Angelina Jolie has joined the wilderness thriller Those Who Wish Me Dead. 

Jolie has been tapped to star in forthcoming drama directed and written by Taylor Sheridan.

Sheridan has adapted the script from the Michael Koryta 2014 bestselling novel. The novel follows a young boy, witness to a murder, who is issued a new identity and is hidden in a wilderness skills program for troubled teens.

According to Deadline Sheridan used the novel as a jumping-off point, and all that is known of the plot is that the story is set against a wildfire in the Montana wilderness. Details of Jolie’s character are also under wraps. 

Primary filming of Those Who Wish Me Dead is set to being this May.
