Brad Pitt is stepping behind the camera to take a new superhero to the big screen - BATTLING BOY.
The actor's production company Plan B has bought the movie rights for the forthcoming comic book, about the son of a god who travels down from his mountain home to battle monsters.
The novel is due for release in 2010, and a movie version is expected to follow suit - once Pitt has hired a writer to adapt the story for the big screen.
