Angelina Jolie to play own mum in new biopic London: Angelina Jolie, who recently got a double mastectomy and wants to get her ovaries removed next, is all set to portray the role of her own mother, Marcheline Bertrand , who died of ovarian cancer in 2007, in a new biopic.

The biopic celebrating Bertrand`s life will go into production in 2014 under Brad Pitt`s company `Plan B`, the Daily Express reported.

The `Salt` star`s mother was involved in humanitarian work herself and helped women Afghan refugees.

She also launched the Give Love Give Life organisation to help fight gynaecological cancers.

The 37-year-old actress is still haunted by her mum`s suffering and untimely death at just 56.

The Oscar-winning mother-of-six described Bertrand as "grace incarnate".

Jolie recently said that she feels blessed that her mum was around to see both her brother and her in a nice place.

She added that the late actress waited till everyone was OK and then she closed her eyes.
