Brad Pitt to Produce Movie about Drug Busting Journalist

Brad Pitt is turning producer for a new movie he’s signed on to do.

His production company Plan B has bought the life rights to the story of Missouri journalist Linda Trest, who helped break open the cover of a drug-busting con man.

He’s currently developing the story with David Benioff, the writer of Troy, and screenwriters Anthony Walton and Andrew Dresher. the story hits close to home for Pitt, who also studied journalism at Missouri when he was younger. Sounds like a good flick!
