Damn, those two lovebirds are simpatico!
For a while now, we’ve been trying to get Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt to dish details about her directorial debut, “In the Land of Blood and Honey,” and his rumored cameo in the project. Last December, all Jolie would say about whether Pitt was involved in the film, a love story about a relationship between a Serbian man and a Bosnian woman in the lead-up to the 1992 Bosnian war, was this: “Possibly.”
Taking a cue from his lip-sealed lady, Pitt was determined at the Toronto International Film Festival this week not to say a peep about “Blood and Honey.”
“I will say nothing,” he declared. “Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing.”
His “Moneyball” co-star Jonah Hill, sitting right beside him, was happy to fill the void. “It is the best college sex comedy I have ever seen in my entire life!” he cracked, before openly wondering, “I have no idea what you guys are talking about. It doesn’t sound like a funny movie to me. What is ’In the Land of Blood and Honey?’ ”
We filled Hill in. The movie, which marks Jolie’s directorial debut and is eying a December 23 release, “illustrates the consequences of the lack of political will to intervene in a society stricken with conflict,” according to a press release from distributor FilmDistrict.
“Oh, OK, sorry, it just sounded like a serious movie,” he said by way of explaining his joke.
All of which led to Pitt correcting us that it wasn’t just directed by his girlfriend. “And written. Written by,” he made it known. “I’m not bragging.”
Check out everything we’ve got on “In the Land of Blood and Honey.”
