Just months after wrapping the WW2 tank movie “Fury,” Brad Pitt is reportedly circling an untitled WW2 romantic thriller for GK Films.
Steven Knight (“Eastern Promises,” “Locke”) has scripted the project with a major director being sought and production aiming to begin early next year. No distributor is yet set.
Meanwhile, Meryl Streep has been confirmed to star in “Ricki and Flash,” the Diablo Cody spec script which Jonathan Demme is attached to direct. Columbia TriStar is in talks to distribute and finance the film.
Streep plays a fading rockstar who tries to reconnect with her estranged children as one of them goes through an ugly divorce.
