I know I am rather late with the latest updates, but eh real life happens. Anyways, as you can see I have been catching up with all the Brad goodies. Stay tuned! Here is a lovely video of Brad arriving at the Venice Film Festival last week, promoting Ad Astra! Be sure to read the amazing reviews posted at the SB Forum!
“Brad Pitt was one of the nicest guys, hands down,” Miller remembered. “And for years afterward, even after ‘Thelma and Louise,’ even after he had really started to blow up, although he wasn’t Brangelina at that point, I’d run into him at the store.”
“We ran into each other multiple times and I didn’t want to bother him,” he continued. “I wouldn’t go approach him. And generally if he saw me, he’d yell out across the store ‘Jeremy!’ He’d come over and give a big hug and say hi and ask how we’ve been doing and we’d reminisce and he’d ask about you guys. It was just really nice that he was such a warm guy.”
Gold recalled, “He really did feel like a Midwest nice guy. And I kind of remember when we came for the table read, the next day, he sent muffins and thank-you notes to everybody for having a great time that week.”
PS. The SB Forum has been upgraded. Also, all inactive (never visited or not visited for over a year) have been deleted. This leaves a small bunch, but that doesn’t matter to me. Feel free to join our little Brad community, registration is quick and easy. You are all welcome!
HBO is developing “Paper,” an hourlong drama inspired by Jake Halpern’s essay “Pay Up,” featured in the New Yorker. Dede Gardner and Brad Pitt will exec produce through Pitt’s shingle, Plan B Entertainment, where Gardner serves as president.
“Paper” centers on a notorious ex-gangster and single father in Buffalo, N.Y., who is trying to reform himself by also serving as a professional debt collector. He finds, however, that life in the debt collection business can be just as lethal as the biz he’s struggling to leave behind.
Short-story scribe Wells Tower will pen the project and co-exec produce.
