Well, he's certainly keeping himself busy, isn't he?
Brad Pitt may have just signed up for a new starring role in The Gray Man, but will reportedly also be taking a back seat as a producer in the upcoming film adaptation of Solomon Northup's 1853 autobiography, Twelve Years a Slave!
Steve McQueen will direct the flick, which is being produced through Pitt's Plan B, and will star Chiwetel Ejiofor as a free African American who is kidnapped and sold into slavery.
Wow! This certainly sounds like it's going to tackle some fascinating subject matter!
Definitely worth checking out when it's released!
