Brad Pitt entered 2010 with the famous shaggy beaded goatee that he started growing out in 2009. His scruff had already made headlines and earned pleas from fans who wanted his sexy face back, but it wasn't until July that he shaved off the mane to start shooting Moneyball. The return of his bare, sexy face was a sight to behold, though since then he's been sporting various stages of stubble. So let's take a look back at Brad's wild year in facial hair, from long and decorated to smooth and smoking hot. Also don't forget to check out all of the polls and slideshows in our Best of 2010 coverage! View Slideshow › »
In Touch is wrapping up an amazing 2010 of Angelina Jolie coverage. In the last few months alone, the tabloid claimed Jolie was a "tyrant" and "madwoman" on the set of her directorial debut, had allowed her children to become filthy-mouthed "monsters," was frantic about Brad Pitt and his female "Moneyball" extras, "betrayed" Pitt with her own sex scenes in "The Tourist," strained her family relationships by being concerned for Pakistani flood victims, and was jealous of Pitt's good looks. So it's no surprise the In Touch gang decided to squeeze in some more Brangelina baloney before New Year's. »

We’ve known this for awhile now, but Sony has confirmed Jonah Hill (Get Him to the Greek) and Channing Tatum (Dear John) will star in the upcoming adaptation of 21 Jump Street. Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) will be directing the film, which will be written by Michael Bacall (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World). Hill came up with the story with Bacall and has described it as being “a John Hughes movie with ‘Bad Boys’ style action.” Emma Stone was attached to star in the film, but recently had to drop out due to her commitment with the upcoming Spider-Man reboot. 21 Jump Street is currently set to for a March 16, 2012 release date.

I can’t believe it came out this year, but Miguel Arteta‘s Youth In Revolt hit theaters the first weekend of January and it dissuaded the infamous January/February curse of terrible films. It remains one of my favorite comedies of the year, and although it grossed less than the other Michael Cera-starrer Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, it actually turned out to be more profitable.
After being mishandled by the Weinstein Company, Miguel Arteta‘s next film is in the hands of Fox Searchlight, with a better outlook. The film just landed a February 11th, 2011 date (via Ion Cinema) and will open limited next to four wide releases including The Eagle, Gnomeo and Juliet, Just Go With It, and Justin Bieber: Never Say Never. This date gives us hope the film could possibly see a debut at Sundance Film Festival. Their initial line-up gets announced next week. »

An idea that’s not dum dum: Adult Swim has ordered 12 episodes of Ntsf:sd:suv, a comedy from The League’s Paul Scheer that parodies police procedurals. The concept began as a skit for Rob Corddry’s Childrens Hospital.
Mira Sorvino will topline Union Square, an indie about two estranged sisters. They should head on over to Chat ‘n Chew for some mac and cheese — that’ll inspire anyone to patch things up quickly.

Brad Pitt has exited James Gray’s adaptation of the non-fiction bestseller The Lost City of Z. The book centers on Col. Percy Fawcett’s attempts to find El Dorado and his mysterious disappearance during a 1925 expedition to find the city while trekking through the Amazon. According to Vulture, Pitt left the project due to an impasse with Paramount over compensation for Gray.
But Pitt has plenty else to keep him busy. A couple days ago, we reported that he had signed on to reunite with his Assassination of Jesse James director Andrew Dominik for the crime drama Cogan’s Trade. He may also star in an adaptation of Mark Greaney’s spy novel The Gray Man. Pitt has also been linked to an adaptation of Max Brooks’ book World War Z.

Back in January we were all anxiously eyeing Brad Pitt's goatee and comforting ourselves by saying, no, it was just for his role in The Lost City of Z, and surely he wouldn't let that thing mar his face forever. Well, he didn't-- he shaved it for his role in Moneyball, and quite possibly to find the roll of quarters he lost in there, but now it looks like he grew out the whole damn monstrosity for nothing. After years of waiting for the movie to get a script in place, Pitt has bailed on the project, reports Vulture. Apparently the problem wasn't the script but what Paramount was willing to pay director James Gray, whose last film Two Lovers suffered financially thanks to star Joaquin Phoenix's pseudo-meltdown during the publicity tour. Vulture doesn't specify how much Gray was asking for, but he's never been a guy who made blockbusters, »

The ensemble cast and the Pitt-Dominik reunion means James stars Casey Affleck and Sam Rockwell have been rumored for other roles, according to Deadline and THR. Javier Bardem and Mark Ruffalo are also being considered for what sounds like an intriguing assembly of top talent. Ocean’s 14 anyone?
The project is being unveiled at the American Film Market, which starts today and runs through November 10. Depending on buyers and availability, Trade could become Dominik’s next film instead of his Marilyn Monroe biopic Blonde with Naomi Watts. Pitt hasn’t selected his next film — it should be World War Z, »

One of the most beautiful films in the last decade was Andrew Dominik‘s 2007 western The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford starring Brad Pitt, Casey Affleck and Sam Rockwell. Deadline confirms an earlier report by The Playlist that we may be seeing all three team with the director team again.
The project is Cogan’s Trade, “a comedic crime saga” in which Pitt will produce and star as Jackie Cogan, “a professional enforcer who investigates a heist that takes place during a high stakes poker game held under the protection of the mob.” Casey Affleck, Sam Rockwell, Mark Ruffalo, and Javier Bardem are all rumored to join the ensemble piece written by Dominik.
