Satirical War Comedy “War Machine” Starring Brad Pitt Headed to Netflix

(via Deadline)

You knew that Netflix was going to get into features and this is a pretty good way to start.

Based on the book The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War In Afghanistan by Michael Hastings, Brad Pitt will star in War Machine as a General that takes after real life former Gen. Stanley McChrystal. As it will be written and directed by David Michod whose resume includes such dark dramas like The Rover, you can expect this to go stark and dark with its comedy. 

Netflix will distribute the movie in 2016 after its theatrical run. By that time, we wonder if more war and comedy will continue to cross paths like they have with The Brink and Aloha.
