Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie is gearing up to work on another directorial biopic on the life of photojournalist Sir Don McCullin.
Jolie, 45, will be directing the film based on the best-selling autobiography Unreasonable Behavior.
The book is based on the life of McCullin, a war photographer in Vietnam and Northern Ireland and or this piece, Jolie chose to cast Revenant star Tom Hardy.
The production aspect of the film will be managed by Hardy and his partner Dan Baker, under their company Hardy Son & Baker.
For the unversed, McCullin, 85, covered the effects of war and even rampant poverty back in the day and according to an overseas correspondent for the Sunday Times, his coverage of Vietnam and northern Ireland won him special praise and appreciation.
The Tomb Rider star has taken up director’s hat for a number of films in the past, including, A Place in Time, In the Land of Blood and Honey and By the Sea. Thus Unreasonable Behavior will be her sixth directorial film.
“Having viewed Angelina's last film on Cambodia (and having spent so much time during the war there) I was very impressed at how she made such a powerful and accurate representation of the place at that time," said McCullin in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. "I feel as if I am in safe, capable and professional hands with her."
