Pitt's Split Decision

Pitt's Split Decision

Brad Pitt‘s new gunslinger flick, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is said to have two versions floating around — one from writer-director Andrew Dominik and another from Brad, who produced and starred in the film.

No word from Warner Bros. on which version will be released yet.

Jesse James follows the last heist committed by James (Pitt), and Ford’s (Casey Affleck) devoted and then vengeful relationship with the legendary outlaw.

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (new movie still above!) opens in theaters on Sept. 21.

    I hope he gets an Oscar nomination out of this movie. He’s due for one. :-)

    No director gets final cut. Ever. Ask Tony Kaye.

    “Pitt has had daughter Shiloh Nouvel and completed two other movies, “Ocean’s 13″ and “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.” “Ocean’s” will be in theaters more than three months before ‘Jesse James.’”

    Ed Norton did the same with American History X, but that end bad becsuse the director pull off after Nortor started to weight in the edition process. Nortor wanted the final cut to garantee him an oscar nod (which happend) but his chances went to hell after the whole drama was made public. Tom Cruise did the same with Mission Impossible.

  • Joel

    The studio will go with Pitt’s cut they always do the same, they stick with the big movie star and screw the indy director.

    THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD 02/01/2007 at 08:23 AM

    Guys:

    I’ve been meaning to post this for a little while and haven’t had the opportunity,
    so here it is. I had the distinct privilege and pleasure of getting a sneak peek at
    Andrew Dominik’s film ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the coward Robert
    Ford’ and all I can say is:

    Holy Sh*t.

    It’s so close to being a full-fledged masterpiece, it literally had me sitting there,
    saying things like ‘Where the hell has Casey Affleck been?’ He’s a LOCK for some
    sort of major acting nod. Be it Globe, Oscar, something. Nobody comes out of this
    movie without viewing that guy in whole other light. Mindblowing. I’m not
    bullshi*ting you guys. He’s that good. And Brad Pitt has never been better in
    a film. He too, should be lauded for what he accomplishes with that role. The
    guy projects a menace I’ve never seen and goes very, VERY deep.

    There are moments of still and utter silence between characters as tense and awkward
    and terrifying as anything you’ve ever seen. Andrew’s ability to just allow a scene to
    develop gradually and let the audience watch and observe without the need
    for rampant schisms of rocket propelled editorial breaks is the mark of a true
    master. If you saw and loved ‘Chopper’ then I can’t imagine you not falling head
    over heels for this flick.

    We throw words around like ‘brilliant’ and attach greatness to things that in the
    end don’t really deserve that level of praise…This one DOES.

    I’m hoping Warner Brothers understands what this film can be and allows Andrew’s
    cut to see the light of day. At nearly three hours it’s something of such sublime,
    elegaic beauty and vicious intent, that I don’t think we’ll see a film like it for a long
    time to come.

    This guy cant act and he’s getting old and ugly.
    This movie will flop.
    He deserves the whore-Jolie.

    It’s not the director vs Brad it’s Brad and the director vs the studio.
    +++++++++++++++++++
    From the L.A Times
    “one from writer-director Andrew Dominik and another from producer and star Pitt, according to a person familiar with the making of the movie. It’s unclear which version of the film will be released”.

    It’s Brad version vs. Dominik version.

  • Besane

    Brad got nominated for Oscar already, that means he is already in the “club”. It’s all matter of luck and time.

  • TO Sheri

    Did you read the L.A Times article? it’s Pitt’s versus the director. They don’t know which version the studio will use.

    yes…please…recap….please begging…..Thanks

  • Frenchy

    The studio will go with Brad’s version probably, then when the DVD comes out, there will be the director’s cut.

  • Jonsey

    It kind of sucks that the movie will come to choosing one of the two versions. The director is probably frustated and Brad too.

  • Chris

    hehe next time you can be first

  • susie

    truth- what channel is AH on? I am not seeing it in my guide. thanks.

    I am really looking forward to this movie :lol: and OT, loved, loved Edward Norton in AHX :)

    You can watch the video of AH discussing Brad/Angelina fight to help the worlds kids online. They also give a 1800 that you can call to donate to the Global action fund Angelina and Brad gave one million too.

    Joel and Ethan Coen team with George Clooney and Brad Pitt on “Burn After Reading,” which will shoot in New York. Working Title has a November start on “State of Play,” the Americanized version of the British miniseries that Kevin Macdonald will direct with Pitt starring.

    The family will be in NYC then that’s great :D I read at another blog that Brad will be playing the agent on “Burn after Reading”.

  • Sometimes … Can’t Blame the studios

    Warner Bros lost a lot of money for films where the directors got a lot of artistic freedom.

    The Good German:
    Production Budget: $32 million
    Box Office world-wide : $5.8 million

    The Fountain
    Production Budget:$35 million
    Box office world-wide : $15 million

    Note:The studios only get 50% of the boxoffice gross.
