Brad Pitt and David O. Russell tackling The Mission

Oscar nominated director David O. Russell (The Fighter) and Brad Pitt are being courted by Warner Bros to join The Mission, according to Deadline

The picture would tell the true story of the six-year mission in which covert American and Colombian operatives freed 15 hostages from a guerilla group in the jungle.

That premise brings to mind Russell’s gulf war masterpiece Three Kings, so here’s hoping he signs up. As for Pitt … sure, he’ll probably be good in it.

Lorenzo di Boneventura and Scott Z. Burns will produce.

Discuss: Would you choose to accept this mission?
