Brad Pitt to Join Michael Fassbender, Chiwetel Ejiofor in Steve McQueen's Twelve Years a Slave?

Crank your man crush meters to 11: Brad Pitt is said to be set to produce and co-star with Michael Fassbender and Chiwetel Ejiofor in Twelve Years a Slave, according to a Playlist report (plucked from Screen Daily and verified by Pitt's production company, Plan B). The period drama is based on the life of Solomon Northup, an educated black man who was tricked into slavery in the 1850s and marks Fassbender's third collaboration with director Steve McQueen (Hunger, Shame).
