Confirming their commitment to their Miraval chateau in France, the former couple—who launched a signature estate wine line in 2013—will release their latest bottling this week.
The fifth-annual release of their award-winning pink rosé will appear without change to their familiar “bottled by Jolie-Pitt and Perrin” label. First shipments will arrive in the United States immediately.
Winemaker Marc Perrin, 47, who partnered with the now-separated couple when the venture began, tells PEOPLE exclusively that the release designated Miraval 2017 is “very certainly our best vintage since we began in 2012. With magnificent aromas of fragrant white blossom and fruit, the wine retains that touch of distinctive minerality drawn from the limestone soils, that is the hallmark of the greatest French terroirs.” “But what makes this 2017 vintage really stand out is its silky texture which adds a very special dimension to the wine,” the fifth-generation winemaker adds.
Amazon has bought the television rights for the first science fiction novel by Scottish author Iain Banks.
Consider Phlebas will be adapted for the small screen with the help of Brad Pitt’s Plan B production company.
The story, first published in 1987, is the first of Banks’ novels to feature the Culture, an interstellar utopian society.
The estate of Iain Banks, who died from cancer aged 59 in 2013, will be an executive producer for the series.
The story of Consider Phlebas centres on the character of Horza, who is tasked with recovering a missing Culture “Mind” – an artificial intelligence many thousands of times smarter than any human being.
Sharon Tal Yguado, head of scripted series at Amazon Studios said: “The story of the Culture is so rich and captivating that for years Hollywood has been trying to bring this utopian society to life on the screen.
“We are honoured that we have been chosen, along with Dennis Kelly and Plan B Entertainment, to make Consider Phlebas into a television series we think will be loved by fans for years to come.”

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.
A 2009 Triumph Bonneville motorcycle previously owned by Hollywood star Brad Pitt is up for grabs this weekend in England.
The Bud Ekins Desert Scrambler Special will be auctioned on Saturday by Coys at the London Motorcyle Show at the city’s Excel exhibition space.
One of just three special edition bikes created to celebrate the life of Steve McQueen’s stunt double Bud Ekins, it was built by Brad Holstein on behalf of Triumph. It’s said to have been given to Brad Pitt as a gift from the Ocean’s Eleven producer Jerry Weintraub, with a special birthday message engraved on the petrol cap.
The sellers describe the motorbike as being in good all-round condition, complete with its original license plates. It’s estimated to make between £20,000 and £30,000 ($28,000 – $42,000).
“We are excited to be back at the London Motorcycle Show for our third bike auction in the capital,” said Coys CEO, Chris Routledge. “We have a stunning selection of motorcycles on offer, including this special Triumph evocating the sled racers that Steve McQueen and Bud Ekins used to race in the 1960s.”
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.
