    Brad Pitt ‘F1’ Movie Revs Up Promo Engines A Year Before Release With Teaser – Watch

    (7/7/24) (Video) Looking to lasso a potential Top Gun: Maverick at the box office in the next Joseph Kosinski directed movie, Apple and Warner Bros have dropped the first teaser to the Brad Pitt-starring F1 roughly a year before its June 25, 2025 offshore release (June 27 U.S./Canada).

    In the trailer, Pitt’s F1 driver tells his engineer, played by Kerry Condon, “We need to build our car for combat,” specifically a car that can beat the rivals on the corners, not the straights.

    Condon’s character responds, “How am I supposed to make that safe?”

    Pitt retorts, “Who said anything about safe?"

    The fast-paced pov teaser is set to Queen’s “We Will Rock You.” The trailer ends in a cliffhanger, arguably, knowing that there’s plenty of peril in the sport.

    Ford v. Ferrari, which starred Matt Damon and Christian Bale, proved that star-studded race car movies with great characters can work at the box office, that pic opening to $31.4M stateside in 2019 and finaling at $117.6M domestic, $225.5M global. That seemed to end the curse set by the 2013 Ron Howard directed, Chris Hemsworth starring Rush which did less than $27M at the domestic B.O.

    The title to F1 was made official two days ago, with the teaser dropping. Pitt returned over the weekend to shoot the movie at the British Grand Prix in full racing suit.

    Deadline first reported that the F1 package was snapped up by Apple for $130 million-$140 million, before above-the-line compensation.

    Pic also stars Damson Idris, Javier Bardem, Tobias Menzies, Sarah Niles, Kim Bodnia and Samson Kayo.

    Kosinski directs and produces the feature alongside Jerry Bruckheimer and Chad Oman of Jerry Bruckheimer Films; Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner for Plan B Entertainment; and Lewis Hamilton under his Dawn Apollo Films banner. The film is made in collaboration with Formula 1 and the F1 community, including the 10 F1 teams and their drivers, the FIA and race promoters. Copper CEO Penni Thow serves as executive producer.

    Brad Pitt's movie about Formula 1 will simply be called 'F1'

    (7/5/24) Brad Pitt's movie about Formula 1 coming to cinemas next year will simply be called “F1,” the racing series said Friday.

    Seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton is a co-producer of the project, which collected footage at F1 circuits around the world this year and last.

    Footage was taken at Silverstone — home of the British Grand Prix — and at the Hungaroring near Budapest; as well as the historic Spa Francorchamps in Belgium; Japan’s popular Suzuka track; and Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina circuit.

    Pitt was at Silverstone on Friday and walked through the paddock area.

    In the film, the 60-year-old American plays a former driver who returns to F1 alongside a rookie teammate, who is played by London-born actor Damson Idris. Their fictional team is called APXGP.

    The film is directed by Joseph Kosinski of “Top Gun: Maverick” fame.

    The film will be released next June, F1 said in a statement.

    Apple Original Films’ Formula 1 Brad Pitt Movie Lands Summer 2025 Global Theatrical Release With Warner Bros

    (6/17/24) An Apple Original Films title is heading to the big screen for the sixth time with the June 27, 2025 release of Joseph Kosinski‘s Formula 1 movie starring Brad Pitt. Warner Bros. has won the rights to handle both domestic and overseas. This follows Paramount releasing Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon ($157M WW), Universal with Argylle ($96.2M WW), and Sony with Napoleon ($221.3M WW), Fly Me to the Moon (July 12), and Wolfs (Sept. 20).

    The F1 package was snapped up by Apple for $130 million-$140 million, before above-the-line compensation.

    Pic will get a June 25, 2025 offshore release. Imax venues are included in the mix for the latest from the Top Gun: Maverick filmmaker and producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment is also producer with 7x F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton’s Dawn Apollo Films banner. The movie was made in collaboration with Formula 1, with filming taking place at races on the sport’s calendar.

