Brad Pitt, who last starred in “Legends of the Fall” for TriStar, will receive what sources say is $8 million for the company’s “Seven Days in Tibet,” to be directed and produced by Jean-Jacques Annaud.

The project, expected to go before the cameras early next year, is based on the life of mountaineer Heinrich Harrar, who during World War II was captured by the British in the Himalayas. He escaped by foot into Tibet, where he became a friend of the Dalai Lama.

Annaud was previously on the ill-fated Jon Peters project “Mistress of the Seas” at Columbia Pictures, which is jokingly referred to as the “Waterworld” of development projects because of its huge development expense.
