Pitt joins Fassbender and Ejiofor in new Steve McQueen project

Brad Pitt is set to join Michael Fassbender and Chiwetel Ejiofor in Steve McQueen’s upcoming film Twelve Years A Slave.

According to Screen Daily, Pitt’s company Plan B Entertainment will produce.

Based on Solomon Northrup’s autobiography, the film tells of a black man who was kidnapped in 1841 and forced to be a slave for more than a decade.

Ejiofor will play Northrup. Although Fassbender and Pitt’s roles have not been revealed, it seems likely they will play the two white men who perpetrated the kidnapping.

Fassbender previously collaborated with McQueen on Hunger and the controversial picture currently burning up the festival circuit, Shame.
