Here’s some super cool news – Brad Pitt will star in a new original movie that is set to debut on Netflix!
The 51-year-old actor will star in and produce War Machine, a provocative satirical comedy that will debut on the streaming service and in select theaters in 2016.
War Machine concerns a four star, “rock star” general whose lethal reputation and impeccable track record vaults him to command the American war in Afghanistan. Determined to win the “impossible” war once and for all with a radical new approach, the general and his motley staff of commanders and press advisers race across the globe navigating delicate international alliances and troop requests, the charged battlefield of Washington politics, the voracious appetite of the media, and the day-to-day management of the war itself – all the while struggling to stay connected to the lives of men and women out in the field.
“We are so excited to be a part of the inspiring commitment by Netflix to produce cutting-edge content and to deliver it to a global audience” Brad said in a statement.
The movie will be directed by David Michod, who directed the recent films Animal Kingdom and The Rover.
