As compelling as Zamperini’s story is, it was not an easy sell. Possibly the longest gestating project in Hollywood history, it took 57 years to turn his tale into a cinematic reality. Actors from Tony Curtis to Nicolas Cage at one time or another were attached to the role, and many directors came and went. In the end, it was an Oscar-winning actress with only one little-seen feature film to her directing resume who shepherded the $65 million film to the silver screen. It is by far Jolie’s most ambitious and riskiest directorial outing — her first big studio movie. And she did it without any marquee names in her cast; in fact, one of the most pivotal roles was filled by a Japanese rock star who had never acted before.
In 1956, Universal Pictures acquired the rights to Zamperini’s just-published biography “Devil at My Heels,” but a script was never written and the project languished. In 1998, a CBS documentary about Zamperini’s life caught the eye of Matt Baer, who was then running the film division at Brillstein-Grey. Baer met with Zamperini and formed a fast friendship.
Today I added bunch of latest scans to gallery. So check them out.

Louis Zamperini knew a thing or two about waiting. The Olympic runner turned U.S. airman spent 47 deadly days living on a raft after a 1943 plane crash and subsequently survived two years as a Japanese prisoner of war. Still, when he sold Universal Pictures his life story in 1957, Zamperini couldn’t have known it would take more than 50 years for his tale to be told.
Come Christmas Day, however, the wait will be over. When Unbroken hits theaters, Zamperini’s story—originally optioned for a then up-and-coming Tony Curtis—will unfold on-screen for moviegoers around the globe. But beyond just exposing the world to the incredible life of Zamperini, it will give audiences a peek at the inner workings of another exceedingly impressive creature: director Angelina Jolie.
“I was looking for something to do and studying what was out there as a director,” says Jolie, perched poolside at a villa on the tiny Maltese island of Gozo. “Directing is very different from acting because it takes more than two years of your life, so it has to matter—really matter—in a different way.”
