February 01 Watch Brad Pitt’s Dark Story in a ‘Fury’ Deleted Scene

Last fall’s World War II action movie Fury, starring Brad Pitt, didn’t skimp on the raw, gritty reality of tank warfare. But not all of the dark details made it into the finished film.

In this deleted scene, shown exclusively on Yahoo Movies, Sgt. Don “Wardaddy” Collier (Pitt) delivers some key information about his past we didn’t learn in the movie: How he got the serious burn scars that we see on his back at one point.

New to the tank crew and in combat for the first time, young Pvt. Norman Ellison (Logan Lerman) asks his unit leader how he got injured, and Wardaddy tells him the tale. It turns out, the injury isn’t a war wound at all, but the result of a drunken car accident in which he was behind the wheel, driving his fiancée Rose and his younger brother.

Did Rose and his brother survive? See the rest of the footage, along with more bonus features, when Fury comes out on DVD/Blu-ray Tuesday.

January 29 Pitt in Negotiations to Star in Angelina Jolie’s ‘Africa’

Oscar winner Brad Pitt is in negotiations to play Richard Leakey in Angelina Jolie‘s drama “Africa,” an individual familiar with the Skydance project has told TheWrap.

Skydance declined to comment, while a representative for Pitt did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Pitt and wife Jolie recently teamed on her third feature as a director, “By the Sea.” They first worked together on “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.”

Oscar winner Eric Roth (“Forrest Gump”) wrote “Africa,” which is a biopic of Leakey, the famed archaeologist who became a staunch defender of elephants against poachers in Kenya in the late ’80s.

Jolie will reteam with her “Unbroken” cinematographer Roger Deakins on the project, which she’s also producing with Skydance’s David Ellison and Dana Goldberg, as well as Jon Peters. Production could begin as soon as this summer.

“I’ve felt a deep connection to Africa and its culture for much of my life, and was taken with Eric’s beautiful script about a man drawn into the violent conflict with elephant poachers who emerged with a deeper understanding of man’s footprint and a profound sense of responsibility for the world around him,” Jolie said in a statement last September.

January 29 World War Z 2 to start with a clean slate, shoot in October

Will WORLD WAR Z 2 be a completely different monster from the first movie? That could be the takeaway based on this interesting statement from the sequel’s screenwriter Steven Knight.

In an interview with Thompson on Hollywood, the Oscar-nominated scribe explains why he took the gig and how it differs from Marc Forster’s original:

“I thought, ‘why not? What fun.’ It’s not quite like the other, we’re starting with clean slate. When they’ve signed off we’re on.”
To me, “clean slate” indicates we won’t be picking up with Brad Pitt’s character, who at the end of the first film was happily reunited with his family after his long, arduous search for a zombie cure. But does it really make sense to make another WORLD WAR Z without Pitt front and center? (His production company, Plan B, will still produce.)

The article also notes that the film is “set to shoot in October for 2016 release.” J.A. Bayona is directing.

January 29 Pitt and Jolie contribute to $5.5 million Joplin donation

A foundation has distributed more than $5.5 million in donations that poured into Joplin after a May 2011 tornado.

The Joplin Tornado Fund administered by the Community Foundation of Southwest Missouri received just over $6 million in donations from sources as diverse as children’s lemonade stands to $500,000 from celebrities Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

Stephanie Howard, president of the foundation board, says about 54 percent of the funds went to organizations that rebuilt or repaired the homes of owners who didn’t have insurance or enough insurance, or to federal allocations to re-establish a house or repair all the damage.

The Joplin Globe report groups that helped with mental health and counseling, and those that cared for children while parents dealt with the tornado’s aftermath, also received foundation grants.

Read more. Note: It is my assumption that the donation was done via the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.
