For years — since before the release of The Tree of Life — we’ve heard about Terrence Malick‘s planned documentary film Voyage of Time, to be released in full IMAX format. But most of what we’ve heard about the film is that it is coming eventually, with little in the way of actual specifics. We know Brad Pitt narrates the film, and that it will explore the full span of time, and that’s about it. Now the Malick IMAX documentary Voyage of Time has been formally announced, and in fact there are two official versions, one for IMAX distribution, and one for regular theaters. More details are below.

Broad Green Pictures and IMAX are working with Sophisticated Films and Wild Bunch to provide final financing for Voyage of Time, with Broad Green set to distribute the film in North America after its initial IMAX run.

A press release announces that there will be two versions of the film: one IMAX version narrated by Pitt, and another, possibly longer cut, narrated by Cate Blanchett.

VOYAGE OF TIME is a celebration of the universe, displaying the whole of time, from its start to its final collapse. This film examines all that occurred to prepare the world that stands before us now: science and spirit, birth and death, the grand cosmos and the minute life systems of our planet. Malick is working first in the IMAX format for a 40-minute version with scientific narration by Brad Pitt, followed by a 35mm feature-length version with narration by Cate Blanchett.

Plan B’s Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner will reunite with Selma’s David Oyelowo. Company is coming involved in Nightingale in an unspecified capacity, joining with BN Films and producers Josh Weinstock, Katrina Wolfe (of BN Films) and director Elliott Lester. Details of the deal are still being worked out, but the filmmakers have confirmed that Plan B will will be active partners in the distribution and promotion of the picture. Nightingale is a provocative drama that probes the darkest corners of a disturbed mind. Oyelowo plays Peter Snowden, a man obsessively in love with an old army friend. As he prepares to reunite with the object of his affection, Peter begins to spiral downwards — with fatal results. Oyelowo revealed this at the Santa Barbara Film Festival. The pic needs a domestic distributor and Plan B, which produced 12 Years A Slave and Selma, can certainly be helpful in that regard.

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.

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.

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.

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.

During periods of his career, Martin Scorsese has enjoyed working with one lead actor over and over again. In the Seventies, Eighties and Nineties, that actor was Robert De Niro. In the last two decades, it was Leonardo DiCaprio. However, the three have never worked together on a feature film. That’s the gag in a series of commercials for two casinos in Manila, Philippines.

Scorsese directed the commercials, which star DiCaprio and De Niro as themselves, competing for a same role. However, these are not just commercials. These are basically trailers for a short film called The Audition that will also bring Brad Pitt into the mix. Yes, it’s a Martin Scorsese directed short starring DiCaprio, De Niro and Pitt. And rumor has it, each actor made over $10 million for the work. Check out the Martin Scorsese Leonardo DiCaprio Robert De Niro commercials below.

Thanks to The Film Stage for the heads up. Here are the two trailers, featuring lots of same footage, but each for a different casino owned by the same company: The City of Dreams in Manila and Studio City in Macau. In the second clip, you see a tease of Brad Pitt and a press release about the production confirms he’ll be appearing in the final film which will premiere later this year. Here’s a quote from Brett Ratner, a producer on the project:

This short film is a historic event because it is the first film ever to star such legendary actors as Robert De Niro, Leonardo Dicaprio and Brad Pitt in one film together.
