Will Brad Pitt be sued?
The horror! The despair! The drama!
Brad Pitt faces possible legal action after pulling out of political thriller State of Play at the last minute.
Brad was set to play an investigative journalist in the new film, alongside Edward Norton, Helen Mirren, Rachel McAdams, Jason Bateman and Robin Wright Penn.
He was reportedly unhappy with the shooting script – which could not be changed because of the Hollywood screenwriters' strike.
Universal Pictures confirmed Brad’s exit in a statement:
“Brad Pitt has left the Universal Pictures production of `State of Play.’ We remain committed to this project and to the filmmakers, cast members, crew and others who are also involved in making the movie. We reserve all rights in this matter.”
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Johnny Depp and Russell Crowe are being considered as possible replacements for the star.
