First Photos: Pitt, Jolie In “By The Sea”

The first three photos have been released from “By the Sea,” Angelina Jolie’s third directorial effort which began production a few weeks ago in Malta. The project marks the first on screen re-teaming of Jolie with husband Brad Pitt since 2005’s “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”. EW, which published the photos, has also included a synopsis:

“Set in France during the mid-1970s, Jolie plays Vanessa, a former dancer, and Pitt is her husband Roland, an American writer. As they travel the country together, they seem to be growing apart, but when they linger in one quiet, seaside town they begin to draw close to some of its more vibrant inhabitants, such as a local bar/café-keeper (Niels Arestrup) and hotel owner (Richard Bohringer).”

Production is slated to continue through mid-November. Universal Pictures has the worldwide rights to the film which hasn’t set a release date as yet.
