The 48-year-old actor is currently working on a feature which is based on the true story of how IBM's 1933 chief executive Thomas Watson entered into a strategic alliance with the Nazis, reported Ace Showbiz.
Pitt's Plan B production company is shopping the project around, and sources say he has attached himself to star in the project in order to attract directors. Besides preparing this political movie, Pitt has been tapped to star in Steve McQueen's star-studded drama "12 Years a Slave".
His other upcoming films include "Killing Them Softly" and "World War Z" which both have been pushed back to November 30 this year and June 21, 2013 respectively.
