At this point in his career, he can pick and choose what he wants to do and when he wants to do it, and Brad Pitt has signed on to star in “The Operators.”

Written and directed by David Michod, the forthcoming project will also be produced by the “Fight Club” stud and his Plan B partners Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner, so it’s safe to say it’s going to be good.

“The Operators” will be based on the book by Michael Hastings, dealing with the high-profile military career of General Stanley McChrystal.

And of course, there will be plenty of backroom deals, political wrangling and inside moves to shed light on the unseen realm of wartime practices.
