Pitt's Paltrow reunion
13:30 19 October 2006
Brad Pitt is to be reunited with former lover Gwyneth Paltrow.
The couple - who were once engaged to be married - are to star opposite each other in 'Dirty Tricks'.
The film about the life of American president Richard Nixon - who resigned from office before he was impeached - will cover the time of the Watergate scandal which lead to his downfall.
The film also stars Sharon Stone, Meryl Streep, Jim Broadbent, Annette Bening, and Jill Clayburgh.
Streep will play Martha Mitchell who blew the whistle on her husband - Nixon chief of staff John Mitchell - for his involvement in the scandal.
Gwyneth will play Maureen Dean, the wife of John Dean who, unlike Mitchell, stood by her man as the Nixon coterie collapsed.
It is not yet known what Brad's part will be.
Brad and Gwyneth were last seen onscreen together in homicide thriller 'Se7en' in which they played husband and wife.
Gwyneth is now married to Coldplay singer Chris Martin with whom she has two children, Apple and Moses.
Brad is in a relationship with Angelina Jolie and is joint legal guardian of her two adopted children, Maddox and Zahara, and father to her daughter Shiloh Nouvel.
Brad and Gwyneth split in 1997 but she later confessed she regretted breaking up with him.
