Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong'o in talks for 'Jungle Book'

Jon Favreau's live-action "Jungle Book" is eyeing some major star power.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, both Scarlett Johansson and Lupita Nyong'o are discussing joining the project.

Since "The Jungle Book" is the story of a boy who comes of age among animals, Johansson and Nyong'o would (obviously) be signing on for voice work. Nyong'o could potentially voice Rakcha, the wolf mother who adopts Mowgli, while Johansson would be the voice of the python Kaa.

The two actresses, should they both officially join the film, would co-star alongside Idris Elba, who's already been cast as the voice of the villainous tiger, Shere Khan.

Is this Brad Pitt's next role?

For movie inspiration, Brad Pitt is looking no further than his bookshelf.

The actor/producer, who just won an Oscar with 2013's adaptation of Solomon Northup's slave narrative, "12 Years A Slave," is now working on an adaptation of late journalist Michael Hastings' examination of the nation's military commanders.

Called "The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America's War in Afghanistan," Hastings' 2011 account has as its central set-piece the downfall of General Stanley McChrystal, who resigned after a damaging profile of him and his team ran in Rolling Stone magazine in 2010.

Now, Pitt's Plan B production company is teaming up with New Regency and RatPac Entertainment to develop the project. "Animal Kingdom" writer/director David Michod is attached to write and helm "The Operators." On top of producing, Pitt's expected to play the role of McChrystal himself.
