THE ETERNALS Finds Its Leading Lady In MALEFICENT Star Angelina Jolie

Here's a hot scoop to get you through hump day, as it's being reported that Academy Award-winner Angelina Jolie has signed on to star in Marvel Studios' The Eternals, which has Chloe Zhao set to direct.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Academy Award-winner Angelina Jolie has signed on to star in Marvel Studios' The Eternals. However, details on her leading role are being kept under heavy lock-and-key for now. 

Plot details remain scarce, but THR's report confirms that a major aspect of the film will revolve around the love story between Ikaris, a man fueled by cosmic energy, and Sersi, who relishes moving amongst the humans. While Jolie's role hasn't been confirmed, the fact that she's been cast as the female lead would seem to suggest she may be playing Sersi. 

Chloe Zhao (The Rider; Songs My Brothers Taught Me) is directing the superhero feature, which is based on the Jack Kirby-created comic series, with a script from the writing duo of Matthew and Ryan Firpo (Ruin; Mimi From Rio). 

Jolie recently wrapped Joachim Rønning's Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, which will open in theaters this October, and will then also star in Thea Sharrock's animation/live-action hybrid The One and Only Ivan and Brenda Chapman's Come Away before suiting up in The Eternals.
