Brad Pitt No Longer Searching for The Lost City of Z

ON

Vulture reports that Brad Pitt will no longer star in Paramount Pictures’ The Lost City of Z now that he has signed on for Cogan’s Trade.

In “Z,” based on the David Grann book, Pitt would have played British soldier and spy Percy Fawcett. Fawcett left Victorian society to explore in the Amazon, and he became obsessed by the idea of an advanced civilization he called Z, which he believed existed in the depths of the jungle. Along with his son, Fawcett headed into the jungle in 1925 in search of Z and was never seen again.

Cogan’s Trade reunites Pitt with The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford helmer Andrew Dominick.
