Brad Pitt has been trying to reconnect with Jennifer Aniston since his split with Angelina Jolie. Now Brad is extending the ultimate olive branch to his first wife: a movie role!
According to NW magazine, the actor is seeking for a leading lady for his upcoming sci-flick flick Ad Astra. And he is having in mind Jennifer Aniston for the part.
And it is not just the fact that the ex-couple is friends again. Pitt is savvy enough to know that a double billing with his ex will put bums on cinema seats. Reportedly, he’s been talking her up to the film’s director James Gray.
“Teaming up with Jen would absolutely guarantee that the movie would be a huge hit,” a source told the publication. “When they were married, Brad and Jen always wanted to work together but the right project…just never materialised.”
What is important is that, apparently, Jen is considering accepting Brad’s offer. “Right now, Jen’s all charged up over the idea of acting with Brad,” the insider added. “It’s been her dream to move past comedies and into more dramatic roles.”
It is undeniable that the movie will make a killing and that the “Friends” star will win respect in the industry. Nonetheless, there’s an even sweeter reason for the former couple to team up again!
Just like NW claims, it seems that originally the role was meant for Angelina Jolie, Brad’s second ex-wife, and “there’s no other woman that gets under Ange’s skin like Jen”, the source said.
“Stepping into her shoes will be the sweetest revenge.”
We are hoping and looking forward that the movie will do better at the box office than Brad and Angelina’s 2015 co-starred By the Sea, which was a major flop!
