    The ‘Fight Club’ actor Brad Pitt hadn’t been given the script just until two weeks before the shooting started. “There was no script. I knew the book, and in the book you have this guy asking, ‘Who am I?’ Which was probably applicable to me at that time. ‘Am I good? Am I of the angels?’”

    In the book, it is a guy going on this search of discovery. And in the meantime, he has this Lestat character that he’s entranced by and abhors. But then I got the script two weeks before we started shooting,” Pitt shared.
