Brad Pitt is in early talks to star in an untitled World War II romantic thriller penned by Steven Knight.

No director or distributor are attached to the project and plot details are unknown but Pitt is obviously interested in that period in history (“Inglourious Basterds” and the upcoming Sony WWII pic “Fury”).

Graham King will produce the project through his GK Films banner.

Pitt, 50, can be seen next opposite Shia LaBeouf and Logan Lerman in “Fury,” which opens Nov. 14. The WWII tank drama, directed by David Ayer (“End of Watch”), tells the story of a battle-hardened army sergeant (Pitt) and his five-man crew on a deadly mission in Nazi Germany.

He is repped by CAA and Brillstein Entertainment. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.

    Brad loves 1911 pistols! He also loves WWII movies! But his gun grabbing friends are too chicken to ask him to take HIS GUNS AWAY FROM HIM and have Brad register all his guns to Big Brother. But those same Hollywood Tools don’t mind asking SERFS who don’t make millions to give up their guns! Even those anti-gun Hollywood Nutjobs sill have their own Personal Protection, that includes GUNS! What Hypocrites!
