Brad Pitt is in talks to climb into “Tree of Life,” a drama Terrence Malick wrote and will direct. Pitt, who recently quit the Universal Pictures drama “State of Play,” would replace Heath Ledger, who was scheduled to star with Sean Penn in the Malick-directed drama, which begins production in the spring. Though Penn is booked to play the title character in the Gus Van Sant-directed “Harvey Milk,” he’s still expected to play a supporting role in “Tree of Life.”