    Pitt plays a former driver who returns to Formula 1, alongside Damson Idris as his teammate at APXGP, a fictional team on the grid, the feature has been shot during actual Grand Prix weekends as the team competes against the titans of the sport. Also starring are Academy Award-nominee Kerry Condon, Academy Award-winner Javier Bardem, and Emmy Award-winner, Golden Globe Award nominee Tobias Menzies, Sarah Niles, Kim Bodnia and Samson Kayo.

    Kosinski directs and produces the feature alongside Jerry Bruckheimer and Chad Oman of Jerry Bruckheimer Films; and Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner for Plan B Entertainment, and Lewis Hamilton under his Dawn Apollo Films banner. Academy Award-nominee Ehren Kruger (Top Gun: Maverick) penned the screenplay. Copper CEO Penni Thow serves as executive producer.

    Brad Pitt Countersued in Winery Case, Allegedly Made It a Personal Piggy Bank

    (5/14/24) Brad Pitt is being countersued by the company Angelina Jolie is trying to sell her winery shares to -- and they're claiming he's been misappropriating funds and being deceitful.

    The actor just got slapped with a countersuit by Tenute del Mondo ... which Brad already sued by claiming they had no right to receive Angie's shares in Chateau Miraval, and which has been dragging on in court for a while.

    In new court docs, obtained by TMZ, Tenute has now filed its own claim against Brad and his company -- alleging they have been using Chateau Miraval as a personal piggy bank for years ... and cutting into their own bottom line as new co-owners of the winery.

    Tenute claims Brad has been siphoning tons of cash from the winery business to fund his own ventures and passion projects ... including using more than $1 million to renovate a pool that only he uses, as well as paying for a recording studio, a cosmetics line and a gin brand he's investing in.

    Tenute says BP and co. have been hiding much of this activity in the books ... and that even now, Brad won't fork over the full finances.

    They're claiming Brad has also shut them out of the business operations in general -- and is making their involvement with winery next to impossible as he continues to battle his estranged wife in court. Of course, they've been going back and forth at length for a while.

    Tenute is asking for major damages. We've reached out to Brad's team ... no word back yet.

    update 3:14 PM PT -- Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ, Brad Pitt's side is scoffing at Tenute's countersuit -- as they feel they only tried getting into the Chateau Miraval biz because of his name-recognition and deep involvement with the company ... which they're now trying to smear.

    We're told Chateau Miraval is only as successful as it is because of how Brad has run it -- and the notion he plundered it for his own personal gain is absurd and nonsensical ... as it would only hurt him if he did the things they're claiming he did.

    Bottom line ... we're told BA feels Tenute (a subsidiary of Stoli Group) is blowing hot air that it's tried litigating in other courts to no avail -- and that Brad isn't sweating their accusations.

    Brad Pitt security guard alleges Angelina Jolie told couple’s kids to ‘avoid’ dad during custody visits

    (5/9/24) The legal battle between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie over Chateau Miraval continues to divulge details of the warring couple’s personal lives.

    In the latest filing in the winery war, a former guard for the couple alleges in a declaration that Jolie was “overheard” by security staffers telling the couple’s kids to avoid Pitt during custody visits with their dad.

    Tony Webb — a veteran of the UK’s Royal Marines and British Army’s Special Air Service who later went into private security — says in court documents filed on Thursday by Pitt’s lawyers that, “Between 2000 and 2020, I provided varying degrees of personal security for Angelina Jolie and her family, and I currently provide services for Brad Pitt.”

    Webb alleges that his job when he worked for the couple included, “running security for [Jolie] and the family whenever they left the United States,” as well as getting people to sign NDAs for Jolie, including hotel staffers.

    After Pitt and Jolie split in 2016, Webb’s firm, SRS Global, continued to provide security for the “Maleficent” star and her children. (The stars were in a nearly five year legal battle for custody of their six kids.)

