Add Brad Pitt to the list of celebrities grounded from appearances due to the volcano.

The actor was scheduled to appear this evening in New York at a tribute dinner, sponsored by the government of Tanzania, in honor of his brother Doug Pitt’s humanitarian work.

But Brad Pitt was traveling from Europe – or trying to. His plane has been grounded, like thousands of others, thanks to the power of the volcano beneath Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull glacier.

Doug Pitt, a professional photojournalist, is a director of Africa 6000 International, which has been active in supplying fresh water to those in need, according to its web site.

“Adventureland” writer-director Greg Mottola has been hired by Paramount to write the screenplay for its adaptation of “Important Artifacts.”

A little over a year ago, the studio won an auction for the rights to Leanne Shapton’s book — full title: “Important Artifacts and Personal Property From the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion and Jewelry” — which Farrar Straus & Giroux had just published.

Brad Pitt and Natalie Portman quickly became attached to star in what Mottola will spin into a romantic comedy. The stars are also producing through their respective banners, Plan B and Handsomecharlie Films.

Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life, which stars Pitt, was long expected to make the cut, but was suspiciously absent when the entrants were announced at a press conference this morning. Festival director Thierry Fremaux said that he saw a rough cut of the film a few months ago but that it was not quite ready for the curtain to rise.

Terrence Malick’s Tree Of Life is rumoured to be featured in the Cannes Film Festival line-up for this year that’s set to be announced tomorrow – but you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who knows much about the film. That’s why we are thrilled to be able to share a few tidbits that Brad Pitt let slip about the film he calls “a bit ambitious”, which may enlighten you a little further.

When we asked him if this was a science fiction film (yes, even that is in doubt), Pitt replied, “Well, in a way. It’s this little tiny story of a kid growing up in the 50s with a mother who’s grace incarnate and a father who’s oppressive in nature. So he is negotiating his way through it, defining who he’s gonna be when he grows up. And that is juxtaposed with a little, tiny micro-story of the cosmos, from the beginning of the cosmos to the death of the cosmos. So that’s where the sci-fi – or the sci-fact – comes in.”
