The 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina making landfall on New Orleans is around the corner on Aug. 29, and Brad Pitt’s Make It Right organization plans to honor the day with the unveiling of a new tiny home.

Founded in 2007, Make It Right’s mission is to help build homes, buildings and communities for people in need, all with a focus on green living. Since it began, teams have built 109 LEED Platinum-certified homes within a 20-block area of the Lower 9th Ward, a neighborhood that was absolutely devastated by the hurricane in 2005. This will be the organization’s first tiny home.

According to a blog post by communications director Taylor Royle, the 496-square-foot high-tech mini house will have two stories. A living room, full kitchen, full bathroom and washer/dryer for laundry will be available downstairs, while the upstairs will hold the bedroom, closet and work area/desk.

It will also have solar-power, energy-conserving appliances and recycled countertops, among other environmentally-friendly features. And of course, hurricane-resistant features will also be incorporated.

“The Revenant” star Will Poulter is also in talks to join the young ensemble cast

Years & Years Album Launch PartyFresh off the success of “Straight Outta Compton,” Keith Stanfield has signed on to join Brad Pitt in Netflix’s political satire “War Machine,” TheWrap has learned. Will Poulter (“The Revenant”) is also in talks to join the young ensemble cast.

David Michôd (“Animal Kingdom”) will direct the film, which will debut in select theaters next year and stream exclusively on Netflix, which did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Michôd also wrote the movie, which is based on Michael Hastings’ bestselling book “The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan.” Pitt and his Plan B partners Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner are producing with Ian Bryce (“World War Z”).

“War Machine” follows a four star general (Pitt) whose impeccable track record lands him to command the American war in Afghanistan. Principal photography is scheduled to start very soon.

Pitt will be joined by Topher Grace, Anthony Michael Hall, Scoot McNairy, Emory Cohen and John Magaro.
Stanfield can currently be seen playing Snoop Dogg in “Straight Outta Compton.” He also co-stars in Oliver Stone’s “Snowden” and Don Cheadle’s “Miles Ahead.”

Motor racing in all its guises has proved rich fodder for documentaries down the years, offering gripping entertainment for even the non-especially-petrolheaded fraternity. The Brad Pitt-narrated Hitting The Apex will be hoping to match the narrative cut and thrust of recent docs like Senna and TT3D, with a look at the world of MotoGP. Pitt, a MotoGP fanboy, narrates the film which has a new trailer below.

Like those two docs, Hitting The Apex is touched by tragedy. Runs the synopsis: “Follow the intense rivalry between Valentino Rossie and Jorge Lorenzo, and explore the great friendship between Rossi and Marco Simoncelli, the rising star who tragically lost his life on the track. Marvel at the meteoric rise of young rookie, Marc Marquez, as he takes the sport by storm, despite suffering numerous injuries and enduring the fastest ever MotoGP crash.”

Directed by British documentarian Mark Neale, Hitting The Apex hits the cinema on September 2.

Brad Pitt found his military sidekick in his new Netflix feature War Machine. Anthony Michael Hall has been cast to star opposite Pitt in the satirical comedy from writer-director David Michôd (The Rover, Animal Kingdom). The project, which was inspired by the bestselling book The Operators: The Wild And Terrifying Inside Story Of America’s War In Afghanistan by the late journalist Michael Hastings, concerns a four star, “rock star” general whose lethal reputation and impeccable track record vaults him to command the American war in Afghanistan. While Pitt plays a character loosely based on Gen. Stanley McChrystal, Hall portrays the No. 2 in the military regime — Gen. Hank Pulver, who is also loosely based on McChrystal’s second in command Gen. Mike Flynn.

For those who have movie trivia at their fingertips, they’ll likely remember that at one point, Tom Cruise was attached to star in Guy Ritchie’s “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,” but it didn’t pan out. And while the movie wound up being made with two actors who are yet to reach that kind of A-list status, the filmmaker reveals that when he was first gearing up the project, he had another big name he wanted to play Napoleon Solo in the movie.

“My original idea for Napoleon Solo was…Brad Pitt was who I wanted actually,” Ritchie told Happy Sad Confused. “I wanted him to play the older role, and I wanted the Russian to play the younger role, so there was going to be an age disparity there as well. And then Pitt told me to piss off, and Tom didn’t, so then I had Tom. And then needless to say, ‘Mission: Impossible[—Rogue Nation]’ interfered with the process, so he was occupying too much of the same space so that fell apart.”
