Brad Pitt has had such an incredible career, exploring a variety of different period pieces and colorful characters. In recent years, he seems to have an affinity for one era in particular; World War II. Having shined in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds" and set to star in another WWII flick from "End of Watch" director David Ayer titled "Fury", he is now exploring what is being described as a romantic thriller within the same time period.
The film doesn't have an official name yet but is being written by Steven Knight. Known for some pretty great writing credits including such titles as "Eastern Promises" and "Dirty Pretty Things", Knight is definitely a very talented man.
A deal is said to be close to locking and once it finalizes, the hunt will then begin for a big-name director. Pitt's draw alone as well as the interesting and rich decade to cover, seems like an easy recipe to pull some serious talent in. If all finalizes as planned, the production is said to be targeting to kickoff "early next year".
