Angelina Jolie Lands Her First New Acting Role Following Eternals As She Returns To Making Movies

The last time Angelina Jolie graced the big screen, she played the powerful Thena in the 2021 Marvel movie Eternals. Following her first time in the superhero realm, the iconic actress and Oscar winner will star in a drama called Maria, where she’ll embody the late Maria Callas, a famed opera singer.

The movie will come from director Pablo Larraín, who was previously behind Kristen Stewart’s critically-acclaimed role as Princess Diana in Spencer and Natalie Portman’s memorable portrayal of first lady Jackie Kennedy in Jackie. As the news of Jolie’s upcoming role was announced, the actress said this to Variety:

I take very seriously the responsibility to Maria’s life and legacy. I will give all I can to meet the challenge. Pablo Larraín is a director I have long admired. To be allowed the chance to tell more of Maria’s story with him, and with a script by Steven Knight, is a dream.