    Webb recalls that after Pitt and Jolie broke up, his business relationship with Jolie went south when Webb was told by Jolie’s assistant, Michael Vieira, that two independent contractors for his security firm “might be testifying in the family court case.”

    Webb says in the court docs that Jolie’s assistant then, “asked me to stop these two individuals from testifying. I understood that Mr. Viera was making this request on behalf of Ms. Jolie.”

    Webb adds that, “I explained to Mr. Vieira that I had no power to stop them because they were independent contractors and not employees of SRS Global. Mr. Vieira then told me that his call should serve as a reminder that those individuals had entered into non-disclosure agreements with Ms. Jolie and that I should remind them of that and tell them that if they testified in the family law case, Ms. Jolie would sue them.”

    Webb further states in LA Superior Court papers filed by Pitt’s lawyers, “I communicated this message to the two individuals over the phone and they both told me that they planned to testify. One of the two individuals, Ross Foster, specified that he intended to testify regardless of the NDA, if he received a court subpoena. When Mr. Foster told me this, he also told me that if asked, he would testify about statements he overheard that Ms. Jolie made to the children, encouraging them to avoid spending time with Mr. Pitt during custody visits.”

    He says that in the end, “I understand that Mr. Foster and the other individual mentioned above were, in fact, subpoenaed, and that both did, in fact, testify in the Jolie/Pitt family law case.”

    The latest allegations stem from the couple’s battle over NDAs.

    Last month Jolie’s side argued in court papers that she shouldn’t have to turn over all her past NDAs to her ex in their epic war over their $500 million winery.

    She claimed that Pitt wanted her to sign an unfairly “onerous” and “expansive” NDA, “covering Pitt’s personal misconduct, whether related to Miraval or not,” in order for her to sell her stake to him.

    The exes’ deal fell through over the NDA, she claims, before Jolie then instead sold her shares to a Stoli subsidiary. She has also alleged that he he was trying to silence her from speaking about allegations he was abusive to her and their family.

    But Pitt alleges she unfairly sold the stake out from under him. As part of their ongoing legal war, Pitt, 60, wants Jolie, 48, to hand over all her past NDAs — which she has argued against in court docs.

    Pitt’s side says in their latest court papers that Jolie has hatched a “ploy to turn this business dispute into a sideshow about family court matters.”

    And that, “Her hook is to allege that she was justified in terminating an imminent deal for Pitt to purchase her interest in Château Miraval, and in doing so breach her obligations not to sell to a stranger without his consent, because Pitt’s lawyers asked for an NDA to be included in the deal papers.”

    His side further says that, “Jolie then uses Pitt’s NDA proposal as an excuse to introduce into this case the unfortunate circumstances related to the dissolution of the couple’s marriage, claiming that the proposal engendered an ’emotionally devastating’ reaction in her that caused her to back out of the deal and sell to Stoli because it would have purportedly silenced her ability to speak about the personal matters.”

    Pitt’s legal filing by John Berlinski of Bird Marella argues that, “Jolie apparently thinks she can gain a tactical litigation advantage if she makes this case about family issues, so she has turned the NDA proposal into the very heart of this case.”

    Jolie’s reps did not immediately comment.

    Pitt is asking the court to unwind Jolie’s 2021 sale of her stake in Chateau Miraval to Stoli billionaire Yuri Shefler claiming it breached an agreement the pair had in place for her to sell to him.

    A hearing in the LA case is taking place on May 16, we’ve reported. A full trial is not expected this year.

    The Miraval case is also playing out in a Luxembourg court as well.

    The Hollywood exes have been fighting over the vineyard they purchased in 2008 ever since Jolie filed for divorce in 2016.

    The duo was married at the same French estate, but Jolie and the kids have not gone back since 2016.

    Angelina Jolie rips Brad Pitt for ‘abusive’ NDA request as $500M winery war escalates

    (4/26/24) Angelina Jolie says she shouldn’t have to turn over all her past NDAs to her ex, Brad Pitt, in their epic war over their $500 million winery.

