This comes after news Jolie will team up with Halle Berry in the new action-thriller Maude v Maude.
Warner Bros emerged victorious for the project after an ‘intense multi-studio bidding war’ for the project, according to Deadline.
Jolie and Berry, 53, are both set to star and produce the project.
Roseanne Liang (Shadow in the Cloud) is directing from a screenplay by Scott Mosier (Free Birds), who will both executive produce.
No plot details have been released by the project has been described as a, ‘Bond vs. Bourne type of global action thriller,’ with locations to be announced at a later date.
This will mark the first time that Jolie, who won an Oscar in 2000 for Girl Interrupted, and Berry, who won her Oscar in 2002 for Monster’s Ball, will team up on screen.
Both are well-versed in the action genre, with Jolie starring in two Tomb Raider movies, Mr. and Mrs. Smith with her ex-husband Brad Pitt and Salt.
Berry is no stranger to action either, starring as a Bond girl in 2002’s Die Another Day, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum and several of the X-Men movies.
The project first hit the market last weekend and attracted several suitors, though Warner Bros. ended up winning it, the latest star-driven package landed by new studio co-heads Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy.
While lately streaming services have been winning high-profile projects like this, Warner Bros. reportedly put in an, ‘impressive eight-figure bid you haven’t been seeing from studios as often these days,’ according to the report.
