Greg Mottola attends IFP's 19th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York, on November 30, 2009
"Greg Mottola is writing an adaptation of “Important Artifacts” for Paramount Pictures to star Brad Pitt and Natalie Portman.
Natalie Portman as Grace Cahill in "Brothers" (2009).
The novel, actually titled “Important Artifacts and Personal Property From the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion and Jewelry” is a fake auction catalog that chronicles the rise and fall of a four-year relationship. It’s essentially 325 pages of email, notes, pictures, and heirlooms that Mottola will weave into the script, according to THR’s Risky Business blog.
Brad Pitt as Lt. Aldo Raine in "Inglorious Basterds" (2009).
Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Pitt were a couple in real-life.
Portman and Pitt, rumored to be attached to this since March 2009, will obviously play the couple.
Jesse Eisenberg and Margarita Levieva in "Adventureland" (2009) directed by Greg Mottola.
Hopefully they hire Mottola to direct immediately after he submits the script to Paramount. This is perfect material to take him to the next (and deserved) level. Executives, if you’re reading this, we need more Mottola.Mottola’s next feature is Paul, written by and starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz)". Source: www.newsinfilm.com
