  • Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio

Brokeback Mountain's first director Gus Van Sant is now making the rounds to promote his latest film, Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot. That wasn't working out", Van Sant told IndieWire, "I asked the usual suspects: Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Ryan Phillippe.

But at the outset of Brokeback Mountain, 'Nobody wanted to do it, ' according to filmmaker Gus Van Sant in a chat with IndieWire Wednesday.

"I think in that case in particular..."

Van Sant, the director of acclaimed movies such as My Own Private Idaho, Good Will Hunting and Milk, revealed that he was initially linked to the motion picture - director Ang Lee wound up winning the best director Oscar for his efforts - and in the early casting process, he sought big names to headline the film. I like the film.

Looking back, Van Sant said he should have cast "unknown" faces in the film. I don't think it would have panned out the way it did if I had directed it.

Brokeback Mountain, based on a short story by Annie Proulx, tells the story of cowboys Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal) and Ennis Del Mar (Heath Ledger) who conduct a strained, secret and long distance love affair over 20 years.

"What I could have done, and what I probably should have done, was cast more unknowns, not anxious about who were the lead actors", he said.

Van Sant's "Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot", which came out in April, stars Joaquin Phoenix as John Callahan, a cartoonist who became paraplegic and used a wheelchair. I'm not sure why. "I didn't really want to go and talk Larry and Diana out of what they had created, because it was great", he said.

Ossana added that several notable directors also turned down the film: "Nobody would commit. I guess they saw it as too hard", she told The Hollywood Reporter at the time.
