Angelina Jolie plans to star in "a few more" movies.
The 39-year-old star, who previously revealed she wants to focus on directing and her humanitarian work in the future, says she isn't ready to retire from the big screen just yet.
Discussing her future acting plans, she said: "I'll do a few more."
But she told Variety magazine that her heart still lies behind the camera, saying: "I'm happier when I get to put a camera on another actor and watch them do great work."
Despite being very passionate about directing, Angelia wasn't instantly handed the job on her new movie, 'Unbroken,' even though Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley was a fan of her 2011 directorial debut 'The Land of Blood and Honey'.
Langley said: "I've seen almost every film about that conflict, and I thought her film was the most impactful and clearest about what people were living through during that time. The movie follows the story of a woman caught in difficult circumstances, who has to persevere; that's very synonymous with Louis Zamperini's story [in 'Unbroken']."
But she added: "She had to work for it. I put her through her paces."
The brunette beauty created a picture board representing her vision for scenes and characters in the project in a bid to secure the opportunity.
Langley said: "After a few conversations, it became very clear that she was ready to step up to the task."