    Jolie’s lawyers claim in newly filed court docs obtained by Page Six that a recent motion by Pitt asking to see Jolie’s NDAs with any third parties is “expensive,” “wasteful,” “unreasonable” — and even “abusive.”

    Jolie, 48, has argued in court docs that Pitt, 60, asked her to sign an expansive NDA in their scuttled Miraval deal because he was trying to silence her from speaking about allegations he was abusive to Jolie and their family, including on a flight from France to California in 2016.

    Jolie has alleged previously: “While Pitt’s history of physical abuse of Jolie started well before the family’s September 2016 plane trip from France to Los Angeles, this flight marked the first time he turned his physical abuse on the children as well. Jolie then immediately left him.”

    The “Maleficent” star is also claiming in new court papers that turning over other NDAs she has signed would be an invasion of privacy for the other parties — presumably including movie studios, brands and employees — revealing “contracts that include Jolie’s compensation or compensation she paid to third parties.”

    Jolie’s side has claimed Pitt wanted Jolie to sign an unfairly “onerous” and “expansive” NDA, “covering Pitt’s personal misconduct, whether related to Miraval or not,” in order for her to sell her stake to him.

    The exes’ deal fell through — over the unfair NDA, she claims — and Jolie then sold her shares to a Stoli Group subsidiary. Pitt has opposed the Stoli deal and alleged she unfairly sold the stake out from under him.

    Earlier this month, Pitt’s team filed documents in LA Superior Court stating Jolie should disclose other NDAs she has entered into with third parties, including her own personal staff. The “Fight Club” actor’s side has said these other NDAs will shed light on whether Jolie truly found Pitt’s non-disclosure agreement request to be “the deal-ender she subsequently alleged it to be.”

    But in the new court papers, Jolie’s lawyers respond: “Pitt apparently intends to argue that, over the past two decades, Jolie had or at least considered other NDAs with other people and entities, about other matters not in any way connected with Pitt’s abuse. He says he wants to argue that since Jolie considered and/or entered other NDAs over her lengthy career, his proposed NDA covering his spousal and child abuse couldn’t possibly have been the reason the deal collapsed.”

    Jolie’s lawyers further state: “To effectuate this plan, Pitt now demands that Jolie review every contract she has ever considered or entered over the last two decades to see if any contained any form of NDA (both non-disparagement and non-disclosure).”

    Jolie’s side argues turning over such exhaustive documents would also reveal private info on others, violating their rights.

    “By their nature, Pitt’s Requests seek to intrude on Jolie’s privacy,” says Jolie’s new filing. “The Requests seek contracts between Jolie (or any of her entities) and any other person or entity. Most, if not all, of these agreements will be employment-related contracts that include Jolie’s compensation or compensation she paid to third parties.”

    The documents also argue, “These third parties have their own privacy rights, and Pitt is not giving them any notice whatsoever to allow them to protect their rights.”

    The papers say that Pitt’s latest NDA request is “simply not relevant to this case.”

    Jolie’s lawyers also say that, “Forcing Jolie to spend the time and expense of gathering and producing all of this documentation is expensive, wasteful, and unreasonable — and the latest manifestation of Pitt’s abusive conduct toward Jolie. The Court should not allow it.”

    A hearing is taking place on May 16, we’ve reported. A full trial is not expected this year.

    The Hollywood exes have been fighting over the vineyard they purchased in 2008 ever since Jolie filed for divorce in 2016. A legal war over the estate has been playing out in courts in California and Luxembourg.

    Jolie’s team further states in their arguments that: “Pitt’s motion illustrates the harm and humiliation victims of domestic violence face in Court. Because Jolie dares to raise the issue as a defense in this case, Pitt seeks to dig up nearly two decades of contractual relationships to supposedly ‘impeach’ her reaction to Pitt’s attempt to cover up his abuse.”

