Latest comic book movie rumour has Brad Pitt in line to play “Captain America”. Many have said it’s about as factual as an Andrew Dice Clay movie plot, and Aint it Cool corroborate its bulldust today.
Says Harry, “I knew that last I heard it was tied up in a "Rights Issue" and was at no point in development until that hurdle was cleared. Got the drop on this story 2 days ago, but waited till today to find time after the holiday weekend to call Avi Arad to see what was going on with the star-spangled one.
"So Avi, what’s this Captain America – Brad Pitt thing?"
"Harry, I don’t even know where they are getting this stuff from? As you know we are doing nothing with Captain America right now till we clear up the ‘Rights Issues’. We want to do some amazing things with CAPTAIN AMERICA, but till everything is clear we are concentrating on other projects as you know."
“I told him about the SKY NEWS piece and he said that he had been being called by the press about the rumor and he has been giving no comments, but that Brad Pitt is most definitely not signed on to play CAPTAIN AMERICA right now. Apparently he’s never talked with Pitt about it, but that if Brad wants to play Captain America, Avi would definitely talk with him about it, but as of now… there isn’t anything to talk with him about because till the rights are cleared it is essentially wasted breath.
“Ok… so Brad Pitt isn’t playing CAPTAIN AMERICA, there is no script, no director and no film set up because the ‘Rights Issues’ are still being worked out and as we all remember on SPIDER-MAN, these things take time. Lots of time”
