Angelina Jolie to Adopt Seventh Child

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celeb News, Celebrity Gossip, Rumors,

Jolie-Pitt familyI suppose that foreign children are nice holiday presents for the Pitt-Jolies—Salt starlet Angelina Jolie is reportedly set to adopt a baby from Syria.

The Oscar-winning actress, who already has three adopted children, as well as three biological ones, with partner Brad Pitt, has started the process to bring home a baby girl from the Asian country.

Brad, however, is said to not be keen on the idea, but an undeterred Angelina began the proceedings on her own. A source said, “He has made it clear that six children are more than he can handle. The idea of one more seemed ludicrous, but Angie is determined to complete her rainbow family.”

A spokesman for the Immigration and Naturalization Service in Washington D.C. confirmed that “only Angelina’s name was on the adoption papers.” Angelina adopted her eldest son Maddox - now eight - from Cambodia in 2001, while she was still married to second husband Billy Bob Thornton, but was legally his only parent.

After splitting from Billy, she went on to adopt Zahara from Ethiopia in 2005 and soon after getting together with Brad, he legally became the father of both children. The couple then had their first biological child, Shiloh, in May 2006 before adopting Pax - now five - from Vietnam in March 2007. They then became the proud parents of twins, Knox and Vivienne, who were born in July 2008.


Inglourious Basterds Prequel Possibly in the Works

Inglourious Basterds posterWith one of the world’s most vied-for actors at your command and scoring an impressive $38 million at the box office, it’s nearly impractical for Quentin Tarantino to not pursue another Inglourious Basterds film.

According to Eli Roth, the chances are pretty good.

“Everybody would drop whatever they’re doing to go back to work with Quentin… All the time, Brad says, ‘Prequel, prequel!’ All the ‘basterds’ would jump on it in a second. We have three scenes that we shot in Boston that take place before the war, and Quentin says if he does the prequel, he’s going to use them. They’re not going to be DVD extras.”

Without spilling too many secrets, Roth briefly describes one of the scenes, which features a rather random cameo…

Box Office Breakdown: Meatballs Rolls to Another Victory

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

was no substitute for meatballs.

Despite competition from a Bruce Willis film, a music-based remake and a sci-fi horror entry, remained the theatergoers’ order of choice for the second week in a row. The children’s book adaptation had Sony dining to the tune of $25 million—over $10 million more than the second place finisher.

Many thought Willis, who hasn’t had a major role since 2007’s Live Free or Die Hard, was on track to take first this weekend. Unfortunately, his

hair

movie was considered a big letdown given its $15 million gross and $80 million budget. Meanwhile, , a remake of the 1980 hit, had no one feeling like they wanted to live forever. The MGM feature only rung up $10 million for third place.

Sequel News: Sherlock Holmes, Silent Hill and More


Sherlock Holmes: Are you looking forward to seeing Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law in Sherlock Holmes? Are you already convinced the movie deserves a sequel? Although we still have to wait until Christmas to unwrap the Guy Ritchie film, Warner Bros. is already prepping for a follow-up…and word has it, Brad Pitt may be involved. Writers Kieran and Michele Mulroney (Justice League: Mortal) will most likely be tasked with writing the second installment, which may feature the Inglourious Basterds star as Moriarty, Holmes’ nemesis. (Rumor has it Pitt even makes an appearance in December’s outing.) No other names have yet been attached to the project.

Box Office Breakdown: Chance of Meatballs is Winning Recipe

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

While it may not have had a Damon, an Aniston or a Fox, had something no other film did this weekend: a win. The animated adaptation raked in $30.3 million over the weekend easily pushing it to the top of the charts. The PG-rated entry towered over the box office and nearly tripled its nearest competitor (The Informant). The 3-D film also gave Sony Pictures Animation its biggest debut to date.

Elsewhere, two Hollywood beauties were struggling to make a respectable showing. Despite (or because of) a number of notable quotes, Megan Fox failed to muster any interest in her first starring vehicle. Jennifer’s Body, a horror film penned by Diablo Cody, raised a whopping $6.9 million for a fifth-place finish. (I’m not even sure that would be enough to fund one day of a Transformers production.) Megan Fox might not be a fan of Michael Bay, but she better be grateful she met him.

Box Office Breakdown: Tyler Perry Can Win All By Himself

I Can Do Bad By Myself

Leave it to Tyler Perry to take on the horror industry.

The actor/writer/director’s latest film, , earned $23.4 million over the weekend—enough to stop The Final Destination from taking its third crown in a row. The urban comedy, starring Taraji P. Henson and Mary J. Blige, more than doubled its nearest competitor since opening Friday and gave Perry his third biggest debut to date.

I Can Do Bad also topped , the newest scare flick to enter the scene. Although the movie boasts more recognizable names (Audrina Patridge, Rumer Willis) than Destination, the R-rater barely scraped up $5.1 million for a 6th place finish.
