Duvall: I'll do McCoys if Brad does

Robert Duvall has revealed he will only appear in a film about two famous feuding American families if Brad Pitt does.
The 79-year-old star of Get Low has revealed Eric Roth has written an excellent script about the Hatfield/McCoy feud and Crazy Heart director Scott Cooper has met with Brad about making the film for Warner Bros.
Robert said he will be on board the project "if Brad Pitt will say yes".
The dedicated acting veteran revealed: "I don't work as much as I want. My career is still going great, maybe as good as ever."
But Brad has recently shaved off his Hatfield and McCoy style beard, which he claimed he had grown out of boredom, to begin filming new baseball move Moneyball.
Robert is executive producer and star of new indie comedy Get Low, about Felix Bush, a bearded backwoods hermit in Depression-era Tennessee who convinces the town undertaker (Bill Murray) to throw him a funeral before he dies.
He is next lined up to play Don Quixote in Terry Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.
