|Brad’s outta Lost City of Z|
And the writing was on the wall yesterday. Pitt dancing around a new shiny toy that is Andrew Dominik‘s new project, the crime caper “Coogan’s Trade” with a possible impressive cast that may include Casey Affleck, Javier Bardem, Sam Rockwell and Mark Ruffalo (plus he’s interested in another project called, “The Gray Man”). Anyone paying attention all along knew that this news had to smell like bad news for the long-gestating “The Lost City Of Z.” And yup, it pretty much does.
The adventure tale was being excitingly billed as a “Lawrence Of Arabia”-style epic and now had Inferno Entertainment’s Bill Johnson and Jim Siebel on board alongside Pitt and his Plan B shingle with buyers at Cannes “flocking to the project” earlier this year. The thought was at the time, principal photography could commence as soon as Pitt completed his turn on “Moneyball” which shot this summer.
