Angelina Jolie's 'Unbroken' Starts Production
Check out some snaps of director Jolie in action right here...
New images have emerged from Angelina Jolie-directed flick, Unbroken.
The flick - which Mrs. Brad Pitt is also a producer on - follows the life of Olympian and war hero Louis 'Louie' Zamperini, played by ex-Skins actor Jack O’Connell, who, along with two other crewmen, survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII—only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp.
Jolie began shooting some of the most dramatic and challenging scenes on Wednesday, October 16, on location far out at sea in Moreton Bay, Australia, with O'Connell and co-stars Domhnall Gleeson and Finn Wittroc - who play his fellow airmen.
Working with cameras on a floating rig in choppy waters and braving the elements, with actors dieting for months to appear as depleted as their characters, Jolie completed a successful, yet challenging first day of a location shoot.Starring alongside O’Connell, Gleeson and Wittrock are Garrett Hedlund and John Magaro as fellow POWs, who find an unexpected camaraderie during their internment.
Alex Russell also stars as Zamperini’s brother, Pete, and in his English-language feature debut, Japanese actor Miyavi as the brutal camp guard known only to the men as The Bird.
In 2011, Ange made her movue directional debut with In the Land of Blood and Honey, which received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Foreign Language Film.
Unbroken is due to hit cinemas on January 16, 2015.
