Brad Pitt has, allegedly, been meeting up with his estranged son, Maddox Jolie-Pitt, secretly.
According to New Idea, Maddox Jolie-Pitt and his dad’s relationship improved in recent months. And there’s even a possibility that the eldest adopted child of Pitt and Angelina Jolie will star in a movie. However, no concrete pieces of evidence can confirm that these hearsays are correct as of this writing.
Brad Pitt, Maddox Jolie-Pitt in secret talks about a movie project?
But an unnamed source insisted that Pitt and Maddox have been talking about the creative direction of Battling Boy. The sci-fi comic used to be Maddox’s favorite book as a kid.
“Brad bought the movie rights as a gift to Maddox when he was eight years old, but had to shelve the project for more money-making movies after they bought the Miraval estate. But now he’s commissioned a team of scriptwriters and is including Maddox in every step of the process. It’s brought them so much closer together and he’s found a creative partner in Maddox he used to have with Angelina,” the unnamed source said, as per New Idea.
Maddox Jolie-Pitt to play the lead in ‘Battling Boy?’
The source also said that Pitt is encouraging his son to play the lead role in the movie. However, some people in Hollywood are, allegedly, concerned about whether Maddox will still fit the bill.
After all, the lead character in Battling Boy is a teenager. Maddox is still technically a teenager at 18, but he, reportedly, matured in the last two years.
“But Brad’s determined to make Maddox’s boyhood dream come true – and make a really great movie in the process,” the source said.
However, one should take the claims made by the tabloid with a grain of salt. Us Weekly recently revealed that Pitt is still able to visit his children at Jolie’s place during the pandemic.
But since Maddox is no longer a minor, he has decided not to see his dad. A source told the publication that a relationship between Pitt and Maddox is non-existent.
As of late, there hasn’t been any word regarding Battling Boy. And if the movie pushes through, it is unlikely for Maddox to take on the lead role. The 18-year-old is not an actor.
Prior to the coronavirus pandemic, Maddox has been studying in South Korea. And once the pandemic is over and he could go back to school, he will most likely return to the country to complete his degree.
Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie rumors
The tabloid’s headline is also misleading, “Ange’s fury: Brad and Maddox’s secret meeting,” it read. However, there was no mention of Jolie’s alleged fury anywhere else in the article.
It also unlikely for Pitt and Maddox to meet secretly and without Jolie’s knowledge. After all, the teenager still lives with his mom.
