As I first reported on November 16th, Universal’s State Of Play starring Brad Pitt was having strike-related problems because “the star isn’t happy with the state of the script”. Boy, was he ever. Universal Pictures just issued this statement: “Brad Pitt has left the Universal Pictures production of ‘State of Play.’ We remain committed to this project and to the filmmakers, cast members, crew and others who are also involved in making the movie. We reserve all rights in this matter.”
