Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie might be slowly brining each of her children into the career that made her famous. After her daughter, Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, had a cameo in Disney’s “Sleeping Beauty” reboot, where Jolie played the evil vileness Maleficent, her oldest son, Maddox, may join her in the Netflix movie “First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers ,” People magazine confirmed in an exclusive report.
The movie is based off the memoir by Cambodian author, Loung Ung. Jolie, 40, will direct, produce and co-write the film adaptation. Her oldest son, Maddox, 13, was born in Cambodia. As of now, it has not been confirmed that he will appear in the film.
Jolie was inspired to take on the project because of the way Ung portrayed how children view war. “It deepened forever my understanding of how children experience war and are affected by the emotional memory of it. And it helped me draw closer still to the people of Cambodia, my son’s homeland," she said. "I was deeply affected by Loung’s book.”
“First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers,” might not be Jolie’s only project. Rumors circled that a sequel to “Maleficent” was in the works. It wouldn’t be too much of a stretch if she agreed to do a second since she once said she “loved” the character.
"I was quite sad to put my staff down and put my horns away because somehow, she just lives in a different world," she told Entertainment Weekly in March 2014. "But I did have to take my staff home to practice walking with it in my cloak, and then I would go outside and scream at the bushes to expand my voice and play with my voice. So, Mom was a bit nutso for a period." Even husband Brad Pitt liked Maleficent, too: “He thinks she’s cool,” the brunette beauty added.
