Assorted Pitt, Weir & Swank Talk

Brad Pitt has laughed off claims in the British press earlier this week that he is to star as cartoon hero “He-Man” in a live-action movie adaptation. Pitt’s publicist Cindy Guagenti told The Celebrity Truth the claim is “completely not true.”

The latest rumoured name to emerge as a potential “The Hobbit” directorial candidate has proven to be a great one – Aussie helmer Peter Weir (“The Truman Show,” “Master and Commander”) according to AICN.

Finally, Hilary Swank is going to suck…your blood. Swank’s production company has optioned former “60 Minutes” producer John Marks novel “Fangland” according to The New York Post. The story follows a TV news magazine show where vampires stalk the studio halls.
