Wow, this is going to be so embarrassing when he turns out to be a better actor than either of his parents. According to E! News, Brad Pitt cast son Maddox as the lead in Battling Boy, the upcoming action flick from Pitt’s Plan B production company. Based on the graphic novel of the same name, Maddox will star as the son of a god sent down to battle a city full of famous and new monsters. So, it sounds like that first part, at least, is autobiographical.
Ten-year-old Maddox joins other celebrity kids churning out the hits, like Jaden and Willow Smith, though we’re sort of surprised by the move; the Jolie-Pitt family always seemed relatively private. That being said, the premise does sound like a particularly awesome adventure movie for kids, and once Mad conquers action flicks he can go on to dominate every other genre once ruled over by Brad and Angelina. We’re about due for a Girl, Interrupted remake, right?
