Brad Pitt has reportedly handed Angelina Jolie a film role originally meant for his ex Jennifer Aniston.
Angelina will star as the wife of murdered American journalist Daniel Pearl in A Mighty Heart.
Brad is producing the movie with Angelina in the lead, even though he and Jen originally planned to make it with their own production company, Plan B.
According to The Sun a source close to Jen said: "She's horrified that Brad has handed the role meant for her to Angelina.
"It was Jen who persuaded Daniel Pearl's wife to sell them the movie rights.
"She hoped it would win her an Oscar. It is heartless, but the bottom line is Brad got ownership of Plan B in their divorce settlement, so he can do what he likes."
Daniel was kidnapped and beheaded by militants in Pakistan.
The movie will be based on Marianne's book A Mighty Heart: The Brave Life And Death Of My Husband Danny Pearl.
Filming is set to begin within weeks.
