"Variety reports that Natalie Portman and Brad Pitt will star in adaptation of Leanne Shapton's book, "Important Artifacts and Personal Property From the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion and Jewelry". It's a project that won't only merge their acting talents, but also their production houses -- both Handsomecharlie Films and Plan B will produce.
