Angelina Jolie To Play Opera Singer Maria Callas, I Will Give All I Can To Meet The Challenge

For the upcoming film Maria, Angelina Jolie will collaborate with Pablo Larran, the director of Spencer and Jackie. It was revealed on Friday that Jolie, 47, will play Maria Callas, a Greek opera soprano who was born in America, in director Pablo Larran’s upcoming movie Maria. According to a press release,

the upcoming film will be based on real events and portray the turbulent, beautiful, and tragic narrative of the world’s finest opera singer, relived and remade during her final days in 1970s Paris. The next film’s screenplay was written by Steven Knight, who also penned Larran’s 2021 film Spencer,which starred Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana. I take my duty to preserve Maria’s memory and legacy extremely seriously. Jolie declared, I’ll do everything I can to rise to the occasion.

It has been a long-held goal of mine to be able to combine my two greatest and most intimate hobbies, opera and cinema, said Larran. It’s fantastic to get the chance to work with Angelina, a supremely courageous and inquisitive artist. The American-Greek opera singer Callas,whose vocal range extended over three octaves, passed away in Paris at the age of 53 from a heart attack in 1977, reported The Guardian. Natalie Portman, who played Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in the 2016 film Jackie directed by Larran, received an Oscar nomination for Best Actress;

Stewart received a mention for Spencer at the 2017 Academy Awards. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Callas’ relationship with Aristotle Onassis, whom Kennedy married in October 1968, nearly five years after President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, makes her life particularly connected to the subject of Jackie.

Swedish actress Noomi Rapace, who starred in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, was earlier chosen to play the opera singer in the Mulan filmmaker Niki Caro’s 2015 film Callas.
