Brad Pitt has set his sights on a new leading lady in the form of budding actress Cara Delevingne, and RadarOnline.com has learned the father of six is desperately courting her for a role in one of his 40 upcoming movie projects for his film company Plan B.
After having already accomplished so much at such a young age, 23-year-old Delevingne says she's not doing fashion work anymore and turning to acting instead.
"Brad thinks Cara's talents haven't been explored properly and he wants to take her under his wing," said an insider. "He's hoping she might sign an ongoing deal with his company."
In fact, Pitt, 52, has already offered Delevingne the lead in his World War Z sequel, but, noted the insider, the model-actress "can't do it because of schedule conflicts."
Still, "Brad won't give up" on scoring Delevingne as his "next big thing."
"He's opened his contacts book to her and given her numbers of the best acting teachers in Hollywood," the insider told Radar. "He really thinks she's got what it takes to win an Oscar one day."
