Brad Pitt and Denzel Washington Could Enter 'Candy Store'
Pitt and Washington are courted to star in Stephen Gaghan's upcoming crime thriller film, while Jamie Foxx is rumored to be interested in joining the project as well.


Stephen Gaghan is courting high-demand actors to star in next film "Candy Store". The Hollywood Reporter shares the words that the filmmaker has set his eyes on Brad Pitt and Denzel Washington to headline the upcoming crime thriller flick.

It is said that Pitt and Washington are already in early talks to join the project, which is set up at Lionsgate Films. Multiple insiders stress that both actors are still far from sealing the deal since the discussions are in the nascent stage.

Gaghan is set to pen the screenplay in addition to working behind the lens. Should Pitt and Washington sign on to the project, it will mark the Oscar-winning scribe's most high-profile directorial stint since 2005's "Syriana".

In addition to Pitt and Washington, Jamie Foxx is rumored to be interested to star in the film. There's, however, still no official word to confirm the report of Foxx's involvement.

Described as a "two-handler" crime thriller, "Candy Store" follows a highly-trained operative who starts over his life in Brooklyn, New York as a beat cop. He later finds out that the global organization he's dedicated to fighting is also operating in his new backyard.
