I really thought this was a done deal last year, but apparently, with Variety having hold of it, some major papers must have been signed this week.
According to Variety, Brad has “committed” to the project, and filming will start in October. The F. Scott Fitzgerald story is about a man, who upon reaching the age of 50, begins to age backwards, and is directed by Fight Club director David Fincher. Cate Blanchette will star in this film with Brad. They must have worked well together – can’t wait to see!
Variety also mentions that Brad is looking at another film, State of Play, based on a miniseries on British television.
Brad Pitt has committed to star in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, a Paramount/Warner Bros. co-production, which he’ll make after he reprises his role this summer in the Steven Soderbergh-directed Ocean’s 13 at Warner Bros.
