Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may be newlyweds, but it doesn’t look like their honeymoon period will be reflected in the new movie they’re making together, By The Sea. That’s if these first pics are anything to go by.
EW doesn’t just have the pics either, as they’re also offering the first story details for the movie. They says the film is, ‘Set in France during the mid-1970s, Jolie plays Vanessa, a former dancer, and Pitt is her husband Roland, an American writer. As they travel the country together, they seem to be growing apart, but when they linger in one quiet, seaside town they begin to draw close to some of its more vibrant inhabitants, such as a local bar/café (War Horse and War Horse’s Niels Arestrup) and hotel owner (Richard Bohringer, The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover).’
Jolie isn’t just starring in the movie, as she’s also directing and wrote the script. She comments, “I chose to set By the Sea in the 1970s, not only because it is a colorful and alluring era, but because it removes many of the distractions of contemporary life and allows the focus to remain squarely on the emotions that the characters experience in their journey.”
The movie continues to shoot until November, with a 2015 release expected.