    The papers also state: “Pitt wants to argue that Jolie entered NDAs with others, so there was no harm in Pitt demanding an NDA to cover his abuse. But there is a fundamental and obvious difference: In none of those other NDAs was Pitt trying to silence abuse of his own family. The Court should not validate this dangerous argument. This case will be decided by evidence concerning Miraval and the dealings between Pitt and Jolie — not by Jolie’s dealings with third parties on topics having nothing to do with Miraval’s sale. Pitt’s motion should be denied.”

    Jolie has said in legal filings that she and her family have never returned to the chateau since 2016, days before she filed for divorce. The duo — who wed in 2014 — share kids Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and twins Vivienne and Knox.

    Paul Murphy, an attorney for Angelina Jolie, told us, “For Pitt to equate common NDAs covering confidential information employees learn at work, with him attempting to cover up his history of abuse, is shameful. This case is not about NDAs in general, but is about power and privilege. All Angelina wanted was separation and health. He seems to always insist on a continuance of a fight. She deserves peace after all these years.”

    Per documents previously obtained by Page Six in 2023, Pitt previously alleged his “vindictive” ex-wife sold her shares of Château Miraval in spite of him after he was granted joint custody of their six children, though the decision was later overturned.

    A rep for Pitt did not comment.

    A source familiar with the “Moneyball” star told us of Jolie’s most recent filing, “This is a basic business dispute over Miraval into which she has repeatedly injected personal matters that have nothing to do with the case and are detrimental to the family.”

    The source added: “All that Brad requested was a totally limited standard non-disparagement agreement to protect the value of Miraval, for which he was ready to spend tens of millions of to keep in the family.”

    Brad Pitt Calls BS on Angelina Jolie's Restrictive NDA Argument in Winery War

    (4/5/24) Angelina Jolie is unnecessarily making a big fuss over a non-disclosure agreement Brad Pitt wanted her to sign ... at least according to Brad who says she, and all celebs, sign these all the time.

    The exes are still warring over Miraval, the French winery they co-own, and Brad just filed docs in that dispute ... refuting Angie's claim she walked away from an agreement to sell her share of the winery to Brad, because he insisted she sign a strict NDA.

    In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Brad doesn't deny wanting her to sign one, but he says there's nothing onerous or broad about the NDA he presented her. In fact, he says it's pretty rich for Angelina to complain, because her lawyer "proposed an even broader, mutual non-disparagement clause" to Brad in connection with their divorce.

    As for why he wanted her to sign one for the Miraval deal -- he says it's just good business sense. According to the docs, they both agreed an NDA was necessary to "protect the reputation of the Miraval brand."

    Translation: Brad didn't want to buy her half of Miraval, and then have her trash him in public, thereby, hurting the business.

    In these new docs, filed Thursday in L.A., Brad asks the judge to force Angie to hand over other NDAs she's signed, plus the ones she's asked other people to sign -- all to prove there's nothing especially bad about the one he proposed.

    As we reported, Angelina filed docs of her own on Thursday ... accusing Brad of physical abuse during their marriage -- and before the infamous 2016 private jet altercation with their kids. Brad has denied that allegation.

    Angelina Jolie's Lawyers Claim Brad Pitt's 'Physical Abuse of Jolie' Started Before Their 2016 Plane Incident

    (4/4/24) Angelina Jolie alleges, via lawyers in a new court filing, that ex Brad Pitt was abusive toward her prior to the 2016 plane incident that led her to filing for divorce.

    As part of the former couple's ongoing legal battle over their French winery Château Miraval, on April 4, the actress's legal team filed a motion seeking to release communications they say would prove Pitt, 60, would not let Jolie, 48, sell her share of the winery to him unless she agreed to a "more onerous" and "expansive" NDA.

