The depicter of Greek hero Achilles in the drama action 'Troy' has been considered to be cast as the titular character in the Marvel's superhero adaptation movie.
Having portrayed the legendary Greek greatest warrior Achilles in the 2004 epic drama "Troy" probably opens up doors to the celebrated actor Brad Pitt to play superhero in feature film projects. The latest casting report coming from the Marvel's movie projects suggests that the 44-year-old is on the run for the titular character in "Thor".
First to break the news on the matter was Latino Review, which stated that Marvel executives have put Pitt's name into the consideration to depict the God of Thunder in the adaptation film. Though said to be eyeing the possibility to hire the former husband of actress Jennifer Aniston, Latino stressed that the offer has yet to be thrown to the star of "Ocean's" franchise.
Prior to the Pitt's speculation, words are circulating that director Matthew Vaughn who is attached to helm the project has cut out from the movie due to the expiration of his contract in December. However, the rumor has been faced with a rebuttal as many other reports claimed that the filmmaker has not indicated his leave in recent interview. Meanwhile, concerning "Thor" itself, the comic book adaptation of the hammer-wielding hero has been set for June 4, 2010 release.
