Brad Pitt embarks on a Mission?
Brad Pitt could soon get a new film mission.
The Hollywood actor is said to be targeted to star in action-adventure The Mission, which David O Russell is also in talks to direct, reported Deadline.
The politically-charged movie centres on the six-year mission planned by American and Colombian secret agents to free 15 hostages, including three Americans and former presidential candidate Ingrid Betancourt, from the Colombian jungle, after they were captured by South American guerrilla group FARC.
There has been no comment from Warner Bros, who is looking after the film.
Brad, who was at the Cannes Film Festival to promote The Tree Of Life, has completed filming Moneyball and Happy Feet 2, and is currently working on crime flick Cogan's Trade.
