Hollywood hunk Brad Pitt is set to wear a tailcoat and breeches in a big screen adaptation of Pride And Prejudice.

Pitt is producers first choice to play aloof hero MR DARCY in the latest re-working of the JANE AUSTEN classic.

Rising teen star Keira Knightley has already been cast as the heroine ELIZABETH BENNET.

The 1995 BBC television adaptation was a huge success worldwide and launched LOVE ACTUALLY star Colin Firth to fame after he won over an army of female fans with his onscreen plunge into a lake.
