Captain America: According to Sky News, Bradt Pitt is up for the role of 'Captain America' in the new comic adaptation:

My spies tell me that Brad has inked on the dotted line to play Captain America in a big screen adventure film.

He said: "I wanted to make an all-out family movie - something that all ages can go to.

"And as a child it was my favourite comic."

Now, according to Ain't It Cool and their Avi Arad source, negotiations for this role, and the movie in general, aren't even close to being finalized:

"Harry, I don't even know where they are getting this stuff from? As you know we are doing nothing with Captain America right now till we clear up the 'Rights Issues'. We want to do some amazing things with CAPTAIN AMERICA, but till everything is clear we are concentrating on other projects as you know."

I told him about the SKY NEWS piece and he said that he had been being called by the press about the rumor and he has been giving no comments, but that Brad Pitt is most definitely not signed on to play CAPTAIN AMERICA right now. Apparently he's never talked with Pitt about it, but that if Brad wants to play Captain America, Avi would definitely talk with him about it, but as of now... there isn't anything to talk with him about because till the rights are cleared it is essentially wasted breath.

Ok... so Brad Pitt isn't playing CAPTAIN AMERICA, there is no script, no director and no film set up because the 'Rights Issues' are still being worked out and as we all remember on SPIDER-MAN, these things take time. Lots of time.

Stay tuned for more on these rumors...
