With James Gray pretty much finished with "The Immigrant," packing his bags and getting ready to head to France for its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, he's beginning to look at what might be next on his slate. When we spoke to the helmer last year, his brewing thriller "The Gray Man" was something he said could very well be his next picture. "It really depends on Brad Pitt's schedule and it depends on my schedule and how quickly I finish up this current movie and budget and all of those kind of boring factors. But it definitely may happen, and in fact it is more likely than not to happen," he said. And while the movie may move forward, it will need a new lead.

Paramount must be annoyed. Just a few weeks after the Entertainment Weekly piece on the much-maligned Brad Pitt-starring "World War Z" zombie movie played down the signal to noise on the “troubled production,” Vanity Fair has jumped into the fray dredging up more of the dirt on this runaway-freight-train of a blockbuster. To be fair, the "World War Z" story seems complicated, a series of many small and medium size issues snowballing into a near-disaster of a production, but in comparison, EW's feature is kind of a damage-control-y "nothing to see here, please disperse" response.

It was only last week that Brad Pitt was confirmed to lead David Ayer’s WWII tank movie “Fury,” but it looks like the A-list star was all the distributors needed to pick up the movie because it now has a home and a release date all set.

After hunting down Nazis in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds," it looks like Brad Pitt it doesn't yet getting his kicks out of World War II. He's returning the one of the defining moments in world history for a new movie, albeit one that is perhaps a bit more realistic.

Entertainment Weekly's got the goods on "World War Z," the new geo-political zombie thriller starring Brad Pitt that is scheduled to arrive this summer via Paramount and Pitt's Plan B shingle. At $170 million, it's the most expensive zombie movie ever made (going $50 million above its original budget) and the lengthy and complicated production was rumored to be in dire trouble last year.

With “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” hitting theaters this Friday with more Channing Tatum added, that leaves the Brad Pitt-starring zombie-disaster film “World War Z” as the last of Paramount’s troubled productions that had been pushed back from last year. With "World War Z"'s summer release date lumbering ever closer, the studio has released a new poster for the film.

More so than most summer blockbusters landing this year, "World War Z" has a tough battle in front of it. It might be based on a best-seller and be toplined by megastar Brad Pitt, but it's also a dark, serious PG-13 tentpole that could risk being too terrifying to hit four quadrants, while not having enough gore for the horror fiends. But perhaps more importantly, the film's surfing a wave of bad buzz due to a troubled production that allegedly saw Pitt and director Marc Forster fall out, a delayed release (it was originally set to hit last Christmas), and was apparently troubled enough that it saw the entire third act rewritten and reshot long after production wrapped with a bevy of A-list screenwriters, including Damon Lindelof, Drew Goddard and Christopher McQuarrie brought on with the hope of fixing the problems.

Brad Pitt Passes On David Fincher's '20,000 Leagues Under The Sea'; Director May Not Helm 'House Of Cards' Season 2 Episodes

A little clarification on THR's David Fincher/"20,000 Leagues Under The Sea" report. Yes, Disney is debating whether to shoot the 3D tentpole in Australia and the trade reports there are lots of financial incentives to do so, but Fincher did his location scouting (and met with Aussie federal arts minister Simon Crean) six months ago. And yes, Brad Pitt is not set to star in the film, but that's not because this deal isn't done. Sources tell us Pitt officially passed on the David Fincher project after initially agreeing to take the lead about a month ago (the always finicky Pitt strikes again).

Over the next few days, some of the bigger movies of the year are going to be unveiling their wares in front of one of the biggest TV audiences on the calendar.

So let's do a bit of recap: As you might remember, the studio put David Fincher on three-month hold last October, as they set about making a decision about the Jules Verne adaptation "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea." Certainly, there's been no word on the project since then, and while Fincher's name was bandied about for another, much higher profile Disney tentpole -- "Star Wars: Episode 7" -- it looks like the director potentially has something else in mind.
