Sometimes you just gotta make a headline big and bold, know what I’m saying? Brad Pitt and Natalie Portman are attached to star in a film for Paramount Pictures based on the newly published novel by Leanne Shapton.
I bet that changes for the cineplex audiences.
The book is a faux estate auction catalog whose memorabilia illuminates the lives of the fictional couple. This sounds like a really compelling book…movie? Not so much, but I’m open to being proven wrong.
Apparently Portman brought this to Pitt and the two production companies attached to the stars (seems everyone has a production company nowadays) are producing the film.
If it’s got Portman in it, though, I’m at least a little interested, and Pitt is a great actor when given good material. Maybe I’ll come around on this one.
