Brad Pitt Into 12 Years a Slave

Brad Pitt.

Brad Pitt may be contending with Michael Fassbender for a Best Actor nomination this year, but no hard feelings: He'll reunite with his Inglourious Basterds co-star for 12 Years a Slave, report Screen Daily and the Playlist. That's the next film from Shame director Steve McQueen, and it'll star Chiwetel Ejiofor in the true story of a New Yorker who's captured in 1841 and enslaved in Louisiana. Not yet known: who Pitt will play, or what he will be eating. [Screen Daily, Playlist/Indiewire]
