Los Angeles: Trouble is reportedly brewing between Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt`s production company Plan B and Paramount studio over `12 Years a Slave`.

Paramount executives belief that people at Pitt`s company breached a deal with the studio by failing to offer them a chance to finance and distribute the award-contender, the Hollywood Reporter said quoting industry sources.

The actor and the studio have had a long relationship, collaborating most recently on zombie horror film `World War Z` but it seems that Pitt`s company and the studio are headed for a confrontation over Steve McQueen directed movie.

The film is co-financed by New Regency and distributed via Fox Searchlight, from a concept first discussed by Pitt with McQueen that he eventually co-wrote with writer John Ridley.

Under a position, Pitt`s company is under contract to give Paramount the chance to come in on projects developed by Plan B.

The studio is reportedly contemplating on what steps to take in light of the alleged breach, with its chairman Brad Grey being deliberately misled, not by Pitt himself, but by Plan B executives.

Both parties declined to comment on the reported feud.
