    Brad Pitt to Star as General McChrystal in ‘The Operators’ Movie
    Brad Pitt will star and produce the film adaptation of journalist Michael Hastings’ 2012 book The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan, which gave a behind-the-scenes account of the recalcitrant General Stanley McChrystal from when Hastings was researching his award-winning Rolling Stone article “The Runaway General.” Director David Michôd (Animal Kingdom, Hesher) will helm the movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

    My initial reactions were that, this is a film I can watch in the theatres. It’s Pitt. Not Gasnier or lately, Bigelow.

    I am torn on this one. I like the idea but not the choice of director. This should be in Spielberg or Kathryn Bigelow’s hands but I will give this a shot.

    Neither one needs to direct another military or war picture. My problem with this project is that Brad is playing an Obama-bash-er.

    Brad Pitt has done well with taking characters who seem and are written as kinda boring (Moneyball), so I think he’ll do well with this.  Beyond the Rolling Stones interview that cost McChrystal his job, I don’t know much about his personality.  I strongly disliked the ham that was Animal Kingdom, so I’m not sure how good this can get.

    Wow so Pitt will be bashing his own cousin?
