Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie’s son Maddox lands first movie role

Will you go and see ‘Battling Boy’?

He may be only 10 years old, but Maddox Jolie-Pitt is ready to follow in his famous parents footsteps and become an actor.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s adopted son is reportedly set to take on the lead role in the film ‘Battling Boy’.  The film is based on a graphic novel and will be produced by Brad Pitt’s production company ‘Plan B’.

A source spoke out about the film and Maddox’s love for comic books;

“(The) film is based on a graphic novel about the young son of a god who leaves his mountain-top home to fight monsters. Maddox lives, eats and breathes movies and comic books, so Brad and Angelina thought he would be perfect for the starring role. It’s being produced by Brad’s Plan B production company.”

Angelina has praised her son in the past for being a smart cookie, saying;

“Maddox is a real intellectual, which I can take no credit for genetically. He’s great at school, great at history.  He feels like he could be a writer or travel the world and learn about places and things.”

Even though Jolie has always been an actress that will push the limits in her film roles, she’s admitted that since having children she feels drawn to doing more action films.  She explains;

“The funny thing about having children is that now I am twice as motivated to do a cool stunt because my kids will like it.  I’m very responsible these days not to be self-destructive because of my kids, but at the same time I have all the more reason to do all the cool things possible because I want to try and make my kids proud.”

Looking forward to the film, Maddox!
