CATEGORIES Movie NewsThe handsome cast of '12 Years a Slave' just got more handsome. Screen Daily reports that Brad Pitt has joined previously announced Michael Fassbender and Chiwetel Ejiofor in the Steve McQueen-directed film. 'Slave' -- which Pitt will produce under his Plan B productions moniker -- focuses on a New York man (Ejiofor) who gets kidnapped in 1841, only to be rescued more than a decade later from a cotton plantation in Louisiana. It marks the third collaboration between Fassbender and McQueen (after 'Hunger' and the upcoming 'Shame') and is a reunion for Fassbender and Pitt as well; the pair co-starred in Quentin Tarantino's 'Inglourious Basterds.'
