13 Jun – After working together in the Marvel superhero movie, "Eternals", Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek will be reuniting in an upcoming film.

It is also the first project in Jolie's three-year agreement with Freemantle.

"Without Blood" is based on Italian author Alessandro Baricco's best-selling novel of the same name and will touch on "universal truths about war, trauma, memory and healing".

"I'm honoured to be here in Italy to bring this very special material to film, and to have been entrusted by Alessandro Baricco with the adaptation of his book - with its unique poetry and emotion and way of looking at war, and the questions it poses about what we search for after trauma or loss or injustice," Jolie said.
