The thriller will follow a teenage murder witness who is pursued by assassins in the Montana wilderness, only to face down a deadly forest fire. 

The film is one of well over a dozen titles from Warner Brothers that will be released in both theaters as well as on HBO Max this year, in the studio’s plan to minimize financial fallout due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and prolonged theatrical closures that it has caused.

The first title to drop in this simultaneous format was Wonder Woman 1984, which bowed on Christmas Day.

That film enjoyed massive exposure and generated record subscriptions as well as views for the platform, as many viewers were still at home due to lockdown and social distancing.

And while Warner Bros. is pushing forward with the plan, certain filmmakers are none too happy about it, including Denis Villeneuve.

Villeneuve directed the sci-fi epic Dune, starring Timothee Chalamet and Zendaya, which is due out on October 1st.

Angelina’s upcoming screen time is admirable amid the pandemic being that she has been busy raising her six ‘resilient’ children.

In a recent interview with Vogue, while also gracing the magazine’s cover, Jolie admitted she doesn’t view herself as ‘a traditional stay-at-home mum’ as she was ‘was never very good at sitting still’, but credited her six kids for ‘helping’ her motherhood journey.

Angelina co-parents Maddox, 19, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 14, and 12-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox with ex and fellow A-list star Brad Pitt.

Discussing juggling her parental duties with work, the Changeling actress stated that she ‘was never very good at sitting still.’

‘Even though I wanted to have many children and be a mom, I always imagined it kind of like Jane Goodall, travelling in the middle of the jungle somewhere. I didn’t imagine it in that true, traditional sense. 

‘I feel like I’m lacking in all the skills to be a traditional stay-at-home mom,’ she humbly admitted.

‘I’m managing through it because the children are quite resilient, and they’re helping me, but I’m not good at it at all.’

Jolie has been single ever since she separated from Pitt in September 2016, following two years of marriage and a well documented 12-year relationship.
