Angelina Jolie Takes on Maria Callas in ‘Maria’ Biopic
Angelina Jolie is stepping into the shoes of the legendary Greek opera sensation, Maria Callas, in an upcoming movie called ‘Maria,’ directed by Pablo Larraín. It’s quite the buzz in Tinseltown! This film promises to take us on a journey through the life of a real diva and offers a fresh look at her final days in the glamorous world of 1970s Paris.
It’s clear that Angelina Jolie is passionate about this role. She’s all in to honor the life and career of Maria Callas, and that’s pretty special. The script for ‘Maria’ is written by Steven Knight, the guy who brought us ‘Spencer’ and ‘Peaky Blinders.’ This movie is shaping up to be something truly special, just like Larraín’s previous films, ‘Jackie’ and ‘Spencer.’
‘Maria’ is all about keeping it real. They’re using actual costumes from Maria Callas’ own wardrobe, and that’s a neat touch. It’ll capture her style and elegance perfectly. And wait until you hear about the cast – it’s a star-studded lineup with Kodi Smit-McPhee, Pierfrancesco Favino, Alba Rohrwacher, Haluk Bilginer, and Valeria Golino.
While ‘Maria’ is an independent film, it’s got some support from SAG-AFTRA. Juan de Dios Larraín, Jonas Dornbach, and Lorenzo Mieli are the folks behind the scenes making it happen. And Angelina Jolie, she’s in it for the long haul, with a three-year deal with the production company. That shows she’s really committed to telling Maria Callas’ incredible story.
FilmNation Entertainment will be bringing ‘Maria’ to audiences all around the world. It’s a chance to get a unique look into the life and legacy of the world’s greatest opera singer through the eyes of Jolie and Larraín. This collaboration promises a gripping and emotionally charged cinematic experience.
As they start shooting ‘Maria’ this week, fans of Angelina Jolie and opera lovers have something to look forward to. This movie is all about paying tribute to the diva’s life in a real and captivating way. Keep an eye out for more updates on this exciting project as it unfolds and be sure to mark your calendars for what’s bound to be a must-see when it hits theaters.