    Within the new filing, Jolie's lawyers make the claim: "While Pitt's history of physical abuse of Jolie started well before the family’s September 2016 plane trip from France to Los Angeles, this flight marked the first time he turned his physical abuse on the children as well. Jolie then immediately left him."

    A rep for Pitt declined to comment to PEOPLE.

    "This is a pattern of behavior — whenever there is a decision that goes against the other side they consistently choose to introduce misleading, inaccurate and/or irrelevant information as a distraction," a friend of Pitt familiar with the litigation over the years tells PEOPLE.

    "There was a lengthy custody trial that involved the entire history of their relationship and a judge who heard all the evidence still granted him 50/50 custody."

    According to Jolie's side, the winery lawsuit would not have happened if Pitt had purchased Jolie's share when she made the offer. However, Jolie's lawyers claim Pitt refused the deal unless it came with the NDA and suggest the actor feared that sealed documents included in their separate, years-long custody battle could be made public without the NDA.

    "Jolie’s sealed filing, which included emails, summaries of the family’s expected testimony and other evidence, caused Pitt to fear that the information could eventually become public," her lawyers write, adding that Pitt wanted Jolie to "contractually bind herself to that silence" about his alleged "personal misconduct, whether related to Miraval or not."

    A June 2023 filing from Pitt's legal team, however, claims Jolie was the one who suggested an “even broader non-disparagement clause” as part of the deal, and Pitt’s team presented a “narrower” one “intended to protect the business.”

    “The clause also made clear that there would be no limitation on Jolie’s ability to speak in connection with Pitt and Jolie’s divorce or custody proceedings. It specifically provided: This commitment shall however not limit the ability, for any Party, to make any claims, filings or testimony in any legal proceedings.”

    The topic of the NDA came up last year in the court back-and-forth.

    A source on Pitt's side said in June 2023 that "the non-disparagement clause in the contract" was a "totally standard" business transaction; meanwhile, a Jolie source claimed Pitt "refused to complete the Miraval sale with Jolie unless she agreed to being silenced about the abuse."

    Jolie's attorney Paul Murphy said in a statement obtained by PEOPLE April 4, "Mr. Pitt refused to purchase Ms. Jolie’s interest when she would not be silenced by his NDA. By refusing to buy her interest but then suing her, Mr. Pitt put directly at issue why that NDA was so important to him and what he hoped it would bury: his abuse of Ms. Jolie and their family. After eight months of delays, this motion asks the Court to force Mr. Pitt to finally produce that evidence."

    Separately, another source maintains to PEOPLE that Jolie "does not want to be raising any of these facts, and she is doing it only because Pitt’s lawsuit against her is forcing her to defend herself."

    The source adds that "if this does go to trial, [Jolie] will be forced to use that evidence in the trial whether she wants to or not."

    In 2022, Pitt sued Jolie and her former company Nouvel for selling her half of the winery and going against an agreement he said they'd made about not selling without getting approval from the other. Pitt has accused Jolie of intentionally keeping him in the dark about her sale to Tenute del Mondo, whose parent company is spirits manufacturer Stoli Group, owned by Russian oligarch Yuri Shefler.

    He said that sale "jeopardizes the reputation of the business that Pitt so carefully built."

    Back when Jolie's legal team brought up the 2016 plane allegations in a response filed in October 2022 for the winery case, a source close to Pitt said, "It's incredibly sad that she continues to rehash, revise and reimagine her description of an event that happened six years ago, adding in completely untrue information to try to get additional attention for herself at the expense of their family."

    Pitt was never charged following an investigation into allegations of abuse on the Sept. 14, 2016, flight.

    In the latest filing, Jolie's lawyers write that the actress "never pressed charges as she believed the best course was for Pitt to accept responsibility and help the family recover from the post-traumatic stress he caused."

