Here’s a first official look at Actor Brad Pitt as Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal in War Machine, the upcoming provocative satirical drama comedy movie written directed by Australian Filmmaker David Michod and produced by Netflix:
“The film concerns a four star, ‘rock star’ general (Brad Pitt) whose lethal reputation and impeccable track record vaults him to command the American war in Afghanistan. Determined to win the ‘impossible’ war once and for all with a radical new approach, the general and his motley staff of commanders and press advisers race across the globe navigating delicate international alliances and troop requests, the charged battlefield of Washington politics, the voracious appetite of the media, and the day-to-day management of the war itself – all the while struggling to stay connected to the lives of men and women out in the field.”
The film is based on American journalist Michael Hastings’ non-fiction book “The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan”. And besides Brad Pitt, the film is also starring Anthony Michael Hall, Will Poulter, Topher Grace, and Emory Cohen.

Well he does look indeed like a military-issued version of Barbie’s Ken!
