Angelina Jolie COURTESY OF GETTY
Following last week's news that Angelina Jolie underwent a preventative double mastectomy to drastically lower her likelihood of developing breast cancer, Brit tabloid The Daily Mail has reported that Jolie will play her mother actress and charity founder Marcheline Bertrand, in a biopic based on her life. Bertrand died in 2007 at age 56 to cancer, and Jolie sites the traumatic loss of her mother as a reason behind her recent medical procedure. 

No further details on the project at the moment, but if true, The Mail reports that it could go into production in 2014.

In the upcoming pipeline, Jolie has Disney's "Maleficent" in 2014, in which she plays the title role of the nefarious evil witch originated in 1959's animated "Sleeping Beauty." In costume and makeup, Jolie is a ringer for the part

"Salt 2" has been announced, in which Jolie also plays the eponymous lead, and a "Kung Fu Panda 3" is in the works, with Jolie voicing the slinky feline character Tigress.

In 2012, Jolie's directorial debut "In the Land of Blood and Honey" was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Foreign-Language Film.
