Brad Pitt Brings Preferred Director To The World War Z Sequel

Brad Pitt has called on an old friend to help save the day. Pitt has asked David Fincher to helm the sequel to World War Z and Fincher has agreed to helm the project. In doing so, Fincher may have saved the film from being tossed into the pile of “planned sequels that were never made.”

 

World War Z definitely was a departure for Brad Pitt. The actor is not exactly known for appearing in films known for their zombie mayhem. Pitt’s star power was a fantastic addition to the film. His presence also contributed to the massive box office success of the multimillion-dollar project.

 

David Fincher worked with Pitt on a number of different projects. Their most famous actor-director team-up was on the cult classic film Fight Club. The realm of World War Z is absolutely different from the land of the Fight Club, but the two talented men should be able to forge of unique vision in the zombie sequel.

 

Pitt’s desire to bring Fincher aboard shows a commitment to the sequel. An actor who is as big of a star as Pitt is never going to be short the projects to choose from. Pitt’s box office appeal has definitely not diminished over the years. He is still a major bankable star. The actor really has a passion for revisiting the dismal world of the original film. Perhaps there is still something very compelling to tell about the events of the original project.

 

Then there is the issue of the sequel being as big of a hit as the original. Pitt definitely would not suffer from having another hit film under his belt.

 

 

Brad Pitt Custody Filings to Remain Public

For a decade, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were the biggest celebrity couple on the planet. They were the darlings of the tabloids. Photos of the attractive pair and their many children were regularly posted on celebrity gossip sites. The couple recently called it quits when Jolie filed for divorce. The split has become a rather messy one because of the aforementioned children. Pitt wants to make sure that he is allowed a decent amount of custody. Pitt already agreed that the children will live primarily with Jolie.

 

Pitt was recently denied in an attempt to have all of his court filings sealed that pertain to the custody of his children. A judge ruled that the nature of Pitt’s request did not fit the criteria that is typically used to make it necessary for court documents to be sealed. Sealing the documents would have made them inaccessible to the general public and members of the media. Pitt attempted to have all future custody filings sealed after a custody agreement that he previously made with Jolie was leaked to the press. The leaked documents indicate that Pitt agreed to only see the children if a therapist was with them.

 

Pitt claimed that the reason he wanted all of the custody filings sealed was to protect the privacy of his children. All of the kids are minors. However, Jolie’s lawyers believe that Pitt’s actions are an attempt to protect himself from unwanted media scrutiny. It remains to be seen if Pitt’s lawyers will file any other motions regarding this matter.

 

FBI Looking Into Brad Pitt Abuse Allegations

The airplane incident involving Brad Pitt just keeps getting worse. Now, the FBI is getting involved. Technically the FBI has jurisdiction over events that occur when aircraft are airborne. The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services is also looking into it.

Accounts right now vary widely on just what exactly happened on that plane. There apparently is some footage of the incident which has yet to be released.

Here’s what is known: Brad and his wife Angelina Jolie were flying home from France with their six children. Brad apparently attacked Jolie’s 15 year old son, Maddox.

Brad allegedly was drunk and got into an argument with Angelina. Maddox jumped in to defend his mother and apparently Brad lunged at him. Pitt is adamant that he did not strike the child. Witnesses say Brad did put his hands on him.

The flight had a stop in Minnesota to refuel. At that point, Brad exited the plane and had some kind of meltdown on the tarmac. Apparently he tried to take a fuel truck to drive away.

Now that the divorce is underway, Pitt plans to fight for joint custody.

Sources close to Pitt claim that he was inappropriate towards his family but that some accounts have blown the story out of proportion. Sources can’t even agree on whether or not he was drunk, though people who saw him on the tarmac say he was obviously intoxicated.

Some close to the family are saying that Jolie and Pitt disagreed on how to parent the children and that Pitt has an issue with substance abuse.
