Brad Pitt Once Shared 1 of His Favorite Films He’s Done Briefly Ruined Its Director’s Career

One of Pitt’s favorite movies was once received so poorly that it ended up costing its director years of work.

Brad Pitt has many critically and commercially successful movies to his name. But not all of the actor’s films are received fondly.

Dominik decided to adapt the project after a friend let him borrow the novel to read. He’d later convince Pitt to star in the feature, who he’d already been conversing with for quite some time about doing a film together. Jesse James also allowed the filmmaker to cast a big-named actor for the movie, something he usually didn’t do for his films.
