Pitt and Duvall lined up for Hatfields and McCoys

Brad Pitt is going to be a busy boy for the next year or so. With Terence Malick’s The Tree of Life and baseball flick Moneyball already on his to-do-list, he’s also been linked to feuding-families pic, The Hatfields and McCoys . That’s according to Robert Duvall, anyway.

Speaking to Hollywood Elsewhere during press for Get Low , Duvall revealed that Crazy Heart helmer Scott Cooper had met with Pitt to discuss the project. He went on to claim that Pitt will be playing “the main guy”, while he himself will co-star.

Benjamin Button scribbler Eric Roth has supposedly written a script, while fans of Crazy Heart will be pleased to hear that T Bone Burnett has been approached to do the music.
