Pitt and Jolie heading for Cannes


MUMBAI: Actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will be heading to Cannes next month to present their film A Mighty Heart, when the annual fest kicks off on 16 May 2007, according to www.Hollywood.tv founder Sheeraz Hasan.

In the movie, produced by Pitt’s Plan B Company, Jolie plays Mariane Pearl, the widow of slain Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl.

“The story unfolds like a mystery,” Jolie says. “You’ve got people collecting clues and trying to solve what happened. But it’s also very real and personal. We didn’t want it to be too melodramatic or too polished. We didn’t want it to be a typical movie.”

Meanwhile, Pitt will also be on hand for the world premiere screening of Ocean’s 13, and is expected to be joined in Cannes by George Clooney, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle as well as the rest of the cast, says Hasan.
