The premium cable network is developing Stephanie Danler’s best-selling book with Plan B.
Sweetbitter, the best-selling novel by Stephanie Danler, is headed to the small screen.
Following a multiple-network bidding war, Starz is developing the project as a potential half-hour drama series with Brad Pitt’s Plan B attached to produce.

Sweetbitter follows 22-year-old Tess who, shortly after arriving in New York, lands a job at a celebrated downtown restaurant. Swiftly introduced to the world of drugs, alcohol, love, lust, dive bars and fine dining, she learns to navigate the chaotically alluring, yet punishing life she has stumbled upon.

The book was featured in The Hollywood Reporter’s “Rights Available” in May and is described as Kitchen Confidential meets Bridget Jones. It earned rave reviews and adoring profiles for waiter-turned-author Danler. The book is inspired by her life and tells the story of a young woman’s coming-of-age. It’s set against the rich and grimy backdrop of exclusive restaurants, conjuring a nonstop and high-adrenaline world evoking the possibility, beauty and fragility of being young and adrift.

Weatherman Brad Pitt made another appearance on The Jim Jefferies Show. Weather Brad is known for his grim reports on global warming, and this time he did his apocalyptic weather report in the field.

I’m on a boat!

On a boat in a canal in Venice, Italy, he said to Jefferies, “Yes, it’s a state of emergency here. It’s complete and utter chaos. The roads are gone. I repeat, the roads are gone. The rising water levels have consumed the streets. Behind me you’ll see terrified tourists evacuating the city to what I can only assume is a large ark of some kind.”

So, you’re doing the weather?

If you think it’s odd that A-List celebrity Brad Pitt is doing the weather on Comedy Central you’re not alone. Jim Jefferies explained on Conan that Pitt is a fan of Jim Jefferies‘s standup and actually asked him if he could be on the show. Jefferies said, “So we gave him this brown suit and he said, ‘Hey can I take that with me?’ And I said yeah, and now he carries the suit around with him in case he wants to do some field work weather reporting.”

PS. I just happened to be in Venice when this news came out. Unfortunately, I didn’t spot Brad. That would’ve been a slight miracle obviously, considering the huge amount of tourists.

Earlier this year, Brad Pitt spoke to to GQ in an extensive interview about his personal and professional life. In the interview, he talked about how Frank Ocean‘s music in particular was helping him through his divorce with Angelina Jolie. On Saturday night (July 22), Brad made a surprise appearance onstage with Frank as he performed a Stevie Wonder rendition of The Carpenters’ “Close to You” at FYF Fest in L.A.
Pitt’s gone through a highly publicized divorce with Angelina Jolie, and in the GQ interview he described the importance of Frank’s music at the time. “I find this young man so special. Talk about getting to the raw truth,” he said. “He’s painfully honest. He’s very, very special. I can’t find a bad one. And of great irony to me: Marvin Gaye’s Here, My Dear [Gaye’s touchstone album about divorce]. And that kind of sent me down a road.”

Quentin Tarantino is quietly starting to put together his latest project, and is talking to A-list actors for what is promising to be a unique take on the Manson Family murders.

The project, whose title is unknown, was written by Tarantino, who would also direct. Harvey and Bob Weinstein, who have produced and executive produced Tarantino’s previous films, are involved, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

WME is said to be in the early stages of shopping the project to studios to co-finance and co-distribute the venture, similar to the way Tarantino and the Weinsteins made the filmmaker’s 2009 movie Inglourious Basterds, which had Universal Studios as a financial and distributing partner.

Sources say that Tarantino is putting the finishing touches on the script and that Brad Pitt, who worked with the filmmaker on Basterds, and Jennifer Lawrence have been approached. Studios could receive the package after Labor Day, according to one source. The plan is to shoot in 2018, possibly in the summer.

Script details are scant but one of the stories centers on Sharon Tate, the actress and wife of director Roman Polanski who was murdered by Manson and his followers in 1969.

Hello my fellow Brad fans,

A quick note from your webmiss. I apologise for the recent lack of (content) updates! From now on it will be better again. The main reason for this was, because I recently moved to a different house with my fiancée, I started a higher level education, I still work fulltime – I am a registered nurse – and I tried to spend some valuable time with my dear friends and mother.

Surely this all doesn’t interest you and you just want to see and read about Brad Pitt, but I figured it is good to let you know there is a real person behind this website and things don’t just update themselves (oh, how I wish sometimes) :) With that being said, I wish you lots of fun visiting my beloved SB.com.

Thank you so much for your support in every way.

Love,
Josan
