    My hope is to finallyyyyyy see Brad is some kind of romantic make out scenes in a movie. It’s like he has purposely not done romance scenes since he had an affair with Angie. What’s the matter Angie….afraid of Karma?

    Deadline says he is circling, I take it with a grain of salt.

    ROFLMAOOOO… A romantic lead role for this old coot? Doesn’t he know he’s past his prime? Leave that to Channing Tatum or Bradley Cooper, that’s who female audiences would like to see, not some overbotoxed pepaw with a mysteriously receding hairline.

    Wrong. Brad did TCCBB with Cate Blanchett and they had romantic scenes together. Angie is not Ticky.

    Is there any other gossip blog that creates a thread to discuss a role that an actor hasn’t even signed for? I get that JJ needs to fulfill the contractual obligation of promoting the Brand, but what if negotiations fall through? It would be negative press for the old hasbeen; imagine, he can’t even land a lead role any more. Did Pitty’s relatives… err “publicist” allow to go public with this story? And yes, I see what you’re doing there, JJ, squeezing in that little promotional push for Fury already, even though it’s an ENSEMBLE film.

    It would be interesting to see who the female lead and the rest of the cast will be. As we all know, Pitty always have to share top billing with someone if he wants to have a box office hit. We all known what happened with that overbloated CGI mess that did not break even. His bankability -as well as St. Angie’s- leave a lot to be desired, and the studios know this! ;)

    The Deadline guy reporting this is not Pete Hammond, so I just think someone is using Brad name

    Sounds interesting….love thrillers. I hope it happens!

    If it is true, I am looking forward to it. I always love some Brad romance.

    paul Says:

    Amsin jenhag. Dont worry about the female lead or supporting. I am sure is not Ticky lolololol

    Cassi Says:

    When Brad is circling, it doesn’t mean he will sign on it. He is probably reading the script, he may not like the script.

    Ⱦamsin Says:

    And of course it was none other than Mr Fleming, one of the Brand’s paid lackeys who cooked up this story, once again without any creditable, verifiable sources to back him up, just like the time when he said that Heroina turned down “Gravity” twice.

    “… is circling an untitled WWII romantic thriller which Steven Knight has scripted for Graham King‘s GK Films. While it’s not a done deal yet and not yet set with a distributor, I’m hearing it’s serious and that a big director will be set with an eye toward starting production early next year.”

    If loons ever had doubts that this site serves as the Brand’s mouthpiece, there shouldn’t be any left now.

    @sarah: Well, he doesn’t have a history of romantic movies, now does he? Almost all are “guy stuff”. I wonder who his leading lady will be? Please not Kate Blanchet or Natalie Portman….yucky. Depending on the female role in the movie, Blake Lively could be a good match.

    hell NO Says:

    Blake Lively won’t be in a movie with Brad, she isn’t Brad’s level. I would like to see Keira Knightley as the leading lady.

    Lucian Says:

    I think they just name drops Brad to stir up the interest for the movie.

    You are just a bucket of lies Says:


    The Gravity director and co-writer Alfonso Cuarón himself has said in numerous interviews that he wanted Angelina and RDJ as his first choices to be in Gravity and that it didn’t work out with Angelina due to scheduling as she decided to direct her first film ITLOBAH instead. He also said he hopes to work with Angelina in the future on some other project.

    Now I know this Truth will never be acknowledged by you but Truth and reality are what is verifiable. There is no Truth involved and never will be in any of your constant endless irrational rants about certain people conjured up in your totally delusional mind.

    You are so full of nothingness LOL

    BTW JJ is no mouthpiece for anyone, he posts all kinds of news about all celebs as this is a gossip blog mostly and your constant rants posted as comments have him counting the $$$$$$ they help generate in his bank accounts. JJ can always count on you to keep him rainmake-ing………

    Head over to Deadline if you have a problem with their reporting. They like all could always use a good laugh due to an internet idiot.

    @Ⱦamsin: Yeah too old like a 45 year old pretending to be a stripper, a pre menopausal stripper.LOL

    Ⱦamsin Says:

    You loons got it right when you say that Pothead needs a big name other than his to attract some kind of interest in any movie that he stars in, but Keira or Blake… wow, how disgusting, and I feel sorry for these ladies that someone would be crazy enough to pair them up with an old pepaw who is twice their age. Sadly for Pitty, his eye candy role days are long gone- no female audience will be interested in checking out that old geezer as the romantic interest of a hot, young actress. Face it loons, he’s no Ryan Gosling! He’s more like Ryan O’neal at this point. LOLOLOLOL.

    Maybe he’s interested because it could be a film he could make with Angie. Sort of M&MS 2.
    Brad has no interest in making out with other actresses on film. It is not Angelina’s but his choice, I think. Angelina had a romantic scene in The Tourist and in Salt that didn’t make it to the screen because they were cut out. They were just a short take but were never seen.
    It wasn’t just Brad but also Angelina who have done away with romantic scenes. Look at their recent movies….no real romantic leads….no love scenes to speak of. The last one he did was TCCBB and they weren’t even torrid ones at that. No more Troy or Meet Joe Black for him.
