Brad Pitt in The Tree of Life

Story by Jack Foley

BRAD Pitt is in talks to star in action vehicle The Gray Man for director James Gray.

The Adam Cozad-scripted film was on Hollywood’s fabled Black List in 2010 and focuses on a CIA operative-turned-assassin (to be played by Pitt) who is targeted for elimination.

He is therefore forced to go on the run to elude teams of killers while trying to save the lives of the daughters who don’t know he exists.

Pitt will next be seen in Moneyball, which will receive its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, and is currently shooting World War Z for Paramount.
