DJ Caruso knows The Art Of Making Money

Chris Pine may star in the factual counterfeiting drama

Paramount is trying to lock in a deal for Eagle Eye director DJ Caruso to helm The Art Of Making Money next.

The based-on-fact drama boasts a script by Frank Baldwin that takes as its source Jason Kersten's 2005 Rolling Stone article and his book of the same title about a man named Art Williams.

Using that (fake) name, the bloke rose from the Chicago streets, trading petty theft for a career as a master counterfeiter.

Star Trek's Chris Pine is negotiating to star and if the studio gets them both, it plans to start shooting early next year.
