Angelina Jolie to Play Maria Callas in New Biopic from Pablo Larraín

Following his Princess Diana biopic ‘Spencer,’ Larrain has found his next subject in the famed opera singer. Angelina Jolie is set to play soprano Maria Callas in the newly-announced biopic from Pablo Larrain.
Maria, based on true accounts, will tell the tumultuous, beautiful and tragic story of the life of the world’s greatest opera singer, relived and reimagined during her final days in 1970s Paris.
Written by Steven Knight (Spencer, Peaky Blinders, Eastern Promises) the feature is produced by Juan de Dios Larra’in for Fabula Pictures; Lorenzo Mieli for The Apartment Pictures, a Fremantle Company; and Jonas Dornbach for Komlizen Film.


“I take very seriously the responsibility to Maria’s life and legacy. I will give all I can to meet the challenge,” said Jolie. “Pablo Larra’in 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.”
Added Larrain, who comes off the back of his Princess Diana biopic Spencer: “Having the chance to combine my two most deep and personal passions, cinema and opera, has been a long-awaited dream. To do this with Angelina, a supremely brave and curious artist, is a fascinating opportunity. A true gift.”
Angelina Jolie is repped by WME and attorneys Robert Offer and Lindsey Strasberg at Sloane, Offer, Weber and Dern.
More to come.
