    Angelina Jolie To Helm Netflix Original Pic ‘First They Killed My Father’

    The Oscar winner will be helming her next project for the streaming service for a late 2016 release. Angelina Jolie Pitt will co-write and direct an  adaptation of Cambodian author and human rights activist Loung Ung’s 2000 memoir First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers. The
    actress and Unbroken director has been working on the adaptation for
    several years since reading it and reaching out to Ung over 10-years
    ago.

    “I was deeply affected by Loung’s book,” said Jolie Pitt, who will
    also produce the feature.  “It deepened forever my understanding of how
    children experience war and are affected by the emotional memory of it.
    And it helped me draw closer still to the people of Cambodia, my son’s
    homeland.” Jolie Pitt’s Camodian born son Maddox will be involved in the
    film. Rithy Panh, director of the Oscar-nominated Best Foreign Language
    film The Missing Picture, will serve as a producer.

    “Films like this are hard to watch but important to see,” added
    Jolie Pitt today praising the streaming service.. “They are also hard to
    get made. Netflix
    is making this possible, and I am looking forward to working with them
    and excited that the film will reach so many people.” Set to be released
    in both Khmer and English, Netflix say First They Killed My Father will be submitted to major film festivals around the world.
