Billy Bob Thornton making a new movie about Angelina Jolie




Billy Bob Thornton and his off-center soul patch were at the Berlin Film Festival to shill his movie Jayne Mansfield's Car, but it's his next project that has people interested. And Then We Drove, which was co-written by the actor and director, is about his marriage to Angelina JolieBrad Pitt will probably be first in line for a ticket, we're sure.

Thornton told Variety the next movie is about "a guy who's on a road trip and picks up this girl along the way, and what happens to them. It's about the question of life: 'What is this? Where do I fit in?'" His producer, AR Films' Alexander Rodnyansky, says the story is partly inspired by Billy Bob's time with Jolie; the couple were married for just more than two years and divorced in 2002, right after she adopted son Maddox.

The movie should be shooting on location across L.A., New Mexico, Arizona and the South. There's no word on a Florida location as of yet, but we've had a pretty good track record with movies lately. Maybe they can come up with a scene or two. Maybe the part where she gets his name tattooed on his arm -- that'd fit in around here.
