If the movie gods were fair to us, they’d unveil Robinson Devor (The Woman Chaser (2000), Police Beat (2005) and Zoo (2007)) in the year that ends in ’14.

Gist: Scripted by Devor, Pitt, , this is an adaptation of adventurer Jack Black’s 1926 autobiographical novel of the same name which tells of his experiences in the hobo underworld, freight-hopping around the still Wild West of the United States and Canada while he explores the topics of crime, addiction, criminal justice and human folly from various viewpoints. The drama is centered on the unusual friendship between Black (Pitt) and a young prostitute (Marks).

Release Date: Cannes if hopefully it’s first “pitt” stop.
