Pitt in talks to join Penn on Tree of Life

Brad Pitt is in negotiations to join Sean Penn in the Terrence Malick flick Tree of Life.

Variety reports Tree of Life was written by Malick (who will also handle directing duties) and will be financed by River Road. Bill Pohlad, Sarah Green, and Grant Hill are producing.

Pitt (who was replaced by Russell Crowe on Universal Pictures’ State of Play) is in talks to replace Heath Ledger on Tree of Life – which is set to start production in the spring. Penn will have a supporting role on the film.
