Hollywood Hunks Fight Over Docu Rights?



Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio both reportedly get involved in a battle over the rights to a documentary about credit card debt entitled "Maxed Out."

Both own well-developed production companies that are going rather productive lately, so seeing them stand face-to-face against each other over a film title therefore is very possible to happen, and this sure is one hot topic to talk about.

According to exclusive report by TMZ.com, Hollywood superstars Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio are both engaged in a battle over the rights to "Maxed Out", a documentary film exposing America's obsession with credit card debt which is currently playing in select cities.

Sources to the site revealed that Pitt's company, Plan B Entertainment, is aiming to turn the James Scurlock-directed piece of filmmaking into a feature film in the vein of "Fast Food Nation." One even claimed that a rep to the studio has contacted the helmer's agent expressing how Pitt truly enjoyed the flick's companion book, "Maxed Out: Hard Times, Easy Credit and the Era of Predatory Lenders."

On the other hand, the site learned that shortly after the call, Scurlock's reps received another from DiCaprio's production shingle, Appian Way Productions, who appeared to have the same interest in the documentary feature. However, a rep for DiCaprio has stated to the site that "This story is bull" and that "It sounds like someone is creating a bidding war to try and make a buck."
