Brad Pitt is in talks to star in an untitled World War II film.

The 50-year-old actor is negotiating a role in a romantic thriller penned by Steven Knight, which will be produced by Graham King through his GK Films banner.

According to Deadline.com reporter Mike Fleming, ''While it's not a done deal yet and not yet set with a distributor, I'm hearing it's serious and that a big director will be set.''

Pitt recently wrapped up filming Second World War epic 'Fury' which is set in April 1945 and follows the Allies as they make their final push in Europe.

Pitt plays army sergeant, Wardaddy, who commands a Sherman tank called 'Fury' and its five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines.

He stars alongside an A-List cast, including Nymphomaniac's Shia LaBeouf, 'Noah' actor Logan Lerman, 'American Hustle' star Michael Pena and The Wolf of Wall Street's Jon Bernthal.

Pitt previously starred in Quentin Tarantino's 'Inglourious Basterds', released in 2009. The film begins in German-occupied France and tells a story of two fictional plots to assassinate Nazi Germany's political leadership.
