The 15-year-old will be assisting the actress in a stage musical adaptation of S. E. Hinton’s novel.
Angelina Jolie’s daughter, Vivienne, will take part in the production of the Broadway musical “The Outsiders”.
It was announced last week that the Oscar-winning actress would direct a musical stage adaptation of Francis Ford Coppola’s 1983 novel and crime drama by S. E. Hinton.
“Viv reminds me of my mom because she’s not focused on being in the spotlight but on supporting other creative people,” Jolie said in a statement obtained by People. “She is very thoughtful and serious about theater and works hard to figure out how best to contribute.”
The mother-daughter couple attended the world premiere of the musical at La Jolla Playhouse in California earlier this year and later met the author, who wrote the 1967 novel while in high school.
“I hope I can do my part by continuing to learn from this amazing team that I have been working with since my daughter took me to see a play at La Jolla Playhouse,” the 48-year-old actor said.
“I can’t express how excited I am for this musical’s Broadway debut, and I can’t wait to share this new adaptation of The Outsiders with the world.”
Jolie had twins Vivienne and Knox and a 17-year-old daughter, Shiloh, with ex-husband Brad Pitt. He also has three adopted children: Maddox, 22, Pax, 19, and Zahara, 18.