    Pitt and Jolie, who were declared legally single by a judge back in 2019, share six kids: Maddox, 22, Pax, 20, Zahara, 19, Shiloh, 17, and 15-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.hs

    Brad Pitt Roasts Pal Bradley Cooper Over Oscar Directing Snub: “He’s Used To It. He’s a Philadelphia Eagles Fan”

    (2/9/24) Brad Pitt was in top form last night as he presented honoree Bradley Cooper Bwith the Outstanding Performer of the Year Award during the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.

    First, he poked fun at the Academy’s seeming scattershot nominations this year for Cooper and Maestro.

    “Bradley’s nominated for three [Oscars] for producer, writer, actor,” Pitt observed before quipping of Cooper’s directing effort on the film, “apparently the movie directed itself.”

    Cooper, it should be noted, was very magnanimous when he spoke with Deadline’s Pete Hammond lasy month about his Oscar nominations.

    Pitt then continued on and hit Cooper where it hurts.

    “If it’s not [his year to win],” said Pitt, “Bradley’s ok. He’s Fine. He’s used to it. He’s a Philadelphia Eagles fan.”

    The midwest-raised Pitt then pumped his fist and mouthed “Go Chiefs!”

    The bit got big laughs from the audience and a joking rejoinder from Cooper offstage.

    “Man, that’s f*cked up!” he shouted.

    This isn’t the first time the duo has helped one another out on the awards circuit — or in much more important matters, it turns out.

    In 2020, when Pitt was campaigning for what would become his first acting Oscar for Once Upon a Time in America, Cooper stepped up to introduce his pal at the National Board of Review ceremony.

    “Thank you, Bradley. Bradley just put his daughter to bed and then rushed over to do this,” an appreciative Pitt said as he took the stage after Cooper’s introduction. He then revealed a deeper bond between them.

    “I got sober because of this guy and every day has been happier since.”

    Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie Divorce May Be Wrapping Up ... Major Step Takes Place

    (2/9/24) Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's contentious divorce could be close to coming to an end ... with each star taking one of the last key final steps on the path to a divorce settlement.

    According to court documents, obtained by TMZ, both Pitt and Jolie are serving their final financial disclosures on the other party ... which is noteworthy considering there hasn't been much movement on their divorce case for at least a couple years now.

    The final terms of any overall settlement of the divorce haven't been filed yet ... but Thursday's filings indicate that one of the most legendary marriages and acrimonious divorces in recent Hollywood history is finally coming to an end.

    Whenever dueling parties in a divorce submit financial docs ... it means the end is near.

    Remember ... Brad and Angelina first met on the set of "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" back in 2004 while BP was still married to Jennifer Aniston. The onscreen couple remained just friends through shooting though Brad separated from Jennifer about a year later.

    Brad and Angelina quickly shacked up together after his separation was announced, and they built a big family over the next few years -- with six children in their brood.

    Brangelina got engaged in 2012 and married in 2014 ... but Angelina filed for divorce just two years later in 2016, citing irreconcilable differences.

    In the same year, Pitt was accused of physically abusing at least one of his children -- even though he was cleared by authorities after an investigation ... and he denied the claims too.

    The divorce proceedings continued to stretch out well after that ... and a judge eventually ruled Brad and Angelina were legally single back in 2019. Other elements of the divorce have been playing out behind the scenes since then ... and now, in '24, the finish line approaches.

    Matters have gotten more complicated between Brand and Angie -- remember, in 2021, Angelina sold her portion of a winery she owned with Pitt ... a move that eventually led to Pitt suing her for allegedly not getting his signoff before selling to a Russian oligarch's company. That lawsuit is still ongoing ... and separate from their divorce case.

    While other legal battles may still be lingering ... it seems like the divorce is nearly a done deal -- and now, it's just a matter of time before it becomes official.

    Stay tuned ...

    Brad Pitt Reuniting With Quentin Tarantino In Final Film ‘The Movie Critic’: The Dish

    (2/2/24) Quentin Tarantino will be reuniting for the third time with Brad Pitt in the director’s final film The Movie Critic. Unclear if Pitt will play the title character, but I think he is. Last time out, Pitt won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for 2019’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and he also starred for Tarantino in Inglourious Basterds. I also think Sony Pictures will be back as the studio distributing the film, with Stacey Sher producing and a 2025 release eyed.

