According to a source, this time Brad seems to gained the upper hand, as he revealed that he had worked with the author Michael Lewis, on whose book his forthcoming flick is based, before also.
The two have bid on many of the same projects over the years and Pitt disclosed that he recently beat Clooney to secure the rights to the’ Law of the Jungle’ adaptation.
