Former Hollywood couple Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton are going to be reunited once again, at least that is what they are said to be planning on for their next big screen project. The ex-lovers reportedly are looking for a comedy movie in which they can share the screen like what they have done in 1999 with "Pushing Tin".
The rumor of Jolie and Thornton's second collaboration on another feature film has allegedly been sparked by the 52-year-old actor himself. Speaking to Maxim magazine, the Academy Award-winning screenwriter for "Sling Blade" gushed, "We've talked about it plenty of times. I'm sure we will. We want to be really careful that we pick the right one. Maybe a comedy."
Though noting that they are both keen on working together again for a movie, Thornton insisted that they are not looking for a script that will pair them up as a couple. He noted, "In other words, we wouldn't want to do another movie about a husband-wife relationship. That probably wouldn't be very good."
"Pushing Tin" is a 1999 drama film for which Jolie and Thornton acted as husband and wife. Telling the story of the air traffic controllers working at New York TRACON, the movie follows the feud between Nick "The Zone" Falzone, the undisputed king of pushing tin, and Russell Bell, a new transfer. Directed by Mike Newell, it also stars John Cusack and Cate Blanchett.
