Pitt Fit for 'Schmidt'

Brad Pitt is attached to star in "Chad Schmidt," a comedy that blurs the line between reality and fantasy.

"Schmidt" centers on a talented young actor who moves to Los Angeles in the 1980s to pursue his dream of movie stardom. The twist is that he bears a peculiarly strong resemblance to another up-and-coming actor named Brad Pitt.

As the real Pitt achieves a dazzling level of fame, the fictional Schmidt, for all of his talent, becomes a comic uncastable joke. Ultimately, Schmidt must struggle to overcome the blow of abandoning his dreams and must make peace with the hard realities of life.

Pitt leaves State of Play movie

Actor Brad Pitt has pulled out of political thriller State of Play because of script concerns, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Universal confirmed the actor had left but it remained "committed to this project", the trade paper reported.

Pitt was due to appear alongside Dame Helen Mirren and Ed Norton as an investigative journalist in the movie, based on a BBC drama series.

The script cannot be worked on because of the writers' strike.

The film will be directed by Kevin Macdonald, who also directed The Last King of Scotland.

State of Play is about a team of journalists investigating the mysterious death of a political researcher.

The BBC TV original won a best actor Bafta for Bill Nighy, who played newspaper editor Cameron Foster, and further editing and sound honours.

Pitt was set to play Cal McCaffrey, portrayed by John Simm in the TV version.

Shameless writer Paul Abbott penned the original TV script but it has been adapted for the big screen by Matthew Michael Carnahan, who wrote Lions for Lambs, starring Tom Cruise and Meryl Streep.

Paul Abbott should be ashamed of himself for penning this.

Brad Pitt joins WB for 'Odyssey'
Actor teams with George Miller for adaptation
Source: Variety

After turning Homer’s epic poem "The Iliad" into the 2004 film "Troy," Warner Bros. and Brad Pitt are teaming with George Miller to adapt the Greek poet’s other masterwork, "The Odyssey."

Their intention is to transfer the tale to a futuristic setting in outer space.

Warner Bros. has quietly set up "The Odyssey," and the early hope is that Pitt will star and Miller will direct, with Pitt’s Plan B producing.Pitt played Achilles in the Wolfgang Petersen-directed "Troy," a global blockbuster that David Benioff adapted from "The Iliad."

Both Homer poems dealt with the Trojan War; "The Odyssey" focused on the exploits of Odysseus, who hatched the idea to build the Trojan Horse. "The Odyssey" deals with his long journey home after he declines to become a god.

Pitt will next be seen in the David Fincher-directed "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and the Terrence Malick-directed "Tree of Life." He just began shooting the Quentin Tarantino-directed "Inglourious Basterds."

Miller remains attached to direct "Justice League" at WB.

Really? That's next? Fuck yeah!

If Brad had rocked the 'stache in Fight Club, Fincher would have nailed best picture.  We all know it.

Pitt, Portman to star in 'Artifacts'
Paramount film based on Shapton book
Source: Variety

Paramount Pictures has attached Brad Pitt and Natalie Portman to star in a film based on the new Leanne Shapton book "Important Artifacts and Personal Property from the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion, and Jewelry." The book was just published by Farrar Straus & Giroux.

Paramount won an auction for the book rights Tuesday night, with Pitt's Plan B producing with Portman's Handsomecharlie Films banner. Portman brought the book to Pitt, whose company is Par-based.

The book takes the form of Sotheby's-like estate auction catalog, with 325 entries and photographs depicting items that reveal the private moments and the rise and fall of a four-year relationship between the fictitious couple Hal Morris (a 40ish photographer) and Lenore Doolan, (a New York Times food columnist in her late 20s).

The project will be developed as a romantic comedy, with Pitt to play Morris, and Portman to play Doolan.

Shapton, an illustrator and art director of the NYT's Op-Ed page, uses items that range from clothes to notes, e-mails and heirlooms to convey the excitement, the hopes and dreams, and ultimately the heartache of a love affair that runs its course.

CAA brokered the deal.

Pitt, who'll next be seen starring in the Quentin Tarantino-directed "Inglourious Basterds" and the Terence Malick-directed "The Tree of Life," is expected to next star in the Steven Soderbergh-directed "Moneyball." It's the latest high-profile lit buy for his Plan B, which has James Gray writing to direct an adaptation of the just-published David Grann book "The Lost City of Z." Earlier this week, Par acquired the John Le Carre novel "The Night Manager" for Pitt to produce.

Portman will next be seen in the Jim Sheridan-directed drama "Brothers."
