I turned down 12 Years...for my kids, says Brad Pitt

The 50-year-old, who has co-produced the movie, was worried about the shocking imagery and negative impact it might have on his six children.

‘I didn’t want my kids to see me in this role,’ Pitt said in a statement. The role of Edwin Epps was then given to actor Michael Fassbender.

Set in the 1900s 12 Years A Slave is the story of Solomon Northup, a free black man from upstate New York, who is abducted and sold into slavery. The movie will hit Indian theatres 31 January.
