Is Brad Pitt Bringing the Gulf Oil Spill to the Big Screen?

By: Celebuzz / June 24, 2010

Plenty of celebrities have pitched in to help in the clean-up efforts with BP’s catastrophic oil spill on the Gulf Coast. Brad Pitt is taking a different approach to dealing with the disaster.

The Inglourious Basterds star is reportedly considering making a dramatized movie about the ongoing leak, which has emptied untold millions of gallons of oil into the ocean since April. Pitt, naturally, has an emotional investment in the subject—he has a home in Louisiana, which has been affected by the spill.

The major hitch to getting the movie made, it’s being said, is that so far a good guy has yet to emerge from the saga, making it a hard sell to major studios.
