Inferno Entertainment has come aboard as international sales agent on James Gray’s red-hot adventure project The Lost City Of Z to star Brad Pitt.

Buyers have been flocking to the project, which is being styled in the vein of Lawrence Of Arabia and is based on Gray’s adapted screenplay of David Grann’s recent bestseller.

The true story takes place in the early twentieth century and charts 30 years in the life of Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett, a former decorated British soldier turned explorer.

Fawcett developed an obsession for the Amazon and became convinced that an advanced civilisation lived within the interior after several adrenaline-fuelled expeditions where he narrowly escaped death from tribal encounters, deadly animals and devastating diseases.

He eventually lost backing for the trips and self-funded a final trek into the Amazon with his son from which neither returned.

It is understood Pitt’s Plan B will produce. Inferno’s Bill Johnson and Jim Siebel declined to comment, however they would most likely come aboard as executive producers.

In case you’re searching for the Father’s Day gift to end all Father’s Day gifts: Renaissance power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have unveiled their first men’s design for venerable British jewelry house Asprey. As part of jeweler’s limited-edition Protector collection, Angelina and Brad have designed a pair of diamond cufflinks, available at Asprey stores now. Sharing the same serpent-inspired motif as the rest of the collection (snakes were a symbolic guardian talisman during the actress’s first pregnancy), the 18k white gold cufflinks are encrusted with elegant black diamonds and punctuated with emerald snake eyes. As much a philanthropic gift as a fashion statement, the cufflinks retail for a cool $10,000, with 100% of net proceeds going to the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict (EPCC), a charitable organization co-founded by Jolie.

The second project is a rewrite of the Paramount film “Battling Boy,” which is part of Brad Pitt’s Plan B production company. The film is based on the graphic novel of the same name, which is about “the son of a god who is sent down by his father from the top of a mountain to rid the giant city of Monstropolis of a plague of beasts.” Aren’t beasts supposed to be in a place called Monstropolis? This also is unrelated to Tim Burton’s proposed “Monsterpocalypse,” and thank god, the more monsters (or killing of monsters) the better. Hopefully Green and Parkinson can make something fun out of this, but honestly it kind of sounds like a paycheck development gig. The screenplay was originally written by “Watchmen” script writer Alex Tse.

Philip Seymour Hoffman and Robin Wright are in early talks to join Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill in Columbia Pictures’ “Moneyball.” If Hoffman’s deal comes together, project would reteam the thesp with helmer Bennett Miller, who directed Hoffman to a best actor Oscar in “Capote.”

After pulling the plug on the baseball-themed pic once before, the studio is readying “Moneyball” for a July start date in Los Angeles.

Based on Michael Lewis’ nonfiction book, story centers on the 2002 Oakland Athletics, who were led by general manager Billy Beane (Pitt) to an excellent season despite having the lowest payroll in the Major Leagues. Hoffman would play team manager Art Howe, who frequently clashed with Beane over strategic decisions.
