Brad Pitt's been wanting to bring the novel Peace Like a River to the big screen since 2002, when his production company Plan B bought the rights. The story follows an 11-year-old boy suffering from severe asthma as he embarks on a journey with his sister and father across the country in search of his older brother, who was charged with murder.
Production on the movie is now underway, with The Help's writer and director, Tate Taylor, helming the project. Pitt spoke about the movie at the Producers Guild Awards on Saturday, explaining the delay to Entertainment Weekly.
The first one was The Departed. The second one was this one, and it's just taken awhile for it to gestate and find the right guy to tell it.
Despite Pitt's enthusiasm for producing, don't expect him in the director's chair any time during his career. When asked if this was a possibility, he responded:
Hell no. Not interested. Not my thing. Posted 01.23.12 by reelz
The Hollywood Foreign Press was seemingly nostalgic this morning, handing out six nominations to the black-and-white silent movie The Artist. Tying for second place with five Golden Globe nods each are The Help and The Descendants. Top nominees in the TV categories include new shows Homeland (with best actor, actress, and drama series nods) and New Girl.
In one of the funnier moments, Woody Harrelson — who announced the nominations along with Gerard Butler, Sofia Vergara, and Rashida Jones — used the airtime to plug his upcoming police drama. Pausing after reading the best dramatic movie list he said, "Rampart... opens January 27, but I don't see it on the list here."
The 69th Golden Globe Awards ceremony will be held January 15 and broadcast on NBC. Morgan Freeman is scheduled to receive the Cecil B. Demille Lifetime Achievement Award. Tune in to Hollywood Dailies for full coverage of the upcoming awards show, as well as the full red carpet season. see the full list of Golden Globe nominations >> Posted 12.15.11 by reelz
