The man’s filmography list is extensive and impressive at the same time. He has been one of the few actors who has been able to balance between being commercial and artsy simultaneously. The American actor has wooed women and men alike with his good looks and charismatic personality. Add to that the man is a fantastic actor with three Oscar nominations to his name. He has never won an Academy Award in the acting department. He has won as Producer (for 12 Years a Slave) though.

4. Alpha

The film is said to be based on an idea by Daniel H Wilson(author of Robopocalypse). Plot details are under wraps, but it is known to be sci-fi survival story that has shades of Jack London, the author behind such tales as White Fang and The Call of the Wild.

5. Dr. Q

Disney and Brad Pitt’s Plan B are developing “Dr. Q” — a movie based on the life story of an illegal immigrant(Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa) who became the head of brain tumor surgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Matt Lopez, whose credits include the Civil War play “The Whipping Man,” has been tapped to write the screenplay.

6. Untitled Ryan Wash Project

Tony Kushner has come aboard to adapt He Wanted The Moon, a memoir by Mimi Baird and Eve Claxton. The project is a co-production between Brad Pitt’s Plan B and Cross Creek Pictures. Pitt is expected to play Dr. Perry Baird, a Texan Harvard-educated doctor who rose in the field of medicine in the 1920s. He focused on the biochemical root of manic depression at a time when there wasn’t much research on the condition.

7. Vlad

An edgy new Dracula movie titled Vlad which will focus on Dracula as a young prince when he was known as Vlad the Impaler.Music video director and photographer Anthony Mandler is in line to direct the project. Vlad has been in development for a few years now. But the progress has almost been unheard of now which is disappointing.

With a plague breaking out, the duo is forced to evacuate the planet with a hostile warship in pursuit. It is not clear yet whether Pitt will star in the film or not. But the actor certainly has the neck of acting in films that he produces as well, so it should be no surprise if he does.

9. Untitled Jerry Lee Lewis Film

This film has been in the talks and development for almost forever now. But Terrence Mallick is the proposed director for the film. And when it’s him, don’t be surprised if the film release a decade or two later. The man likes to take his time.

Yet another film which has been in talks for a very long time. Michael R. Roskam is expected to direct the film, with Brad Pitt starring as the protagonist. The film is said to be based on the 2010 writing by John Vaillant The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival’.
