Angelina Jolie To “Shoot Like A Girl”

Angelina Jolie is in early negotiations to star in the Afghanistan war drama “Shoot Like a Girl” for TriStar Films and Gotham Group.

Based on the upcoming memoir “Shoot Like a Girl: One Woman’s Dramatic Fight in Afghanistan and on the Home Front,” the true story tale follows Major Mary Jennings Hagar who served multiple tours in Afghanistan as a helicopter pilot.

She saved hundreds of men and women on and off the battlefield in the Middle East and later helped eliminate the military’s Ground Combat Exclusion Policy which kept female officers from serving in combat roles.

Frank Baldwin wrote the script with the project being fast tracked.
