Brad Pitt Reportedly To Play Jerry Lee Lewis In Terrence Malick-Produced Biopic

    Here’s your weekly biopic news: Brad Pitt is reportedly in talks to replicate Jerry Lee Lewis’ Great Balls of Fire in a in-the-works biopic directed by the great Terrence Malick. Lewis already had one biopic made about him–1989’s Great Balls of Fire–but that was 21 years ago before the biopic boom happened. And Malick and Pitt’s reading of Lewis’ life might be less madcap than the Dennis Quaid version. Natalie Portman is also said to be attached to play the cousin Lewis married in the 1950s. [RS]
