Jolie inspires Thornton movie?

Billy Bob Thornton is apparently making a movie partly inspired by his relationship with Angelina Jolie.

The 56-year-old star - who was married to the Hollywood beauty for two years - will co-write and direct road movie And Then We Drove, reports Variety.

Producer Alexander Rodnyansky has reportedly confirmed that the film is partly inspired by Billy Bob's well-documented relationship with Angelina.

Actor and filmmaker Billy Bob has said the flick is about "a guy who's on a road trip and picks up this girl along the way, and what happens to them. It's about the question of life, 'What is this? Where do I fit in?'"

Billy Bob and Angelina tied the knot in 2000 and the couple became known for their eccentric displays of affection, which apparently included them wearing vials of each other's blood around their necks. They separated in 2002 and Angelina now has six children with partner Brad Pitt.

Billy Bob has been in a relationship since 2003.
