Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to Star in New Movie Together

The couple haven't been seen together in a movie since starring in Mr. & Mrs. Smith back in 2005, which sparked their real-life love affair, but it is believed they have "an exciting new venture" in the pipeline for the near future. The 38-year-old actress has reportedly penned the script for the upcoming movie, which will be set in Europe. "People will not want to miss it!" an insider said.

Angelina is currently working in post-production on her film Unbroken after she impressed with her directorial debut in The Land of Blood and Honey in 2011. She also voices the title character in Disney's Maleficent, which will hit theaters on May 30.

Cara Delevingne Set for “Massive” Peter Pan Role

Cara DelevingneCara Delevingne has landed a "massive role" as a mermaid in Peter Pan.

The superstar model has been open about her ambitions as an actress and she will get her first big break when she takes on the role in the upcoming blockbuster adaptation of the childhood classic.

"It's a massive role for Cara to land considering she is a relatively unknown actress. However, she is perfect to play a mermaid as she has a body to die for and is very glamorous on screen. Cara is no stranger to being in next to nothing thanks to modeling so it's unlikely she'll feel self-conscious while shooting. It will be quite a demanding role as there will be a lot of underwater work and stunts. Filming underwater could scare a lot of actresses but Cara is definitely up for the challenge," an insider said, speaking to The Sun.

Director Joe Wright will be in charge of the new movie, and it is said he is "delighted" to have Cara committed to the film. "Joe is delighted to have signed up Cara. He considers her to have real star potential and a big career beyond the catwalk," the source added.

Cinecast: Star Wars VII Casting, Tarantino’s New Film, Marvel’s ‘Ultimates’

Margot Robbie+ Jesse Plemons - famous for both his role as Breaking Bad's Todd and looking a lot like a younger Philip Seymour Hoffman - is apparently being called back for Star Wars: Episode VII auditions, although Disney/Lucasfilm is keeping mum about it.

+ No one has been cast yet and it's due to begin production this summer, but because it's a Quentin Tarantino project, you can guarantee that it will be full of awesomesauce. Especially considering the name of the film is officially The Hateful Eight (for those who don't know, it's a reference to the famous 1960 western The Magnificient Seven).

+ Marvel has released details on its upcoming Ultimates project, which will apparently not feature one single white guy (yay!) - both leading male superheroes will be of a non-white background. Also more yayness: the All-New Ultimates will see FOUR female superheroes on the team.

+ Despite the meteoric success she's had starring in the Martin Scorsese black comedy The Wolf of Wall Street, Australian actress Margot Robbie says that she wants to be cast in a Quentin Tarantino film next.

The 32-year-old - who is not particularly known for her own vocals - also added, "Yeah because it's not about singing like her. You'd have to use her voice, you'd have to use her essence."

Brad Pitt Films Cameo for ‘21 Jump Street’ Sequel

Jonah Hill and Brad PittHow could the sequel to 21 Jump Street top its predecessor's Johnny Depp cameo? Simple: cast Brad Pitt!

The 12 Years a Slave producer and star is joining forces (for a little screen time, anyway) with his Moneyball co-star Jonah Hill in the upcoming sequel to the 2012 film adaptation of the 80's television series. Though Pitt is known for dramas and thrillers, funnyman Hill was able to coax the 50-year-old star into appearing in 22 Jump Street.

Pitt's cameo sees him as a lowly librarian when Hill and co-star Channing Tatum come across him as he puts on a poor acting performance. "The scene is very funny and the guys had a great time doing it. Brad was a great sport and the producers were thrilled that he took part," an insider said. While the proverbial beans seem to have been spilled with Pitt's cameo (unlike Depp's, which was suspected but never confirmed prior to release of the first film), the Oscar-nominated actor is sure to still deliver the laughs.

22 Jump Street hits theaters on June 13, 2014.
