Brad Pitt to Portray Gen. Stanley McChrystal in Movie?

ABC/Rick Rowell(LOS ANGELES) -- Brad Pitt may play legendary former U.S. Army general Gen. Stanley McChrystal in a movie based on the late Michael Hastings book The Operators, according to Deadline.

McChrystal was once the commanding general of international and U.S. forces in Afghanistan, who was forced out after he was critical of members of the Obama administration's handling of the war there in a Rolling Stone article Hastings wrote. Incidentally, Hastings was killed when his Mercedes exploded in Los Angeles in June of 2013.

Many of his friends and associates are convinced -- as he was before his death -- that Hastings was being targeted for trying to expose CIA and National Security Agency spying on journalists and other Americans. Officially, his death was listed as an accident.
