Brad Pitt's World War II Movie

Paramount Pictures has given an awards season release date of Nov. 23 for “Allied,” Brad Pitt’s World War II romantic thriller.

“Allied,” produced by GK Films, also stars Marion Cotillard and is directed by Robert Zemeckis. The film is shooting in London, with production also taking place in the Canary Islands.

Zameckis is directing from a script by Steven Knight (“The Hundred-Foot Journey”). Graham King, who won an Oscar for “The Departed,” is producing with Zemeckis, and Steve Starkey.

Denis O’Sullivan, Jack Rapke (“Flight”),” Jackie Levine, Patrick McCormick and Knight are serving as executive producers.

Pitt is portraying an intelligence officer in 1942 North Africa who encounters a French Resistance fighter, played by Cotillard, on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Reunited in London, their relationship is threatened by the extreme pressures of the war.

Joining Pitt and Cotillard are Jared Harris, Lizzy Caplan (“Masters of Sex”) and Matthew Goode of “Downton Abbey.”

Paramount had not previously announced the title or release date of the Pitt-Cotillard project.

The studio also announced it will release “Florence Foster Jenkins” starring Meryl Streep as a delusional opera singer, on Aug. 12. Stephen Frears directs from a script by Nicholas Martin.

The studio has also moved “Ben-Hur” remake back a week to Aug. 19.
