Cate Blanchett and Brad Pitt are in talks to star in 'Babel', the new film from '21 Grams' and 'Amores Perros' director Alejandro González Iñárritu.

The Hollywood Reporter says that the drama reunites Iñárritu with screenwriter Guillermo Arriaga, who worked with him on both '21 Grams' and 'Amores Perros'.

Pitt, currently on Irish cinema screens in 'Ocean's Twelve', will next be seen opposite Angelina Jolie in 'Mr and Mrs Smith'.

Blanchett can currently be seen on Irish cinema screens in her Oscar-winning performance in 'The Aviator'.
