February 04 Plan B Joins David Oyelowo Pic ‘Nightingale’

Plan B’s Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner will reunite with Selma’s David Oyelowo. Company is coming involved in Nightingale in an unspecified capacity, joining with BN Films and producers Josh Weinstock, Katrina Wolfe (of BN Films) and director Elliott Lester. Details of the deal are still being worked out, but the filmmakers have confirmed that Plan B will will be active partners in the distribution and promotion of the picture. Nightingale is a provocative drama that probes the darkest corners of a disturbed mind. Oyelowo plays Peter Snowden, a man obsessively in love with an old army friend. As he prepares to reunite with the object of his affection, Peter begins to spiral downwards — with fatal results. Oyelowo revealed this at the Santa Barbara Film Festival. The pic needs a domestic distributor and Plan B, which produced 12 Years A Slave and Selma, can certainly be helpful in that regard.

January 29 World War Z 2 to start with a clean slate, shoot in October

Will WORLD WAR Z 2 be a completely different monster from the first movie? That could be the takeaway based on this interesting statement from the sequel’s screenwriter Steven Knight.

In an interview with Thompson on Hollywood, the Oscar-nominated scribe explains why he took the gig and how it differs from Marc Forster’s original:

“I thought, ‘why not? What fun.’ It’s not quite like the other, we’re starting with clean slate. When they’ve signed off we’re on.”
To me, “clean slate” indicates we won’t be picking up with Brad Pitt’s character, who at the end of the first film was happily reunited with his family after his long, arduous search for a zombie cure. But does it really make sense to make another WORLD WAR Z without Pitt front and center? (His production company, Plan B, will still produce.)

The article also notes that the film is “set to shoot in October for 2016 release.” J.A. Bayona is directing.

January 14 Brad Pitt, Christian Bale and Ryan Gosling to Star in ‘The Big Short’

Following the success of “Moneyball,” Brad Pitt and his Plan B shingle have assembled an all-star cast for the next adaptation of a Michael Lewis bestseller.

Sources tell Variety that Pitt, Christian Bale and Ryan Gosling have come on board to star in “The Big Short,” Paramount and Plan B’s adaptation “The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine,” which Adam McKay is writing and directing.

Lewis’ nonfiction tome tells the story of the build-up of the housing and credit bubble during the 2000s that led to the financial crisis of 2007-2010. Paramount had no comment.

Pitt will produce with DeDe Gardner through their Plan B banner. Production start date is unknown.

The book follows several key people who played a role in creating the disastrous credit bubble. The feature adaptation will likely feature several A-list actors who have similiar-sized roles, similar to the cast of “Traffic” or “The Counselor.”

As with “Moneyball,” Pitt has been very passionate about getting this adaptation onto the bigscreen.

January 07 Americanah

When we ran into David Oyelowo at last night’s Palm Springs International Film Festival Gala, we wanted to know — what’s next after Selma? You’re not going to believe how good the answer was.

The actor is re-teaming with Brad Pitt’s production company Plan B on a film version of Americanah, the best-selling 2013 novel by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

“I’m about to do Americanah with (Pitt, now quite the BFF) as well with Lupita Nyong’o,” said Oyelowo, who brought his wife Jessica and two of their four children to the event (including his son Caleb, who got a big happy birthday shout-out from dad on stage). “We have to find a director and a writer and all that good stuff. We’ll be playing a couple in that. It’s an epic story that follows these two Nigerians who fall in love in high school, and she goes off to America and he goes off to the U.K. They basically are suddenly immigrants in these countries. He goes back and becomes affluent again in Nigeria and it’s their journey back to each other.”
