Brad Pitt reportedly is going to replace Heath Ledger in Terrence Malick's new drama film. According to Variety, the "Babel" star is in talk with River Road Entertainment to star in "Tree of Life".
It was said that though the deal hasn't been signed, the Hollywood hunk is more likely to join the cast of the drama movie. Allegedly, he won't get as much as what he supposedly earned if he didn't back out from "State of Play", in which he might earn 20 million dollars.
