Brad Pitt was in talks prior to Heath Ledger‘s death to replace him in the drama Tree of Life, written and directed by Terrence Malick, after Ledger backed out of playing the role. Prior to his death, Ledger was reuniting with his The Brothers Grimm director, Terry Gilliam, on the new film The Imaginarium of of Doctor Parnassus. Pitt’s partner, Angelina Jolie, has signed on to an untitled spy thriller based on the life of intelligence operative Kathi Lynn Austin. A remake of the 1981 film Clash of the Titans will be directed by Steve Norrington. Amanda Peet has joined the cast of the new X-Files sequel. Shooting on Public Enemies, starring Johnny Depp as famed gangster John Dillinger, begins shooting this March in Chicago. Meanwhile, Depp’s Sweeney Todd director, Tim Burton, has signed a deal with Walt Disney to produce a 3-D remake of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. Should be interesting.
