Hollywood heartthrob Brad Pitt has joined the ever growing cast, which includes Michael Fassbender, for the Steve McQueen directed movie Twelve Years A Slave. Brad Pitt will also be heading the producing of the movie via his Plan B production company.
It is the latest in a string of collaborations between Michael Fassbender and Steve McQueen, who first teamed up together for the film Hunger. The duo also worked together earlier this year on the sex addiction movie Shame, which is set to be released on December 2.
The screenplay for Twelve Years A Slave was co written by Steve McQueen and John Ridley and the movie will also star Chiwetel Ejiofor. The film is based on a true story about a man who was kidnapped in the mid 1800s and sold to slavery. Twelve Years A Slave is set to be released in 2014.
