Brad Pitt Eyeing New WWII Romantic Thriller From EASTERN PROMISES Writer

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".

    The only one of these I had difficulty in choosing was Toy Story 2 vs Jungle Book. There rest were easy. Also, majorly dissapointed there's no anime in here. 8 of the finalists are Pixar, only The Iron Giant ISN'T a Disney movie in the last 16. It is about whats popular and not about whats the best. That's not always wrong though, The Incredibles is much better than Snow White, which to me, is only on this list because it was the first ever feature length animation. Robin Hood is better, Sword in the Stone is better, Alice in Wonderland, Lady and the Tramp, THE FOX AND THE HOUND are all better than Snow White. Add to that the complete lack of Dreamworks movies in the first place. Really? Just TWO!? Where's Antz or The Prince of Egypt or Megamind or SHREK! You couldn't push Toy Story 2 or Snow White out for one of those? Personally, I'd have had X up there instead of Princess Mononoke, but Spirited Away is better than Pinocchio and Grave of the Fireflies is better than Nightmare before Christmas. I'm willing to bet the people that voted on this First round haven't even seen most of the Disney opposition. And that's not because of the result, its because of the scores. A lot of these should have been much closer than they were. From what's left, if it's not an Iron Giant / Toy Story 3 final, it's a travesty and you people out there don't know what a good movie is.
