Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s eldest child Maddox turns 14 next week and he already has a job working alongside his superstar mum on a Netflix original film.
The mum-of-six will direct First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers, based on the book written by Loung Ung.
Aside from directing, Angelina also helped write the script and revealed in an interview with The Associated Press that her son will be playing an important role behind the camera.
“Maddox will be on set every day after school and involved behind the scenes, as Maddox and I prepare the film we will be side by side learning about his country,” the 40-year-old explained.
The eldest Jolie-Pitt child was born in Cambodia and adopted by Angie 12 years ago, which means this project has extra special significance to the family as it depicts the deadly Khmer Rouge regime that devastated the tiny nation.
“He [Maddox] is turning 14 next week and this is a very important time for him to understand who he is. He is my son but he is also a son of Cambodia,” the humanitarian penned to AP.
She added: “This is the time for our family to understand all that that means to him and to us. My desire to tell this story in the most truthful and accurate way possible will be my tribute to the strength and dignity of all Cambodian people.”
Despite only being a teenager, Maddox already has an impressive CV after working as a production assistant on his mum’s upcoming film By The Sea.
People reported that Angelina is already in Cambodia for pre-production and to check up on the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation, which was launched after the doting mum adopted her eldest child.
Talk about a total powerhouse team! We can't wait to see the end result of the pair's collaboration.
