TORONTO – Brad Pitt is no longer involved, but Vancouver-raised novelist Tom Rachman still has a screen deal for his smash debut effort, “The Imperfectionists.”

Pitt’s production company, Plan B, optioned the rights to the critically heralded story about a group of journalists when it became an international bestseller and made the Scotiabank Giller Prize long list in 2010.

Now, as Rachman promotes his equally raved-about second book, “The Rise and Fall of Great Powers,” he says Pitt’s company wrote a screenplay for the first novel but “decided it didn’t work as a film.”

“The script that they did, they cut it down to three characters essentially out of all of them, so it just didn’t really have enough of the original in it and so it didn’t go forward,” the 39-year-old said in an interview.

So goes the actual motto used by the real-life American heroes that inspired writer/director David Ayer’s latest, the World War II action-thriller Fury, starring Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena and Jon Bernthal as the five-man crew of a Sherman tank that, in the course of a single day, moves across Germany at the tail-end of the war.

“Both of my grandparents were in World War II and retired as officers,” says Ayer, who himself served more recently in the US Navy. “One fought in the Pacific and one fought in Europe. The whole family was in the war. I grew up exposed to it and hearing the stories, but the stories I heard weren’t kind of the whole ‘Rah, rah, rah! We saved the world!’ They were about the personal price and the emotional price. The pain and the loss are the shadows that sort of stalk my family. That was something that I wanted to communicate with people. Even though it was literally a fight of good against evil and it had an incredibly positive outcome, the individual man fighting it was just as tired, scared and freaked out as a guy operating a base in Afghanistan or a guy in the jungle in Vietnam.”

ComingSoon.net had the chance to visit the production last year in England’s Oxfordshire countryside, where Ayer did everything in his power to make the world of the film as true to life as possible, down to the film’s title star. In the scene being filmed, “Fury,” (the name given to the tank itself) joined four other Sherman Tanks, all actual period vehicles on loan from both private collectors and the Bovington Tank Museum that feature names like “Lucy Sue,” “Sting,” “Old Phyllis” and “Murder, Inc.” They’re all rendezvousing with Jason Isaac’s Captain Wagner to receive new orders.

Described as a “character study with action sequences” in the sizzle reel that dropped earlier this month, David Ayer’s WWII tank pic “Fury” seems to be rolling toward awards season contention. But it would appear that the film needs a few more tweaks before it can hit theatres.

Showbiz 411 reports that starting next week, “Fury” will undergo reshoots with casting underway for two actors to play SS officers. Now, Roger Friedman is taking the alarmist view and making suggestions that this could mean problems with the film. Perhaps. But what’s often forgotten is that some films actually put reshoots into their schedule, and that could be the case here. Or maybe it’s just an extra scene to add needed context. Either way, with shooting set for Los Angeles, it would appear that it’s not major setpieces that need to be done, perhaps more fine tuning. And it’s not even clear if star Brad Pitt himself will be part of them.

So the short version? “Fury” is going to be shooting some new stuff starting week. Whether or not it affects the November 14th release date for the movie, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Thanks Yukko.

Brad Pitt turned up to support other half Angelina Jolie earlier today, as she attended day three of the Global Summit To End Sexual Violence in Conflict, taking place in London.

The Maleficent star and Foreign Secretary William Hague will address the heads of eight United Nations agencies, approximately 1,000 experts and 100 representatives from countries around the globe at the Summit, with the last conference taking place tomorrow at the ExCel.

Hollywood star Angelina kicked off the conference on Tuesday and she said, as part of her speech: “It is a myth that rape is an inevitable part of conflict.”

“There is nothing inevitable about it. It is a weapon of war aimed at civilians. It is nothing to do with sex, everything to do with power. It is done to torture and humiliate innocent people and often very young children. I have met survivors from Afghanistan to Somalia and they are just like us, with one crucial difference: we live in safe countries with doctors we can go to when we are hurt, police we can turn to when we are wronged, and institutions that protect us,” the mother-of-six continued.

Brad Pitt was the victim of a stunt at the Los Angeles premiere last night. Ukrainian serial prankster Vitalii Sediuk hit the actor in the face. Security instantly intervened as the violent scuffle broke out. Sediuk, 25, was later booked on suspicion of misdemeanor battery. Sediuk is a television reporter who often pranks celebrities.

Brad Pitt suffered a hit in the face by a Ukrainian serial prankster on the red carpet last night.

