Brad Pitt signs with Netflix

On June 16, 2015

Brad Pitt has followed in the footsteps of Adam Sandler signing up with Netflix for an original film available on the streaming service. Inspired by the best-selling book The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan by the late Michael Hastings, the film will feature Pitt in the lead role.

Netflix has released a synopsis of the film:
“Determined to win the “impossible” war once and for all with a radical new approach, the general and his motley staff of commanders and press advisers race across the globe navigating delicate international alliances and troop requests, the charged battlefield of Washington politics, the voracious appetite of the media, and the day-to-day management of the war itself — all the while struggling to stay connected to the lives of men and women out in the field.”

Produced by Netflix and Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment company alongside producer Ian Bryce (World War Z, Saving Private Ryan), War Machine brings together Pitt with David Michôd, the acclaimed Australian writer and director of Animal Kingdom. Filming is scheduled to begin in August.

Netflix’s acquisition of Pitt’s film follows the four original films from Adam Sandler’s company, Happy Madison Productions. Sandler will star in each film which will be available for streaming on Netflix.
