Actor Brad Pitt is reportedly desperate to get supermodel and actor Cara Delevingne to star in one of his upcoming films. He is said to have already offered her the lead role in World War Z 2, a sequel to 2013’s zombie apocalypse hit World War Z, directed by Marc Forster.

Delevingne – who was named Model of the Year at the 2014 British Fashion Awards – made her Hollywood debut with Anna Karenina in 2012, after which she was seen in the 2015 comedy drama Paper Towns. According to sources, the supermodel has declined the World War Z sequel offer, owing to prior commitments and schedule conflicts. “Brad thinks Cara’s talents haven’t been explored properly and he wants to take her under his wing,” quoted a source. “He’s hoping she might sign an ongoing deal with his company.” The sequel is expected to release in the summer of 2017 but the Ocean’s Eleven actor does not plan on giving up and wishes to make Delevingne his “next big thing.”

Deepika Padukone to star opposite Brad Pitt?

“He’s opened his contacts book to her and given her numbers of the best acting teachers in Hollywood. He really thinks she’s got what it takes to win an Oscar one day,” the source added.

Pitt was last seen in The Big Short and is currently working on a war drama called War Machine, which will be released later this year.
