Brad's Heel, Il Cinematografo (Italy), December, 2002
translated by Helen

Pitt becomes Achille in “Troy”, Wolfgang Petersen movie about the war between Greece and Troy.

From movie star to heroes of ancient mythology, this change is easy for Brad Pitt, Eric Bana and Orlando Bloom. This opportunity was given to them by Wolfgang Petersen's new movie, inspired by the mythical war between Greece and Troy, as the “Iliad” narrates.  The Big-budget movie (over 100 million dollars) is due to begin shooting in the spring in the UK, Malta and Morocco and is likely to have a 2004 release date in the USA. Orlando Bloom will star as Paris, the prince of Troy, who steals the beautiful Helen away from her husband Menelaus, the king of Sparta, and prompts the war. Eric Bana will play Hector, Paris’ brother, the bravest Trojan warrior. While Brad Pitt will be Achilles, the almost invulnerable hero, who kills Hector and puts Greece's army in a condition to win.  Claire Forlani is in negotiations to appear as Helen, Ciaran Hindis as Agamemnon and Clarke Duncan as Ajax.
