“I am very happy to continue my relationship with [Universal Pictures chairman] Donna [Langley] and the entire Universal team as I finish 'Unbroken' and begin work on 'By The Sea.' They have created a very special place for storytellers, and I look forward to the continued passion and support they have provided to me as a filmmaker," Angelina said in a statement on Friday.

Angelina is currently finishing up “Unbroken,” a drama centered around Olympic athlete/war hero Louis Zamperini, which Universal will release on Christmas Day. Zamperini passed away earlier this month at the age of 97.
