Brad Pitt will team up with Angelina Jolie's ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton when work begins on new movie PEACE LIKE A RIVER later this year (05).

The Mr And Mrs Smith co-stars have been dogged with media reports of romance since before Pitt's split from Jennifer Aniston earlier this year - and Thornton was married to the Tomb Raider beauty for three years until their divorce in 2003.

Pitt will produce the film based on LEIF ENGER's story tale of an American family who get involved in a feud with a neighbourhood gang, and Thornton will star in the lead role.
