Angelina Jolie is Set To Star in a Frontier Thriller Called THE KEPT
Angelina Jolie is set to star in and produce a new film called The Kept, which is an adaptation of the novel written by James Scott. As a fan of stories that are set in the old west, I’m looking forward to this project.
The story is set in the winter of 1897 and it follows a "trio of killers who descend upon an isolated farm in upstate New York. “When midwife Elspeth Howell returns home, she discovers her husband and four of her children have been murdered. Before she can discover her remaining son Caleb, alive and hiding the kitchen pantry, another shot rings out over the snow-covered valley. Twelve-year-old Caleb must tend to his mother until she recovers enough for them to take to the frozen wilderness in search of the men responsible.”
This sounds like an intense story and there’s no doubt it will make for a great film! I haven’t been excited about an Angelina Jolie film project for a long time, but this is one that I’m definitely looking forward to!
Jolie just finished shooting Maleficent 2 for Disney and is also set to star in the film Come Away, which is a revisionist fairy tale, which is being helmed by Brave director Brenda Chapman.
