Brad Pitt To Play Super Hero For The Sake Of His Kids

Brad Pitt is currently promoting his movie opening this Friday, Quentin Tarantino's R-rated WWII movie Inglourious Basterds.

While talking with interviewer Ann Curry on Tuesday's Today show the father of six announced he will be providing the voice for an animated feature in which he will play a super hero who wants out.

Pitt says that movie will costar the voices of Tina Fey and Robert Downey Jr., and trade reports identify the project as Oobermind, from DreamWorks Animation and Madagascar co-director Tim McGrath.

An update since the Pitt-Curry sit-down also indicates that Will Ferrell has replaced Robert Downey Jr. The movie, now in post-production for a November 2010 release, reportedly opens with Pitt, as the super heroic Metro Man, being accidentally killed by the super villain Oobermind (Ferrell), who has a change of heart about being bad and so creates a new hero, Titan (Jonah Hill) – much to the confusion of a local newscaster (Fey).

It's not autobiographical, Pitt told Curry, who inquired if he might be doing the movie in order to appear heroic to his and Angelina Jolie's children: Maddox, 8; Pax, 5; Zahara, 4; Shiloh, 3; and twins Knox and Vivienne, 1. "It's just something they'll enjoy," he responded, "and that's cool."
