Angelina Jolie will join Matt Damon in The Good Shepherd, the Robert De Niro-directed drama expected to begin production in March, reports Variety. Universal Pictures will distribute the film domestically and Morgan Creek is negotiating to handle foreign territories.
The movie is an Eric Roth-scripted history of the CIA as seen through the eyes of a career agent whose marriage is destroyed by the stress and difficulties of the job. Jolie has been tapped to play the wife.
Tribeca partners De Niro and Jane Rosenthal are producing, with Francis Ford Coppola, Rick Schwartz and Chris Brigham executive producing.
A few weeks into the program and producers are taking the bait. The Mayor's Office of Film says a half-dozen productions have committed to relocate here, including Mel Brooks' "The Producers" and Martin Scorsese's "The Departed," which will shoot in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, with megastars Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon.</font>

“It’s only when we come off the set that our differences show and I don’t always want to stick around to find out what those are,” she grins, as she adjusts her beret and prepares to leave. “Sometimes, it’s better not to know.”
