Brad Pitt to Star as General McChrystal in ‘The Operators’

Brad Pitt

It looks like Brad Pitt is very interested in the war movies lately. He is set to produce and star in the film adaptation of Michael Hastings’ book The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan.

The book tells the story of the rise and fall of General Stanley McChrystal, the commanding general of international and U.S. forces in Afghanistan.

The upcoming movie will be written and directed by Australian filmmaker David Michod. Pitt’s company Plan B will produce the film alongside New Regency and Brett Ratner’s RatPac Entertainment.

    I like Brad Pitt’s new hair cut very military and sexy on him.) Well, he looks sexy anyways, but this style is very manly, m-m-m-m-m! I like it a lot, hard to resist! I will be looking forward the new movie with much anticipation!

    I guess if following all the things that have happened lately in the world than it is a pretty obvious thing that Bead Pitt wants to perform in a movie about war. America as well as all the countries in the world likes to cherish her heroes, so eventually if performing very well in the movie, than certainly the movie will be successful, and if it will be successful than it means that a lot of people would see and enjoy it, what can be possibly better than that? People never forget things that amazed them and made them feel proud of their country. So if he will be the hero’s face American people would remember with pride, than why not? It is only an additional plus to his already quite successful biography. Well done Brad Pitt, well done!

    Brad Pitt never stop amazing me, but the bad thing is that since he got divorced with Jennifer Aniston, and is in a continuous relationship with Angelina, I have never felt good about him, or movies he performs in. And I honestly do not understand what is wrong with him. He used to be a good person, not pretending to be a good one, but he really was one. And now there is nothing left from that kindness. All he is doing is pretending, I think he has even lost the genuine meaning of who he is and what he is doing with his life, and I think that it sucks. There is no feeling worse than the feeling that you are not yourself anymore. So trying to escape this spirit condition with performing in a movie with such a meaning will not really help him feel better.

    I am wondering when will be that wonderful time than the actors and movie producers will stop making huge money on the tragedies that have made miserable millions of people by ruining or even taking their lives away? It is not fair towards all the other people in the world, as it will make them coming back into the things they want to forget. Brad Pitt of course wants to be a part of such a movie, as he perfectly knows that regardless of the meaning, the movie that will produce an ocean of emotions is really worthy to watch and enjoy. And this is the life’s truth, that when it comes to big money people are eager at forgetting and not paying attention to the things that their conscience is dictating them.
