The actor has been out of the spotlight since his wife Angelina Jolie filed for divorce in September (16), but film sources claim he will return to the public eye to promote his new movie Allied, in which he stars with French actress Marion Cotillard.

Pitt was also spotted in New York on Monday night (07Nov16) attending a private screening of acclaimed independent film Moonlight, which he produced.

Reports suggest his date for the evening was pal Julia Roberts.

Allied opens in U.S. movie theatres on 23 November (16).

Meanwhile, Brad and Angelina have reportedly reached an agreement on custody of their six children, according to a statement issued by Jolie's representative.

"We can confirm that childcare professionals have encouraged a legal agreement accepted and signed by both sides over a week ago," it reads.

"In accordance with this agreement, the six children will stay in their mother's custody, and the children will continue therapeutic visits with their father. We are not in a position to discuss the details."
