Brad Pitt eyeing WWII romantic thriller from Eastern Promises scribe

Brad Pitt must really like WWII flicks, because the actor is apparently interested in another movie involving the war. Deadline has learned Pitt may star in an untitled WWII romantic thriller for Graham King's GK Films. Not much else is known about the film, but Stephen Knight (EASTERN PROMISES, LOCKE) wrote the script, and they hope to land a big director for the project.

Production on the film isn't suppose to start until early next year though, and nothing is set in stone yet. It'll be a little easier for GK Films to find a big director if Brad Pitt is attached to the film, but he can be a bit picky with his movies, so we'll have to wait and see if Pitt does join the project.

It's a little hard to get excited about a film with almost no plot details, but if Brad Pitt is interested, then so am I. Right now I just want to know more about the movie though, and if Pitt does sign on, hopefully more details will be released soon.

You'll be able to check out Brad Pitt in David Ayer's WWII tank movie FURY with Logan Lerman, Shia LaBeouf, Jon Bernthal, Michael Pena and Scott Eastwood on November 14th, 2014.

Have to agree. Anything starring Pitt now these days is a must see film.

EASTERN PROMISES was a great freakin' script

It didn't hurt that Viggo Mortensen brought his A game to that role. So I'm interested in this flick.

Whoever does this movie should be an old-school action director. I'd almost hand it to Peter Berg, if only to wash the lousy taste of BATTLESHIP out of my mouth. Come to think of it, that movie would have worked very well as a WW2 thriller . . .

Did you not see Lone Survivor? Berg directed that and it was great.
