Apart from starring in the Maleficent franchise, Jolie has been largely absent from the screen since 2010. ‘Those Who Wish Me Dead’ marks the Oscar-winner's much-anticipated return to her action-thriller roots

Screenwriter and director Taylor Sheridan has in recent years made a name for himself by blending noir with western tropes and delivering critically acclaimed thrillers 'Sicario,’ ‘Hell or Hugh Water’ and ‘Wind River.’

Now, Sheridan is teaming up with Angelia Jolie, a star who has her roots in action-thrillers, for his second directorial effort ‘Those Who Wish me Dead,’ based on a novel of the same name by Michael Kortya.

Jolie stars as a wildland firefighter who is haunted by her failure to save three lives. Her last shot at redemption comes when she has to save a twelve-year-old boy, running away from two assassins, played by Nicholas Hoult and Aidan Gillan, through a wildfire spreading across Montana wilderness.
