This seems to be one of those on again/off again projects that simply refuses to die, but now comes some good news! Superstar Brad Pitt will reunite with his "Seven" and "Fight Club" buddy David Fincher to adapt F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" for the big screen. And Cate Blanchett is on board too!
From Variety: ""Button," which has been on Pitt’s radar for at least a year, re-teams the thesp with his "Fight Club" director David Fincher and Cate Blanchett, his "Babel" co-star. The project has been developed for more than a decade in several different incarnations.
Scripted by Eric Roth from a story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, drama casts Pitt as a man who hits age 50 and begins aging backward. Complications ensue when he falls in love with a woman of 30. "Button," which is produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall, is likely to start production in late fall."
