Pitt as Jesse James?

03.18.2004

Between his starring roles and his producing gigs, Brad Pitt is one busy mutha. He's got TROY coming this May, he's currently filming MR. AND MRS. SMITH with Angelina Jolie, after that is OCEAN'S 12 and he's attached to star in Scorsese's INFERNAL AFFAIRS with Leo DiCaprio. Pitt just added another project to his hectic schedule, the adaptation of the Robert Hansen novel THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD. Expect the title to be shortened for the movie or else movie marquees will run out of letters and they'll have to use zeros for the Os and backwards threes and Es. Pitt will produce along with Ridley and Tony Scott and Australian director Andrew Dominik (CHOPPER) is in negotiations to write and direct the film. Pitt has not officially signed on to star but Warner Bros is doing everything it can to convince Pitt to star as Jesse James. The film would follow James and his posse, which features a jealous partner named Robert Ford who eventually kills James with hopes of usurping his power. If Pitt were to decide to star, he likely wouldn't be able to commit time to the project until 2005. Director Dominik is also developing THE DEMOLISHED MAN at Paramount. Pitt's production company Plan B will begin work later this year on Tim Burton's CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY.
