Brad Pitt ‘Openly Emotional’ As He Shoots New Film ‘Allied’ in the U.K.

While rumors continue to swirl about the impending doom of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Pitt’s marriage, Brad has been braving the inclement weather of the U.K. to film his latest epic movie, a World War II romance drama Allied.

While Brad was seen to be openly crying recently, this had nothing to do with the many rumors that he and Angelina Jolie-Pitt are splitting up. He was merely getting well into his new role on the film.

As part of Brad and Angelina’s stay in London, U.K. Pitt has been busy with a new project based on a true story and set in World War II. In the process he has quickly discovered just how bad the weather can be in the Pitt-Jolie family’s new home base.

With Brad’s background in movies depicting the horrors of the twentieth century, he is obviously well-prepared for the new emotion-packed WWII film Allied, which was previously referred to as Five Seconds of Silence.

Struggling in the wind, rain and snow of England’s “spring,” reportedly Pitt – in the role of a French-Canadian spy – was seen in tears as he filmed emotional scenes with one of his co-stars, Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex, Mean Girls, Cloverfield), recently in southern England.

The Daily Mail has a series of photos taken on the set in the last few days, showing our hero crawling over to his co-star Caplan next to a fighter jet. Wearing a grey trench coat, Pitt, 52, is clearly crying as he leans over Caplan, 33, wrapping her in his jacket while she lay motionless on the ground.

While the rain poured down, the star of World War Z reportedly played his character part well for the camera, while in between takes toweling off to get dry. On Lizzy’s side, she reportedly didn’t complain, even while having to lie on the soggy and muddy ground.

According to the report, Pitt and Caplan are playing the roles of siblings in the historic thriller which is set in 1942. The film is reportedly based on a true story and tells the tale of Pitt’s character, Max Vatan, who falls in love with a French agent Marianne Beausejour (played by Marion Cotillard) while on a mission to kill a German ambassador in Casablanca.

As reported by Uinterview, in the story the couple eventually marry and start a family. However, Brad’s character, Max, soon finds out that his new wife is quite possibly a Nazi spy. Brad Pitt’s character then starts his own investigation into his wife.

The photo below was taken during filming on what appears to be a better weather day earlier in April during a loving family scene.

The film Allied is being directed by Robert Zemeckis (Back To The Future, Flight, Castaway) and the original script was penned by Steven Knight (Eastern Promises).

With Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard in the lead roles in Allied with the sibling character Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex), the film also stars Matthew Goode (Downton Abbey) and Jared Harris (Lincoln, Mad Men) and is said to be opening in theaters on November 23 of this year.
