Jolie has only praise for Universal. "They have created a very special place for storytellers," she said in the release. "I look forward to the continued passion and support they have provided to me as a filmmaker."
Pitt and Jolie infamously met on the set of the 2005 action hit “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” and fell in love.
Jolie is currently in post-production on “Unbroken,” an epic drama she also directed, based on the true story of Olympian and war hero Louis Zamperini. Universal will release “Unbroken” on Christmas Day.
