Angelina Jolie has come on board to star in the chase thriller Those Who Wish Me Dead with Taylor Sheridan directing from his own script.
Bron Studios and Film Rites are producing and Creative Wealth Media is financing. Sheridan is adapting the script from Michael Koryta’s 2014 novel of the same name, which follows a 14-year-old boy who witnesses a brutal murder, is issued a false identity and hidden in a wilderness skills program for troubled teens while the killers are slaughtering anyone who gets in their way in a methodical quest to reach him.
Plot details and Jolie’s character are under wraps. The story is set against a wildfire in the Montana wilderness.
Producers are Garrett Basch and Steve Zaillian of Film Rites and Bron Studios’ Aaron L. Gilbert. Creative Wealth Media’s Jason Cloth is the executive producer. Jolie is repped by United Talent Agency (UTA), and Sheridan is repped by Creative Artists Agency (CAA) and Elevate Entertainment.
Notably, Jolie was last seen in By the Sea, which she also directed. She’s also starring in Maleficent II, which is set to release in May 29, 2020.
