Brad Pitt, Denzel Washington Sweet On Candy Store

Denzel Washington and Brad Pitt may have scored powerfully on the Most Valuable Stars list, placing at No. 4 and No. 5, but even so, you know what they say about safety in numbers. And so it is that THR reports both A-listers are in early talks to star in Candy Store, a crime thriller to be directed by Stephen Gaghan (Syriana) about a deep cover operative who tries to start over with a new life, but can't elude the organization he tried to topple. Tasty.
