Pic is based on the best-selling pair of memoirs from father and son David (Carell) and Nic Sheff (Chalamet), which chronicles the heartbreaking and inspiring experience of survival, relapse, and recovery in a family coping with meth addiction over many years. The film also stars Maura Tierney, Amy Ryan and Timothy Hutton.

Groeningen and Luke Davies (Lion) wrote the screenplay, and Plan B Entertainment’s Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner produce.

Beautiful Boy will receive a platform release. The pic sounds like another Amazon title destined for awards. Carell was nominated for a best actor Oscar for 2015’s Foxcatcher, while Chalamet received his first Oscar nom for best actor this season for Sony Pictures Classics’ Call Me by Your Name.

Timothee Chalamet is firming his first starring role since being Oscar nominated for his breakout turn in Call Me By Your Name. Chalamet will star as the title character in The King, a Plan B-produced drama helmed by David Michôd. Production will start in June. Joel Edgerton and Michôd wrote the script.

Chalamet will play the young Henry V. After his brother is killed in battle before his coronation, a young king is coronated in the late 1300s. The reluctant ruler wears the crown at a time when England was near a war with France, and the empire is teetering. He rises to the occasion, admirably. Plan B’s Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner will produce along with Edgerton and Michôd. Liz Watts, who produced the Michôd-directed Animal Kingdom and The Rover, are also producing.

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.

Too many people are famous nowadays (or claim to be), but only a few have been as well-known and well-loved for quite as long as Brad Pitt (let’s call it three decades). As such, Brad’s big “I’m the man of the moment” moment has happened more than once. And each of these tends to coincide with critically acclaimed movie roles, the beginning or end of a relationship, or an exceptionally good hair phase. Like right now.

Last night, the actor attended Netflix’s Okja premiere wearing a houndstooth suit, white dress shirt, and wine-colored dress shoes from Salvatore Ferragamo—and his hair is still in that exceptionally good messy fade cut. His tanned complexion made it look like he’d just returned from vacation, but who can say? (There’s always a chance it was just some Tom Ford bronzer.) In short, he looked like a man at the top of his game and, perhaps more importantly, ready to be the center of attention.
