Brad Pitt To Create Chilean Miner Movie?

Brad Pitt To Create Chilean Miner Movie?

Brad Pitt‘s production company, Plan B Entertainment, is in negotiations to buy the film rights to the rescued Chilean miners’ story.

A lawyer for the miners told a publication in Santiago (via TheWrap) that Plan B has made a multi-million dollar offer and that there’s potential for several of those rescued to be cast.

The lawyer added that there have been an average of ten offers per day to buy the rights to the story, but that the miners want to form a holding company to split profits evenly before they sign with a producer.

UPDATE: A rep for Plan B told EW the reports are a “huge wave of nothing. We have shown potential interest, but there have been no serious discussions.”

    The filming process of Untitled Love Story, directed by Angelina Jolie, has been wrapped up in Budapest, as the crew celebrated the occasion at a rock gig by Branko Djuric and his band Bombaj stampa. Djuric, an actor and musician of Bosnian origin, appears in the film and at the wrap-up party his band promoted their latest album.

    Although Djuric has become a close acquaintance of Jolie’s, she missed the party, and will also not be coming to Bosnia and Herzegovina, where the second unit crew have shot just a few final shots of Angelina’s directorial debut.

    - “Look what Angelina has done to me here in Budapest – I’ve gained weight because of her!” Djuric said jokingly and said a few words about his experience of working with the Hollywood star.

    - “I’m glad to have been part of her cast. She has been a pleasant surprise. I’d expected Angelina to be spoilt, which would have been quite expected from a Hollywood star. She is, however, very different than that. She is a big workaholic and a down-to-earth person.

    She is persistent and precise and knows what she wants. Angelina, Brad and the entire family – they are really great people,” said Djuric and added he was most delighted to find out how informed and educated Angelina was.

    Old news but may be the next film. Maybe!!!!

    Brad Pitt will play a mobster in the comedic crime story Cogan’s Trade, a project that reteams him with Andrew Dominik, his director of The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford.

    Pitt’s character, Jackie Cogan, is a professional enforcer who investigates a heist that takes place during a high stakes poker game under protection of the mob.

    Sources say Dominik is seeking to reunite some of his Jesse James actors for the independently financed ensemble movie, including Sam Rockwell and Casey Affleck. Also on the list are Mark Ruffalo and Javier Bardem.

    Since it’s quiet here, I am bringing something interesting from JJB (again. Just to piss off my stalker). Very cute article in a Slovenian magazine with pictures.

    “Brad’s very charming and a true sunshine, while Angie’s so warm, sweet and simple”, says Tanja. Đuro and Tanja are working hard to keep the family together, so when Đuro films, she and the daughters often visit him on set. Unfortunately, she could only visit him once while he was filming in Budapest and took her older daughter, Zala (14)with her.

    Angelina thought Zala was beautiful and liked her immediately so she asked her if she wanted to be a part of the movie. Zala of course agreed and travelled to Budapest again to film the scene (Zala played some small roles in Slovenian movies and lent her voice to some Disney synchronized characters. Her goal is to study film direction).
    We mentioned the rumors claiming that Angelina was jealous of her daughter Shiloh and would often neglect her children. Tanja says it’s absolutely ridiculous. “She couldn’t take better care of her kids! She loves them so much, she can’t bear to be without them. They’re always around her. For Halloween, they all, along with Brad, dressed up and surprised the film crew in the hotel. The kids have a normal, healthy life, they are very much loved. Angie is extremely caring when it comes to the kids, she even brought my daughter, Zala, a blanket so she wouldn’t be cold while directing and a chair so she wouldn’t have to stand. Between every scene, she’s carrying at least two kids around. The kids are very well behaved.”

    Tanja says she didn’t want to be interruptive during her visit on set, but Angie surprised her when she approached Tanja herself. “She’s nice to be around. She invited us to Paris.”

    She also tells us Angie was sorry she couldn’t meet Tanja’s younger daugher Ela (5). Angie invited Zala to the museum tour with her 4 older kids. Zala was greatly enthusiasted by everyone, especially Zahara who she says is very special. Twins did not go since they’re too young. Tanja says each of the kids is special:”Maddox is a little Buda, Pax is like Ela – spends more time on the roof than on the floor. Shiloh is a tomboy, resembles Brad, but has her mommy’s lips and nose.” She was proud of Zala for speaking fluent english with the kids.

    Thanks Oldie. It’s so pathetic that people obviously believe stupid tabloid stories because they keep asking everyone who’s mett the J-Ps if they’re like the tabloids say they are. That’s just plain annoying.