    Tarantino has been circumspect on the last movie, but he opened up a bit to Deadline’s Baz Bamigboye at Cannes in May, when the filmmaker presided over a screening of Rolling Thunder. He said at the time the movie was set in California the year of that film’s release, which was 1977, and that it “is based on a guy who really lived but was never really famous, and he used to write movie reviews for a porno rag.”

    The inspiration goes back to a job Tarantino had as a teen, loading porn magazines into a vending machine and emptying quarters out of the cash dispenser. “All the other stuff was too skanky to read, but then there was this porno rag that had a really interesting movie page,” he told Bamigboye. There was one critic in particular Tarantino liked, who wrote snarky and smart as the second-string critic.

    I’d heard Tarantino did quite a bit of rewriting since then, so we’ll see. I read his Once Upon a Time in Hollywood novelization, and it fleshed out the story of Pitt’s character Cliff Booth, who, it turned out, was as much a cinema fan as he was a stone killer when the stuntman work dried up. If Booth went from stuntman to film critic, that would make a lot of hardcore fans happy; like many of Tarantino’s screen creations, he’s too good a character to let go of.

    The pieces are still falling in place on the film, including where it will be distributed. But after the bang-up job Sony did on Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, including forgoing distribution in China and supporting Tarantino’s refusal to excise the Bruce Lee bout with Cliff Booth, it isn’t too much to imagine Tarantino stays in the fold. Stay tuned.

    Pitt is repped by CAA and Brillstein.

    Brad Pitt at Rolex 24 to film scenes for Formula One movie

    (1/26/24) Of course Brad Pitt is at the Rolex 24 at Daytona, the most prestigious endurance race in the United States.

    The actor is not at Daytona International Speedway as a fan though. He’s actually on track filming scenes for his yet-to-be-titled Formula One movie, and the storyline contains an arc in which Pitt, an aging driver, has returned to sports car racing.

    His presence has been a bit of a headache to many of the other drivers in the field, mainly because of the heavy security at the driver motorhome lot, where Pitt has a spot for his downtime during filming. IndyCar driver Scott McLaughlin complained he was denied access to his motorhome because he wasn’t carrying his credential for entry — an unusual rejection for an athlete clearly in uniform coming directly from the racecar.

    NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, a regular in the Daytona infield lot, said he’s been bumped to an overflow lot, same for many of the top drivers in the race. Among them? Former F1 champion Jenson Button and IndyCar driver Colton Herta, who wondered if he should ask Pitt for advice on how to make it into F1.

    They’ve all complained that the filming scenes have kept them awake at night as shooting begins long after the track has been cleared of the actual Rolex 24 practices. A filming session requires at least six cars on track at a time.

    Among them are three identically prepared Porsche 911 GT3’s painted as the actual movie car. The cars are also identical to the Wright Motorsports entry that will actually race in the twice-round-the-clock event that begins Saturday.

    The other cars on track are a Mercedes and a BMW that have been described as “non-descript cars looking like they are racing,” as well as a 1999 Lola V8 that is the official “camera vehicle” and rumbles loud enough to sound like a stock car and keep the drivers awake.

    Herta and Button both complained the filming has woken them up this week. Button had a practical view about the disruptions.

    “This race is going to be super cool and the lack of sleep is the only issue, but I’m in the cheap seats,” Button said. “I think we’re doing OK. We’ve got a big race coming up and Brad Pitt is playing a part in the event.”

    Jerry Bruckheimer, who also produced “Days of Thunder,” is producing this F1 movie. Seven-time champion Lewis Hamilton is both a producer and technical adviser, and the director is Joseph Kosinski, who directed “Top Gun: Maverick.”

    It is due for release in summer 2025.
