Angelina Jolie is teaming up with her 15-year-old daughter Vivienne to adapt the iconic 1983 film ‘The Outsiders’ by Francis Ford Coppola into a Broadway show. Based on the novel by S.E. Hinton, the story is set to be brought to life on stage, and the mother-daughter duo are working together.
The Hollywood star revealed that Vivienne will be her volunteer assistant, and shared her excitement to be involved in the project, showing her daughter the creative process, and giving her an introduction to the entertainment industry.
Angelina also explained that Vivienne reminds her of her mom Marcheline Bertrand.
“Viv reminds me of my mother in that she isn’t focused on being the center of attention but in being a support to other creatives,” she said in the statement. “She’s very thoughtful and serious about theatre and working hard to best understand how to contribute.”
It was also reported that the pair watched the world premiere of ‘The Outsiders’ at La Jolla Playhouse in California this year, and went on to meet with the writer of the novel.
