Brad Pitt Will Play A Baby Role

Brad Pitt's face will be superimposed onto the body of a baby for new movie 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button', which is about a man who is born 70-years-old and ages in reverse.

Director David Fincher told Britain's The Times newspaper: "In the past you may have had different actors playing him at different stages of his life, but here I can use Brad Pitt throughout, just putting his head on different people's bodies.

"I really think that it will work. At least I hope it does, if not, it's going to look bloody awful!"

But the filmmaker is confident movie goers will be convinced by the computer wizardry used to make Brad a baby.

Fincher added: "I don't think an audience is going to be able to tell the difference between a film shot digitally or on film. "Technology moves on, and it's going to be vital for the film."

what on earth...? I mean, I know it's David Fincher, and I trust him and everything, but this seems too....trying to be Charlie Kaufman. Or it could end up like that awful Robin Williams movie Jack. Hopefully I'm wrong...*shudders*
