Los Angeles - Brad Pitt is in negotiations to star in Angelina Jolie's next movie.

The 51-year-old actor has recently completed work on By the Sea, his 39-year-old wife's third directorial effort, and is now looking to land a part in her fourth film Africa, The Wrap reports.

Africa is a true story about paleoanthropologist Richard Leakey and his battle with the ivory poachers who threatened the African elephant population in the 1980s and Angelina who raises six children with Brad - is working from a script written by Eric Roth.

The brunette beauty has previously said: "I've felt a deep connection to Africa and its culture for much of my life, and was taken with Eric's beautiful script about a man drawn into the violent conflict with elephant poachers who emerged with a deeper understanding of man's footprint and a profound sense of responsibility for the world around him."

Angelina, who met Brad on the set of their 2005 movie Mr and Mrs Smith previously said working with her spouse on By the Sea brought them "closer".

She added: "Sharing something in a deep artistic way, it's something I think is necessary for artistic couples. I hadn't realised how good it would be for us."
