Brad Pitt May Star In Tree of Life

Brad Pitt-1It looks like Brad Pitt left State Of Play to cover Heath Ledger’s spot in Tree Of Life; It is a key party with films for spouses. We get word of this casting news from the professionals at Variety:

Pitt, who recently ankled the Universal Pictures drama “State of Play,” would replace Heath Ledger, who was skedded to star with Sean Penn in the Malick-directed drama, which begins production in the spring. Though Penn is booked to play the title character in the Gus Van Sant-directed “Harvey Milk,” he’s still expected to play a supporting role in “Tree of Life.” Penn has an allegiance to River Road’s Pohlad, who co-financed with Paramount Vantage the Penn-directed “Into the Wild.”No deals have been made with Pitt or Penn. Pitt would have earned $20 million against gross to star in “State of Play,” but he’ll likely sign on to “Tree of Life” for nearly no upfront money.

According to IMDB Malik began work on this project in 1978 and is now returning to it almost 30 years on. This story must be good because not only did it stand the test of time; it has Sean Penn and Brad Pitt wanting to be a part of it. This is a fantastic story that deserves a movie of its own. I shouldn’t judge, it took me 27 years to get my full license to drive.

Brad Pitt and Sean Penn are both on my shortlist of “bitchin’ actors” and it would be cool to see them work together. I am not sure what this movie is about yet, I am hunting for information about the film, and will be sure to forward the news to you, as soon as it is made available to me!
