief and several corrupt officers, concurrently sparking changes in the insanity legislation.
Donovan will play a police captain, Feore the chief of police and Malkovich a reverend.
Also joining the cast are Jason Butler Harner (“John Adams”), who portrays a mechanic accused of murdering the woman’s son, as well as Amy Ryan and Michael Kelly.
You gotta wonder where Jolie finds time to perform her, you know, wifey duties to Brad…
In any case, here are some pictures of Angelina Jolie on the set of “The Changeling” (Thanks, Brad!):
