Always one to make a scene with his arrivals, Brad Pitt attended the Los Angeles screening of the documentary, “Big Men” on Wednesday (March 26).

Looking cool in a summer suit, the “World War Z” stud sported a tan jacket and pants, going casual with a white tee underneath.

“Big Men” is directed and produced by Rachel Boynton, and its official synopsis reads, “The film’s central story follows a small group of American explorers at Dallas-based oil company Kosmos Energy. Between 2007 and 2011, with unprecedented, independent access, Big Men’s two-person crew filmed inside the oil company as Kosmos and its partners discovered and developed the first commercial oil field in Ghana’s history.”

Continuing, the sum-up states, “Simultaneously the crew filmed in the swamps of Nigeria’s Niger Delta, following the exploits of a militant gang to reveal another side of the economy of oil: people trying to profit in any way possible, because they’ve given up on waiting for the money to trickle down. So what happens when a group of hungry people discover a massive and exquisitely rare pot of gold in one of the poorest places on earth?”

Paramount Pictures and Plan B announced today that writer / director Adam McKay has come aboard to adapt and direct THE BIG SHORT, based on the acclaimed book by Michael Lewis.

Based on Lewis’ best-seller The Big Short: Inside The Doomsday Machine about the housing and credit bubble of the 2000s, the film will be produced by Paramount and Brad Pitt’s Plan B.

Pitt previously starred in and produced Lewis’ MONEYBALL, which earned an Academy Award®-nomination for Best Picture.

“Michael Lewis has the amazing ability to take complex formulas and concepts and turn them into page turners. Plan B and I connected over that breathless quality the book has. Very excited to jump into this,” said McKay.

Said Adam Goodman, Paramount Film Group President, “I am so excited as this project marks my third collaboration with Adam McKay – a tremendously talented filmmaker and one of my favorite storytellers.”

Said Plan B, “There are those rare literary treasures – as with “THE BIG SHORT” – that park in the harbor and you just wait, with hope. Adam McKay is a singular voice and talent and a ferocious mind – the vector of Adam and this book is what a producer dreams of.”

Brad Pitt is NOT being eyed for season 2 of “True Detective,” despite an inaccurate report circulating the Internet.

It seems that the rumor was started by a know-nothing blog trying to take advantage of the show’s popularity after the exciting season 1 finale.

The story spread quickly, in part because “True Detective” creator Nic Pizzolatto has remained tight-lipped about season 2, only revealing that it will be about “hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system.”

But here’s the real story: There is currently no talk of Pitt joining the show.

An impeccable HBO insider tells Gossip Cop that the Pitt rumor is “pure speculation by an outsider.”

When there’s actual casting news for season 2, we’ll be on it.

Read more. It was a pretty obvious rumor but alas.

A24 commissioned Kellerhouse to make some posters for Jonathan Glazer’s upcoming film Under the Skin, which stars Scarlett Johansson as an alien in human form, roaming through Scotland, “consuming” all she can.

I caught the film at the Toronto Film Festival last year and in my review I called it a “highly existential experiment”, adding:

[W]riter/director Jonathan Glazer (along with co-writer Walter Campbell) have loosely adapted Michel Faber’s 2000 novel into a story of an alien being come to Earth to harvest humans for sustenance and, in the process, finds compassion for her victims only to find with compassion comes injury. This, at least, is my interpretation of what I see as a highly cynical look at humanity, our judgment of others and mistreatment of those we don’t understand.

I’d call it a curiosity and a film that is likely to divide audiences and will certainly find larger appreciation in the art house crowd.

As far as my headline is concerned, according to an interview with Glazer at The Guardian, the story went through several iterations, one of which featured Brad Pitt as one of a pair of aliens masquerading as a Scottish farmer and his wife. The film eventually focused on the female character, Pitt moved on and now we have a finished project due in theaters April 4.

“Big Men” is a documentary film by Rachel Boynton who gained unprecedented access to the inner workings of the oil business. Boynton filmed a small group of Americans at Dallas, Texas oil company, Kosmos Energy. Boynton’s film covers the years 2007–2011 when Kosmos and partners discovered the first commercial oil field in Africa’s Ghana.

The film is a look at one of the poorest places in the world and what desperation can lead people to do. You’ll see Boynton’s closeup view of private executive meetings talking about billions of dollars and a militant gang in the swamps of Nigeria’s Niger Delta. Variety called the movie a real-life “Chinatown” or “There Will Be Blood.”

“Big Men” was the winner at Cinema for Peace, earned a Grand Jury Prize at Festival International, and was named official selection at Tribeca Film Festival.

NBC’s ads for midseason drama series Believe feature front and center its mastermind, newly minted Oscar winner Alfonso Cuarón, touting his best director statuette for Gravity. Meanwhile, the promos for another heavily marketed midseason drama that premieres within a day of Believe, ABC’s Resurrection, don’t even mention the fact that it comes from the producers of best picture Oscar winner 12 Years A Slave. Brad Pitt’s Plan B is behind Resurrection, with the company’s two other principals, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner, who shared in the best picture Oscar with him, executive producing the series. Just like Plan B’s 12 Years A Slave managed to top Gravity and seven other movies to land the biggest prize, ABC probably hopes its show would spark some ratings magic. And boy, does the network need some of that.
