Though she is one of the most beautiful and talented actresses working today, Angelina Jolie seems more interested in working behind the scenes of late. Her directorial debut 'In The Land Of Blood And Honey' may have got lost in 2011's year-end awards shuffle, but she's locked up her next project, which isn't '50 Shades of Grey' as was once rumored.
