Angelina Jolie and hubby Brad Pitt have been staying busy on the beautiful island of Malta lately.  They are currently working on their first project together since Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2005, the movie on which they first met.  An independent movie, By The Sea, documents the challenge a longtime married couple face as they go on vacation throughout Europe in the 1970s.

The Mr. and Mrs. Smith stars were seen filming scenes in a classic Citroën DS convertible in Gozo, an island of the Maltese archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea, on Monday, with Brad behind the wheel and Angelina in the passenger seat.

Looks a bit crowded with 3 cameramen, the camera gear, plus the director perched in the back!   Probably one reason they chose the DS; – for its hydropneumatic self-levelling suspension!   The DS, renowned for it’s magic carpet ride and phenomenal payload capability, has been used extensively in the film industry since its introduction in the mid 1950’s.

Taking a high profile role in By The Sea, the DS  should command even higher prices (especially the cabriolet versions) in an already rising market when the film is released.
