Brad Pitt as Steve McQueen?
Hate to post two items in a row with question marks in the headline, but that’s all we have to work with on a slow news day. ScreenRant cobbles together fresh rumors for a story they’ve been following since January. A few months ago, McQueen’s widow said she’d like to see Daniel Craig portray the King of Cool. That sounded like brilliant casting but, alas, it looks like the producers have their own ideas.
According to The Examiner, Pitt is, ‚Äúabout to sign on,‚Äù to play McQueen, but nothing is said of the reason why he was chosen. There is speculation that it‚Äôs because of Pitt‚Äôs resemblance to McQueen (he‚Äôs not exact, but who is?), as well as him sharing love with McQueen for, ‚Äúbeautiful women, fast cars and motorcycles.‚Äù
I’m surprised Daniel Craig doesn’t share the same love for ‚Äúbeautiful women, fast cars and motorcycles.” but I guess that’s why I don’t have a job at The Examiner.
