Brad Pitt: 'Make It Right' Gala on March 10!

Brad Pitt will be hosting the star-studded “A Night to Make It Right” gala on March 10 in New Orleans, La.

Ellen DeGeneres will co-host the $1,000-per-person soiree, which will benefit Brad‘s Make It Right home rebuilding organization.

The night will also feature special guest Randy Jackson and performances by Rihanna, Sheryl Crow, and Seal. Josh Brolin, Sean Penn, Kevin Spacey, and Spike Lee will serve on the event’s host committee.

“Our goal is 150 houses, and this fundraiser is going to help us reach that goal,” Make It Right spokeswoman Taylor Royle told the Associated Press. “It’s been a long road to get these families home. But we’re happy with our progress, and we’re looking forward to celebrating the progress we’ve made.”

    Brad Pitt Says He’ll Only Cameo In ‘Twelve Years A Slave,’ Hopes ‘World War Z’ Will Have Socio-Political Themes

    Whoever ends up winning at the Academy Awards in a few weeks (spoiler: “The Artist”), Brad Pitt will still pretty much be the belle of the ball. He’s nominated for Best Actor for “Moneyball,” a film that, without Pitt’s perseverance, likely wouldn’t have gotten made after Sony pulled the plug on Steven Soderbergh’s version, while the star also has a nomination in his producer capacity for Best Picture for the project. His other baby of 2011, “The Tree of Life,” also surprised many with nominations for Best Picture and Best Director, and Pitt may find himself with a third nomination if the Academy names him as one of the eligible producers on that film.

    But Pitt being Pitt, he’s not resting on his laurels. He’ll next be seen in one of our most anticipated films of the year, Andrew Dominik’s “Cogan’s Trade,” but down the line are two more projects from his production company Plan B, and as part of an extensive cover story in The Hollywood Reporter, the actor’s spilled the beans on both of them.

    First up, coming this Christmas, is “World War Z,” the long-gestating adaptation of Max Brooks’ best-seller, a fictional oral history of a zombie plague that brings the world to its knees. The film finally got rolling last summer, with “Quantum of Solace” helmer Marc Forster directing, but some fans were concerned by reports that the script, by J. Michael Straczynski (“Changeling”) and Matthew Michael Carnahan (“The Kingdom”), was drastically departing from the source material. Would this just turn out to be a big dumb blockbuster? Pitt suggests not, telling the trade that he hopes it’ll follow the best examples of the genre since “Night of the Living Dead” in reflecting the world around it, even while providing thrills: “I thought it was an interesting experiment. I thought, ‘Can we take this genre movie and use it as a Trojan horse for social-political problems?’

    And coming after that will be another, less multiplex-friendly film: “Twelve Years A Slave,” the third film by “Hunger” and “Shame” director Steve McQueen. The film is backed by Pitt’s production company, with the actor announced as part of the cast, but he tells the trade that it won’t be a large role: “I’m only doing a small cameo, but it stars Michael Fassbender and Chiwetel Ejiofor, and there’ve been very few movies about slavery, certainly that had the impact of ‘Roots.’” The film, written by McQueen and John Ridley (“Three Kings”), tells the story of Solomon Northrup (Ejiofor), a free man in the pre-Civil War era tricked into slavery, who only received his freedom when a Canadian carpenter (Fassbender) helped Northrup’s wife launch a court case to highlight the injustice.

    That picture will get underway in the summer, so will likely hit in 2013, while “World War Z” lands on December 21st.

    Brad didn’t say that out of frustration or in response to any questions about them marrying. When they were Namibia he was asked to do an Esquire cover for fall to coincide with the release of Babel. Along with the interview he was asked to make a list of things he that he thought everyone should know and one of them concerned the then upcoming Prop 8 vote in Cali banning gay marriage. He said it was stupid and wrong and that he and Angie wouldn’t get married until all gay people could marry. A few months later Angie did an interview with Reader’s Digest and she was asked about it and said he was speaking in a “would it be nice if…” kind of way. Fastfoward to 2008 (IIRC) and Brad was promoting CCOBB and told Bill Maher that he said it out of frustration but since he’d but it out there he’d stick by it…UNLESS the kids asked them to marry and it was important to them. And that’s pretty much been his stance every since then – he’d stand by it UNLESS it becomes important the kids. Angie has said the same thing multiple times – they don’t NEED a marriage certificate, the commitment to their children is the most important thing BUT if it’s something that’s important to the kids, then they’ll think about getting married. I’m trying to remember which interview it was but Angie did an interview for Salt – Nightline maybe – where she said they’d discussed and knew one day they’d probably have to because the kids were asking about it. At other times she was aksed about it and said they’d get married if the kids asked, but they weren’t asking so it was a non-issue. Obviously they’re now asking and it has become important to the kids (now that they’re old enough to know what even marriage is!) and they’re just saying, “We stand by our word to the gay community but our childrens’ happiness supercedes everything else. If they want mommy and daddy to get married, then we have to seriously consider doing so and everybody else can go suck an egg.”

    Yes, it was in the Esquire interview. I don’t know why people get so het up about Brad’s comment. The fact is – they’ll get married when ANGIE wants to and not before or unless. If Angie walked up to Brad one day and said, “Let’s get married.” He’d go, “Okay, baby. Whatever you want.” They’d go someplace without a waiting period and get married with the kids and family present. And nobody would know about it for weeks or months unless they want it known. The end. Can we now move on to the next non-controversy, please?

    Trouble in Paradise? Says:

    i can smell a very close break up announcement.whenever pitt starts getting so candid in his interview,you know the break up is near.we all remember how he was talking about having kids with aniston during ocean 12 red carpets and two months later,they broke up.he always does that.his technique never changes.he does that to distract people from what is actually going on.

    the clock is tickling.tick tock it’s so over.

    To all the MFing so called
    Angelina fans…
    Brad has brought prestige and security and
    stability to that crazy womans
    life.
    she said it herself…
    brad has brought things to her life that
    she never thought she would have.
    kids, a family, respectability.
    plus hes prettier than her
    and thats a fact!
    everytime brad open’s his mouth
    you crazies get wound up
    like he’s saying something negative.
    if you people want to
    divide then we will
    divide. but if you want to
    be one united fanbase

    Trouble in Paradise? Says:

    you pitt’s fans know what a liar he is.he is pulling that marriage card out because he want that oscar jolie already has.something pitt will never get.he is selling his kids and is bringing up jolie because he wants to get attention.he knows nobody cares about him if not for jolie and the kids.he enjoys putting jolie to get punches left and right if it means he will come out smelling like roses.i’m glad jolie will never marry him.i bet jolie will go ahead and deny any kind of discussion about wedding during the sag.we all know she has to go to those awards eventhough she doesn’t want to.she knows pitt better than anyone and knows what a hollywood ho he is.he is so different from jolie so superficial.
