Hollywood's power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie is expected to arrive in Australia soon since the 49-year-old actor is currently in talks to be cast in the film "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo." If the deal with Disney succeeds, the filming will begin within months and the couple might stay at approximately four to six months Down Under.
Simon Crean, the Federal Arts Minister, will discuss the government's proposal with Disney executives to convince the upcoming Hollywood production on the blockbuster film on the shores of Australia.
"This is bigger," Crean said to ABC radio on Friday.
Information on the offer's amount is still unknown but a spokesperson of the Federal Arts Minister revealed that the proposal will most definitely be higher than the Hugh Jackman film "Wolverine" that was shot in the Australian streets of Parramatta. However, Simon Crean claimed that people should not jump to conclusions quickly such as Brad and Angelina living in Australia for months since the film production is still under the negotiation stage.
Meanwhile, the engaged couple will launch on March 15 their Miraval Wine project in the United States. It will be the first wine offered from Brad and Angie's 1,000-acre Chateau Miraval estate in Correns, France that they purchased in 2008.
"We are intimately involved and quite enthused over the wine project with our friends the Perrin family," Pitt's representative said to Bloomberg.
The label on the Miraval Wine bottle will read "Bottled by Jolie-Pitt and Perrin" where Marc Perrin, a well-respected winemaker in Europe, evenly shares the profits with the Hollywood couple.
"If you knew Brad and Angelina, you would see they are in search of perfection in everything. We talked a lot and did the first harvest together. They are very demanding in seeking excellence in the quality and character of their wine," Perrin stated.
The line on organic white and red wines is scheduled to be launched later this 2013.
