When Hit Fix asked True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto what he had lined up for season two, he responded with one sentence:
“This is really early, but I’ll tell you (it’s about) hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system.”
Not much for fans to go on. But according to Hollywood Life, we may have a leading candidate for one of the season’s “bad men” (or possibly “hard women”?): Academy Award-winning producer and occasional movie star Brad Pitt.
“Brad’s name has come up many times, it’s just a matter of what his other commitments are,” an unidentified insider told the site. “It’s the show everyone wants to be on, because the writing and the roles are just so exquisite and complex. Brad has tight relations with HBO — he teamed up with Ryan Murphy last year to produce the HBO movie The Normal Heart. I know everyone would be thrilled to have him onboard.”
A first look at World War Z, the most expensive zombie project in Hollywood history — starring Brad Pitt as a man searching for the origin of the plague that’s turning humanity into a rapacious army of rasping death. The road to Z hasn’t been easy — here’s a rundown of the movie’s bumpy production.

You’ve got Brad Pitt and an evocative story and that’s the best you could do?
Trailer: Moneyball - Sept 23
Directed by Bennett Miller, written by Aaron Sorkin and Steven Zaeillian. Starring Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Wright, and Chris Pratt.
While it doesn’t pack the punch of the teaser for Sorkin’s fall stunner last year (The Social Network) it does whet the appetite for a sophisticated sports underdog story. Pitt seems at ease in the environment and Jonah Hill has the potential to be very wisely cast. I’m glad they went ahead with making this film, despite the vast studio and budget issues they were facing. It could have real potential come award season, and if it doesn’t it looks solid enough to stand on its own.
Trailer: The Tree of Life - May 2011
Written and Directed by Terrence Malick, starring Brad Pitt, Sean Penn, and Jessica Chastain.
The Tree of Life is about a father and his son in the 1950s and the man that son grows up to be and how must reconcile their relationship. Film School Rejects describes it as a combination of Stand By Me and The Fountain, I’ll also add Revolutionary Road and Benjamin Button. There’s very little story to be gleaned here, instead it’s all about mood, ambience and visual - which is not a bad thing - especially considering how evocative the imagery is. With all the mediocre trailers coming out for early 2011 movies, this was a breath of fresh air.

Lowe will guest on “Californication’s” fourth season as movie star Eddie Nero, who’s interested in playing Hank Moody (David Duchovny) in a movie adaptation of Hank’s novel. Resemblances to Brad Pitt are not coincidental — Showtime name-checks Pitt in a press release accompanying the first peek at Lowe in character. (Also? Well-done to Lowe and the “Californication” hair, makeup and wardrobe departments. It’s spot on.)
Hank is hired to adapt his own novel, which means that run-ins between him and Eddie are likely. Lowe is booked for three episodes of the series, which returns later this yea
