Brad Pitt to Produce and Possibly Star in True Story Movie About Holocaust


Brad Pitt


Pitt is preparing 'IBM and the Holocaust' and has reportedly attached himself to star in the film project in order to attract directors' interest.

Brad Pitt has just snatched another high-profile movie project. After recently filming Ridley Scott's "The Counselor" in England, the fiance of Angelina Jolie is now set to produce a big screen take on Edwin Black's New York Times bestseller "IBM and the Holocaust".

Courtesy of Vulture, Pitt, through his Plan B banner, is still shopping the project around to find any studios or TV cable to distribute it. Multiple insiders also say that the A-lister has attached himself to star in the Holocaust film in order to attract directors, but Plan B insists that the actor has not been formally tapped.

Published in 2001, "IBM and the Holocaust" is a critically acclaimed book which unveils how the multinational technology and consulting corporation facilitated the Third Reich's extermination of European Jewry.

The story follows the efforts of IBM's then-chief executive Thomas Watson, who formed an alliance with the Nazis and supported the Holocaust by implementing a series of punch cards based on national census data.

Aside from preparing this political movie, Pitt has been tapped to star in Steve McQueen's star-studded drama "12 Years a Slave". His other upcoming films include "Killing Them Softly" and "World War Z" which both have been pushed back to November 30 this year and June 21, 2013 respectively.
