[Movies] First Image From Angelina Jolie's Unbroken Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 10.10.2013
Based on a true story...
Here is a first-look image from Universal for Unbroken. The film is directed and produced by Angelina Jolie and follows the life of Louis "Louie" Zamperini; the film is adapted from Laura Hillenbrand's Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption.
Jolie and Zamperini are neighbors in real life and have become close friends over the course of the film's development. The picture is of Jolie and Zamperini, which you can see below.
Jack O'Connell will star as Zamperini, a former Olympic track star who survived a plane crash in the Pacific theater, spent 47 days drifting on a raft and then more than two and a half years as a prisoner of war in several brutal Japanese internment camps.
Jolie said of the film, "It will be hard to make a film worthy of this great man. I am deeply honored to have the chance and will do all I can to bring Louie's inspiring story to life. Everyone involved in the film shares this deep responsibility. Like all readers of Laura's book and all people who love and admire Louie, I am a fan who has learned so much. He has made me a better person."
