Film industry veteran Emily Wolfe has joined Plan B Entertainment’s film division as it continues to expand its prolific slate of films.
“We are excited to have Emily join our team as we look towards the future of our company, and the continued building of our feature-film slate. She will be a welcome addition to our growing company,” Plan B Entertainment’s Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner said Thursday.
Wolfe most recently served as co-producer on the Millie Bobby Brown fantasy film Damsel. A former Netflix executive, she worked for four years on films including The King, Rebecca, Let It Snow, Earthquake Bird, The Midnight Sky, Yes Day and Paul Thomas Anderson’s one-reeler Anima. She began her career working for Lindsay Doran and Stacey Snider.
The email dropped into my inbox from an unknown source, ‘Would I be interested to meet Brad Pitt to discuss his latest project, a new skincare range called Le Domaine?’ Precise time, date and location to be disclosed, but I had to call a mobile number to get more detail.
As GLAMOUR’s European beauty director, I have met and worked with a fair few celebrities and had some amazing invites, but I’m also a believer that when things sound too good to be true, it’s because they are exactly that. At the risk of the invite being a prank, I had no intention of calling the number, but sent a probing email reply. A week later I hadn’t heard back and kicked myself that maybe, I had just passed up my chance to meet Brad. So I emailed back again, to receive yet another request to call, so this time I thought, ‘Why not? What’s there to lose in a conversation?’
After a pleasant discussion and the understanding nothing would be sent on email to ensure total confidentiality, the offer had gone up a notch. I would travel to Chateau Miraval in Provence, Brad’s sometimes home and wine estate. Yep, the one where he and Angelina got married surrounded by their brood of children; the one that’s currently at the centre of a court case over ownership after Angelina sold her share; and the one that also produces the delicious rosé, Miraval. I mean Brad and rosé – what more could you ask for?
Brad Pitt has not read the beauty tutorial memo. We’re 25 minutes into a world’s first interview with the actor, producer, philanthropist, wine producer, and newly minted skin care brand founder at Château Miraval, the sprawling property and vineyard in the South of France that Pitt bought with Angelina Jolie in 2012, and after a few quick-fire questions we arrive at the inevitable part of any skin care founder interview: “What’s your regimen?” I ask, with a certain amount of trepidation. “Can we have a product demonstration?”
Pitt balks, smiling. “I’m not doing that!”
“Maybe just talk about how your routine has evolved, then? Just don’t make it too QVC,” I suggest to the Academy Award–winning actor, hoping he might warm to the idea of applying face creams while being filmed.
“I wouldn’t know how to do that, unless it was a comedy,” Pitt says, laughing. “Actually, Sandy [Sandra Bullock] and I did once try to develop a whole idea of a husband-and-wife team who were QVC’s most successful salespeople, but we’re getting a divorce, we hate each other, and we’re taking it out on air as we sell things. That’s as far as we got.”
Brad Pitt has made his debut as a sculptor, in a group show at the Sara Hildén Art Museum in Tampere, Finland. The A-List actor’s artworks appear alongside those by the musician Nick Cave and the artist Thomas Houseago for the exhibition “We,” on view until January 15, 2023.
Among the nine works by Pitt on show are a house-shaped structure molded in clear silicon and shot with bullets, and his first ever sculpture, from 2017, “House A Go Go”: an 18-inch miniature house made out of tree bark, crudely held together with tape.

The largest pieces include a coffin-sized bronze box depicting hands, feet and faces attempting to break through the structure at various angles, and the plaster wall-hanging sculpture “Aiming At You I Saw Me But It Was Too Late This Time,” from 2020, which depicts a gun fight between eight figures.

If dinner with Brad Pitt in September was on your bucket list, for a few hours on Tuesday, it seemed like it could become a reality — for the right price.
Charitybuzz posted an auction item on Tuesday morning that featured an evening with Pitt in support of Global Green and a new initiative the nonprofit is launching with the Oscar winner.
Pitt, who has long ties with the environmental organization through his work in New Orleans, was due to appear at a private dinner at one “of the world’s largest private mansions, located in Beverly Hills.” The winning bidder would have had the opportunity to attend the event, schmooze with Pitt during dedicated “one-on-one time,” take a photo with him, ask some questions and hear about this new partnership.
The lot was meant to include a meet-and-greet experience, dinner and alcoholic beverages over the estimated three-hour experience. The lot’s description makes it clear that proper behavior is expected and it “is not an opportunity for networking, business propositions or script submissions.”
However, that auction was abruptly closed a few hours after it was originally posted and it is no longer being offered. The reason for its removal is unclear but it is understood that the event is still scheduled to go off as planned.
Bullet Train starring Brad Pitt got mixed reviews from critics, but the movie certainly has its fans. It may not break any new ground, but it is a fun summer film that did well enough to merit a wave of Funko Pop figures. It includes Pitt’s Ladybug character alongside The Wolf (Benito A. Martinez Ocasio a.k.a. Bad Bunny), and the anime-style character Momomon. If you’re lucky, the Chase version of the Ladybug Funko Pop will show up on your doorstep. It removes the glasses and the hat and adds some battle damage.
PS. This isn’t the first official Funko pop of Brad, there is also a Tyler Durden one for sale. It’s awesome!
It turns out, that not only will Damien Chazelle be having an “In Conversation With …” at TIFF, but he will also be presenting exclusive footage of his upcoming “Babylon.”
Not much else is currently known about what will be shown. Maybe it’s the same trailer shown at Comic-Con earlier this summer or maybe, as I’m being told, it’s actual non-interrupted footage of “Babylon.”
TIFF boss Cameron Bailey will be moderating the conversation with Chazelle on Monday, September 12th. The “La La Land” filmmaker will talk about his impressive directorial career and what lies ahead in the future for him.
“Babylon” is currently slated to roll out in theaters on Christmas Day. The film stars Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, Diego Calva and Jean Smart. It is said that Chazelle’s upcoming epic runs at a whopping 3 hours.
Damien Chazelle’s latest film “Babylon” dazzled with its Old Hollywood glamour and other more eccentric charms and mayhem at CinemaCon on Thursday, one of the showpieces of Paramount’s presentation.
Chazelle’s film, which is a “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” reunion of Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie, has a lot of style, some jazz but also some madcap humor, including a closing scene to the trailer in which Pitt’s producing tent is precariously located next to where an elaborate battlefield is staging a period war scene, only for a spear to come flying in inches next to his head. Don’t worry, he was unfazed and merely used the moment to berate his prop’s guy.
