Maddox Jolie-Pitt lands first film role

London: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie`s eldest child Maddox has reportedly landed his first movie.

The 10-year-old adopted son of the couple is set to take the lead role in `Battling Boy`, a movie based on a graphic novel that is being produced by the actor`s Plan B company, reported Daily Star online.

"The film is based on a graphic novel about the young son of a god who leaves his mountain-top home to fight monsters.

"It`s being produced by Brad`s Plan B production company. Maddox lives, eats and breathes movies and comic books, so Brad and Angelina thought he would be perfect for the starring role," a source said.

Jolie has previously praised Maddox - the eldest of the six children as a "real intellectual".

"Maddox is a real intellectual, which I can take no credit for genetically. He`s great at school, great at history. He feels like he could be a writer or travel the world and learn about places and things," Jolie said.
