Ian Halperin is planning to make documentary about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s marriage, TheWrap has learned.
According to The Sun, one of the biggest bombshells in the documentary will be that the famous couple had been estranged for more than a year before they announced their divorce in September.
Halperin retweeted The Sun’s story on Thursday and told TheWrap that the report that he is working on the documentary is accurate. Pitt’s representative declined to comment, while Jolie’s representatives have not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
The Canadian investigative journalist and filmmaker has written several exposes about celebrities, including “Unmasked: The Final Years of Michael Jackson” and “Celine Dion: Behind the Fairytale.” He also directed and produced a documentary about Jackson in 2010 titled “Gone Too Soon.”
Jolie and Pitt reached an agreement in their divorce case in November, two months after announcing their split. Jolie will continue to have sole custody of the six children with Pitt in a joint agreement reached by the actors, according to her representative.
Maddox Jolie-Pitt, 15, Pax Jolie-Pitt, 12, Zahara Jolie-Pitt, 11, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, 10, and twins Knox Jolie-Pitt and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, 8, will have “therapeutic visits” with their famous father.
The “Unbroken” director cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce, and claimed Pitt had been involved in a disturbance with the children while on a private plane, which was then investigated by the FBI. He was eventually cleared of the allegations.
The couple met on the set of 2004’s “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” and fell in love, while the “Allied” actor was married to Jennifer Aniston. In 2006, Jolie confirmed she was pregnant with Pitt’s child.
