Angelina Jolie, David Oyelowo set to star in fantasy drama ‘Come Away’

Washington: Angelina Jolie is all set to star alongside ‘A Wrinkle In Time’ actor David Oyelowo in a fantasy drama ‘Come Away’.

The film is imagined as a prequel to the classics ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and ‘Peter Pan’, reports Deadline.

It will be helmed by Brenda Chapman, who won an Oscar for her work on Pixar’s ‘Brave’.
“Angelina and David are going to bring a beautiful chemistry and depth to this magical story, giving audiences a wonderful step outside the expected,” Chapman said.

Screenwriter Marissa Kate Goodhill said, “Brenda is a singular storyteller. Her decades of experience in creating rich fantasy worlds populated by complex characters make her a dream director for this project, which explores how fantasy functions as a way to cope with reality. Her thoughtful approach to filmmaking and indomitable talent make her the perfect person to bring this story to life.”
‘Come Away’ is set to be shot in the U.K. and Los Angeles.
