Angelina Jolie to star in new thriller by "Sicario" writer

Angelina Jolie is in final talks to star in Taylor Sheridan's new thriller.

30 Jan – It looks like 2019 is going to be another busy year for Angelina Jolie as she is now finalising a deal to star in new thriller "Those Who Wish Me Dead".

According to Deadline, Taylor Sheridan will be directing the movie, with plans to start filming this May as soon as the second season of his TV series "Yellowstone" wraps up.

Sheridan also wrote the screenplay based on the 2014 novel of the same name by Michael Koryta, which follows a teen who witnessed a murder and is hiding from killers in a witness protection program as a wildfire breaks out, but the movie is said to stray away from the book in certain parts.

Sheridan's notable works include writing credits for thrillers such as Sicario", sequel "Sicario: Day of the Soldado", Oscar-nominated "Hell or High Water", and his directorial debut "Wind River".

There's no further info on Jolie's role in the movie but in the meantime, fans can look forward to her return to the big screen next year in Disney's "Maleficent 2", her first starring role since 2015's "By the Sea".
