Brad Pitt Circles ‘The Gray Man’

Brad Pitt in talks to star in The Gray Man Actor Brad Pitt is in negotiations to star in the New Regency thriller The Gray Man for director James Gray. We reported back in January that James Gray signed on to direct, but we haven't heard anything else on the project, until now.

Adam Cozad adapted The Gray Man from the Mark Greaney novel, which centers on a former CIA agent who has become an assassin. He takes on a dangerous mission to rescue his former CIA handler in Europe. Adam Cozad's screenplay made the Black List last year.

The Gray Man is the first book in Mark Greaney's novel series centering on the title character, Court Gentry. The second novel, On Target was released in September and the new book Ballistic hits the shelves in October.

20th Century Fox will likely distribute the thriller for New Regency, although it isn't known when production may start on The Gray Man.

The Gray Man was released in 2012.
