According to the Daily Mail, Jolie wants to play the role of her mother Marcheline Bertrand in a biopic which will be produced through the company owned by her life partner Brad Pitt, in 2014.
Angelina Jolie, who continued her mother’s efforts in charity, revealed last week in the New York Times that she had a double mastectomy after learning that she was a carrier of a gene that increases by 87% the risk of developing breast cancer.
“My mother fought cancer and died at 56. She held out long enough to meet the first of her grandchildren and to hold them in her arms. But my other children will never have the chance to know her and experience how loving and gracious she was,” the actress wrote.
Marcheline Bertrand was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1999, the year Angelina appeared in Girl, Interrupted, in the role that earned her an Oscar.