Pitt was signing autographs when Sediuk, 25, rushed past barriers and hit him in the face.
Whether exactly this kind of attack had been the intention or not, is not clear.

While “World War Z” is now viewed as the modern-day runaway film project and all that implies of ego—hubris, irresponsibility and whatnot—the project began with the best of intentions. Brad Pitt’s Plan B Pictures, the same company that developed and won a Best Picture Oscar for “12 Years A Slave,” wanted to try to create their own franchise. Pitt, a producer/actor with diverse taste, wanted a movie his boys could enjoy when they grew up. They hired a respected and eclectic filmmaker Marc Forster (“The Kite Runner,” “Monster’s Ball”) and talented writers—Matthew Michael Carnahan, Drew Goddard, Damon Lindelof—but the project went south on them regardless when they realized the tone and rhythm of an action movie is much more complicated than they realized.

And while the press viewed it as a disaster in the making, the movie’s $540 million worldwide gross turned out to be the opposite of a trainwreck like “Heaven’s Gate” (and in fact is the highest grossing film of Pitt’s career). And for all its problems, it really wasn’t that bad of a tentpole in retrospect, it’s at times thrilling, unnerving and has a genuine anxious feeling of real-world terror. It’s certainly not perfect and its salvage job doesn’t always work either, but you can see it’s good intentions up on the screen – to resemble the thinking man’s tentpole.

Angelina Jolie, 38, worked with a familiar face while filming Maleficent — her adorable daughter, Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, 5. However, the little tot needed some support while filming her scenes, and thankfully it came in the form of her dad, Brad Pitt, 50.

Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Helped Vivienne Film ‘Maleficent’
How sweet is this?

In a recent interview with People, Angelina revealed that she had some on-set help from Brad when it came to coaching Vivienne through filming her scenes for Maleficent.

“The first day was the day she had to catch the butterfly, and she just really didn’t feel like doing it. I actually was holding the pole with the ball on the end and bouncing up and down and dancing, trying to make her laugh, and Daddy was on the edge of the cliff she had to jump off, making faces and all her brothers and sisters were egging her on,” Angelina explained.

Thankfully, Angie and Brad’s antics paid off — and Vivienne nailed her scene.

“She eventually did it but she was taking her sweet time and not wanting to do it twice, certainly.”

Apparently, Vivienne was so good while rehearsing at home with Angelina, it scared her.

“When we did it together, we had a good time, we played together,” she said. “I was actually shocked that she was doing so well … she went back and hit her mark! It’s frightening.”

But of course she’s a good actress, Angelina. Her parents are two of the finest actors there are!

We hope this doesn’t mean you’re giving up your day job, Brad.

I’m a farmer now.

That’s Brad Pitt — actor, producer, father, partner, do-gooder — announcing yet another career shift to Wine Spectator in their June issue. The magazine sat down with Pitt at his and Angelina Jolie’s $60 million Miraval estate in Provence:

I love learning about the land and which field is most suitable for which grape, the drama of September and October: Are we picking today? Where are the sugar levels? How is the acidity? Is it going to rain? It’s been a schooling for me. In the off months, I enjoy cleaning the forest and walking the land.
(Didn’t Dubya pass the time clearing brush off his land?)

And lest you think that rose the Jolie-Pitts released last year to great acclaim was merely a lark:

What really interests me now are the reds … We envision a superb Provence red. A super Provence. Give us seven years … I asked the question, ‘Why can’t we make world-class wine in Provence?’ Let’s approach it like a film, and let’s make something we can be proud of and people can enjoy.

But don’t go thinking Miraval is your average $60 million farm:

We became impassioned with this place, which could produce its own wine, its own food, and become a place where artists could congregate and share ideas.

Make it Right supporters dropped more than $4 million into the charity’s coffers at a star-studded May 17 gala in New Orleans. Proceeds will support continued work in the city’s Lower Ninth Ward, where the charity, launched by actor Brad Pitt, has already built 100 homes for residents displaced after Hurricane Katrina.

Make It Right executive director Tom Darden confirmed the figure in an interview Friday (May 23). He expects more money to come in over the next few weeks as the group confirms pledges made at the party. About 750 people attended the gala.

“The turnout was smaller than when we first held a gala in 2012, but the value of the gifts were about the same,” Darden said. “It was a nice surprise. Getting this kind of big response early in the year front-loads our annual fundraising efforts and lets us plan more efficiently.”
