Brad Pitt and Natalie Portman go auctioneering

They’ll star in a new book adaptation...

Paramount has won the services of Brad Pitt and Natalie Portman to star in the adaptation of Leanne Shapton’s unusual book.

Written in the form of a Sotheby’s-alike estate catalogue, Important Artefacts And Personal Property From The Collection Of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion And Jewellery, follows the ups and downs of a four-year relationship between a 40-year old photographer and a 20-something food columnist.

Yes, they’re really aiming for blockbuster appeal this time. And we’re going to guess that title will shorten just a little.

Still, Paramount must consider this one important – the studio fought a bidding war for the book rights and plans to develop the tale as a romantic comedy.

Next week, expect Warners to announce competing project Eggs, Crisps, Wine and Cigs: The Shopping List Of A Man In Canterbury Who Prefers Sainsbury’s To Tesco’s.
