Brad Pitt Gets The Tiger
The first time these two tried to get something made was The Fountain when Pitt was supposed to play the lead in the fantastical epic romance but walked instead. The second time was The Fighter but both of them backed out.
Variety are reporting that The Tiger is the project that will bring the pair together again and hopefully everything will work out because it sounds like an interesting project.
It’s based on the upcoming non-fiction novel by John Vaillant and variety describes the film as taking place, ‘on the Siberian plain where human development is encroaching on the tigers habitat – and one tiger turns on the intruders. As townspeople are tracked and hunted with an almost supernatural power, a conservation-minded game warden must face down the tiger.’
Babel scribe Guillermo Arriaga is set to pen the script even though the novel won’t be released until August. Counting your chickens, Pitt?
