Brad Pitt is a Fighter

Brad Pitt is a Fighter

Brad Pitt will star opposite Mark Wahlberg in boxing flick The Fighter, a drama about boxer Irish Mickey Ward and his unlikely path to become world lightweight champion.

According to Variety, Brad replaced Matt Damon because of scheduling conflicts.

Mr. Pitt will play Dicky Eklund, Mickey’s half-brother and a talented fighter who once went the distance with Sugar Ray Leonard in a title fight but then turned to crime and landed in prison. Then he turned his life around and helped his underperforming brother find the spark for a remarkable run that led to the world title.

The Fighter will be directed by Rachel Weisz‘s hubby Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain).

You just know there will be lotsa shirtless and sweaty scenes in this film. Ladies, buy your drool rags now.

Too bad Brad is going to ruin the movie.

Seriously can’t they find other better actors younger
more sophisticated out there?

BOOOORRRIIINGGGG.

Walhberg and Pitt, great 2 actors who peaked in the 90s and now
are so ugly in the face and tired.

I heard that some idiots have been asking where Shiloh was. Didn’t they hear? Shiloh has become the personal advisor of Mr Ban Ki-moon.

Kevin Bacon – LMFAO! Good one!

Dang Just Jared you are too fast. Give a girl time to catch up. Thanks for the new thread. This sounds like an interesting project. BP plays the boxer quite well i.e. Snatch and Fight Club to a certain extent plus us girls get to see his fine body. Peace to all.

2. Brad Pitt
Pitt will turn 44 a week before this Christmas. But in high-def, he’s no gift to women. With those pockmarked cheeks, you half expect a space capsule to land on his face. Pitt was the star of Ocean’s 13, but in HD, he looks like he should be the star of Apollo 13 — playing the part of the Moon!

And let me tell you, in high-def, you can see that his age has finally caught up with him. The star of Fight Club looks like he’s taken a few shots to the chops.

HE’S TRYING TO GET AS MUCH WORK AS POSSIBLE BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE. LMAO

How can Brad find to star in this film? Has a whole bunch of other movies coming up. I really hope Brad takes a break with Angie in 2008. That would be a great family bonding time.

Can’t wait to see TAOJJBTCRF and the stream of JP movies following!

#8 – but probably Wahlberg more so than Pitt, IMHO…

LOOK AT HIS BODY AND I THINK HE HAS BETTER BODY NOW.WOW WHAT MOVIE IT WILL BE.

ANGIE YOU ARE DAMNED LUCKY TO HAVE HIM.

Brad is still the hottes A-list actor in hollywood after all these years. The powers that be know a good thing when they see one. This is why Brad can basically pick and choose any movie he wants.. And Angie baby as wel

He never said he was taking a break, this report is from variety, so it’s true. If you read the whole article at variety, they will film this movie after he finish State of Play, probably around january-feb of 2008

How is A Mighty Heart doing in the box offices internationally?

17 Slayer, The

WHY?WHILE Angie is at home with kids he can his work better. and this is cool and they can keep family more together with this work.

and movie shooting for him won`t take more than 1 or 2 months in the year so he probably will have enough time for his family.

WOW. He’s working non-stop. I wonder how he finds time to spend family time. I would love for him to take a break in 2008, so he can be with his family.
