His brother (Affleck) returns from Iraq and falls in with a ruthless crime ring. When he disappears, that simple man takes matters into his own hands, and sets out to seek justice for his sibling. Appian Way’s Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Killoran produced with Scott Free’s Ridley Scott, with Michael Costigan also producing with Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh. This has been a hot project since Ingelsby first sold the spec in a big money deal that came with DiCaprio attached to star and Scott to direct. The elements have shifted, but the Cormac McCarthy-style stark and simple revenge tale element has remained intact.

Even though Angelina Jolie cannot attend Brad Pitt’s premiere for his zombie-apocalypse flick World War Z, her presence looms large Monday during the Times Square-takeover event. The Oscar winner, 38, sends dad Jon Voight and brother James Haven to support her man’s latest blockbuster. After Brad wades out into the crowd to sign autographs and pose for selfies with assembled fans, the shaggy-haired superstar, 49, tackles the tough questions, like Melissa Etheridge’s criticism of Angelina’s pre-cancer double-mastectomy being hailed as “brave.” OK!

Melissa is an old friend of mine. I’m sure we’ll talk on the phone.” Still, he marvels at the choice made by his fiancé and the mother of their kids Maddox, 11, Pax, 9, Zahara, 8, Shiloh, 7, plus twins Knox and Vivienne, 4. “Oh yeah, I think it’s being vigilant, and it’s inspiring,” he says. “I found it very empowering instead of scary. It’s crazy—it’s the exact opposite.” OK!

I feel like I can read his mind as he glances away, considering they got to know each other while filming Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2004 when he was still married to Jennifer Aniston. His gaze returns. He stammers, “Ours was a—we didn’t have an official first date, so I couldn’t tell you.” OK!

Not everyone agrees. Melissa Etheridge, who battled breast cancer eight years ago, has the same type of genetic mutation as Angelina—but she says there are other options besides major surgery. "I wouldn’t call it the brave choice," says the 52-year-old singer. "I actually think it’s the most fearful choice you can make when confronting anything with cancer."
Melissa insists lifestyle is the key to keeping cancer away for those with the BRCA-1 mutation. "It’s the stress that will turn that gene on or not," she says.
