According to, producers of new thriller mystery Riptide have offers out to Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf to play the leads.

The whodunit has had a polish from the brilliant Peter Morgan, who has penned the likes of The Last King of Scotland, The Queen and Frost/Nixon. The original script comes from Richard McBrian (Spooks).

While there's no confirmation of who'll play whom, Pajiba speculates that Pitt is being chased for the role of an investigator called to a ship called the Nautica when a body is found floating in the sea. LaBeouf, they say, is wanted for the role of a young stockbroker (again, really?) who has taken the boat out with his girlfriend. A fourth character, a handyman, sounds like he could be the victim.
