Pitt and Portman starring in "Artifacts"
Brad Pitt and Natalie Portman are to star together in a film adaptation of the book, Important Artifacts and Personal Property from the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion, and Jewelry.
Snappy title. But it does sound like an interesting book, if maybe a less interesting film.
Important Artifacts and Personal Property from the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion, and Jewelry sounds like a book with a difference. It tells the story of the relationship between a 40 something photographer and a 20 something food columnist. However it does it through photographs of items belonging to the imagnery pair. With the book coming across as an auction style catalogue.
The book has only just been released, and the rights have already been bought by Paramount. Now Brad Pitt and Natalie Portman have been signed to star, as well as produce through their respective production companies.
Variety say the book will be developed as a romantic comedy, with Pitt playing the photographer and Portman playing the food columnist. I do wonder how they will take what makes the book sound unique, and use it in the film version. Can they stop it from becoming just another romantic comedy? I see a lot of flashbacks in our future, while they pick certain objects and explain their importance.
Any of this appealing to you?
