29 January 2015 10:32 AM, PST | GossipCop | See recent GossipCop news »

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are Not involved in the "fight to end all fights," despite a new Life & Style report, which claims "months of tension" boiled over earlier this month when Pitt didn't attend the Critics' Choice Awards with Jolie. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this allegation, which comes from the same magazine that predicted Pitt and Jolie were in "trouble" last spring, right before they got Married. »

29 January 2015 9:55 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Brad Pitt is in negotiations to star in Angelina Jolie's next movie. The 51-year-old actor has recently completed work on 'By the Sea', his 39-year-old wife's third directorial effort, and is now looking to land a part in her fourth film 'Africa', The Wrap reports. 'Africa' is a true story about paleoanthropologist Richard Leakey and his battle with the ivory poachers who threatened the African elephant population in the 1980s and Angelina - who raises six children with Brad - is working from a script written by Eric Roth. The brunette beauty has previously said: ''I've felt a deep connection to Africa and its culture for much of my life, and was taken with Eric's beautiful script about a man drawn into the violent conflict with elephant poachers who emerged with a deeper understanding of man's footprint and a profound sense of responsibility for the world around him. »

Colin Farrell Says ‘Well-Hung’ Ewan McGregor 'Should Be Proud'

29 January 2015 8:32 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Colin Farrell isn't ashamed to talk about his co-star Ewan McGregor's private parts.

In a new interview with Nylon Guys, the 38-year-old True Detective star -- who worked with Ewan in 2007's Cassandra's Dream -- is making it clear that the Scottish actor's not lacking down there.

"I don't think Ewan is as proud of his penis as most men who are as well-hung would -- or should -- or could be," Farrell jokes to the magazine. "I think that's the greatest demonstration of his innate humility, that he doesn't wear it like a badge of honor."

Photos: Stars In Their Underwear

Ewan, 43, is looking as handsome as ever on the cover of Nylon Guys, in which he also opens up about hanging with A-listers Angelina Jolie and Jude Law in the late '90s in London, when the actors were all on the brink of hitting the big time.

Brad Pitt to Star in Angelina Jolie's Next Movie - Here's What We Know

28 January 2015 7:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

According to The Wrap, Brad Pitt is gearing up to be the main man in Angelina Jolie's next movie, Africa. Actually, he's already the leading man in her next movie -- the recently filmed By the Sea (pictured above) -- so technically this is her next, next movie.  Africa is based on the real life of Richard Leakey, a Kenyan man of many hats who became a key figure in preserving his nation's history and future. He led several high-profile expeditions to recover key historical artifacts, and he even became the driving force behind a controversial, but effective, antipoacher movement wherein he hired people to shoot any elephant poachers on sight. It's this last part that appears to be the focus of the movie, as this is how Jolie described the project when it...

Brad Pitt Heads For Africa

28 January 2015 3:04 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Some people have to wait months to even try to get a script to Brad Pitt, who is offered most of the high profile projects. And then there’s Angelina Jolie, who happens to be married to him and can probably just chuck a screenplay at him across the breakfast table and see if he wants to star in it. He’s now in negotiations for her fourth film as a director, Africa.Eric Roth has written the script, based on the true story of paleoanthropologist Richard Leakey and his battle with the ivory poachers who threatened the African elephant population in the 1980s.“I’ve felt a deep connection to Africa and its culture for much of my life, and was taken with Eric’s beautiful script about a man drawn into the violent conflict with elephant poachers who emerged with a deeper understanding of man’s footprint and »

Director Angelia Jolie Gets Brad Pitt Another Big Screen Job in 'Africa'

28 January 2015 3:01 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We've already got one project coming up that will see actress turned filmmaker Angelina Jolie directing husband Brad Pitt with the relationship drama By the Sea (see the first look photos here). But it turns out they'll be working together again very soon as The Wrap reports Pitt is currently in talks to take the lead role in Africa, the new film that Jolie was announced to be directing last fall. Focusing on a subject close to her heart, the film is a biopic about Richard Leakey, a paleo-archaeologist known for battling with ivory poachers in Kenya in the 80s as hunters gravely threatened the African elephant population. More below! At least we know that if Brad Pitt should ever become undesirable by the rest of Hollywood, he'll still get acting work by starring in his wife's movies. Jolie is hoping to begin production this summer, and the film will »

Brad Pitt to Star in Angelina Jolie’s Africa

28 January 2015 2:59 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It’s not super huge news that Brad Pitt is in negotiations to star in Angelina Jolie‘s third directorial effort, Africa (the real story might be why he has to negotiate to star in his own wife’s movie). They’re both appearing together in her upcoming feature By the Sea, and it makes sense that they’d like to keep working together. But this is Brad and Angelina — Brangelina if anyone’s still calling them that — and a biopic now worth paying attention to. Not just because Jolie will again collaborate with director of photography Roger Deakins, who is currently Oscar-nominated for her second feature as director, Unbroken (but not shooting By the Sea), but because I can’t imagine Pitt playing the guy he’s playing — that’d be paleoanthropologist and conservationist Richard Leakey. The focus of Africa will be on Leakey’s work for the Kenya Wildlife Service, through »

28 January 2015 1:49 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While "Unbroken" failed to take off as an awards season machine, Angelina Jolie remains undefeated. She's already got the drama, "By The Sea," with her husband Brad Pitt, in the can, and now it looks like they'll be reteaming. The latter has joined Jolie's previously announced project, "Africa." Penned by Eric Roth ("Ali," "Munich," "The Good Shepherd"), the film is a biopic about Kenyan Richard Leakey, who came from a line of archaeologists, but turned his attentions to paleontology and most famously to anti-poaching efforts. Roger Deakins will lens the Jolie-directed movie and production aims to start this summer. [The Wrap] Matthew McConaughey is "Born To Run." The actor will star in an adaptation of Christopher McDougall's book, scripted by Matthew Michael Carnahan, about "how an award-winning journalist and often-injured runner headed for Mexico’s isolated, deadly Copper Canyons to »
