Finally a production update!

Producer Frank Marshall talks to the always reliable Empire Online:
Isn’t Benjamin Button coming up as well?
Yeah, my next film as a producer will be the third in the Jason Bourne series, The Bourne Ultimatum, which will be shot here in London and all over in Europe, but it’ll be based here in London with Paul Greengrass again. And then Benjamin Button starts in October, with David Fincher directing Brad Pitt, so that will be very cool. I can’t wait for that. That’s an amazing story. It’s an old F Scott Fitzgerald short story about a man who is born and ages backwards. It’s really a love story. He meets this woman who’s five, this kid who’s five, and he’s really five but he looks seventy and lives at this old people’s home and they play together and people can’t understand why they get along so well.

And Cate Blanchett’s in it as well, isn’t she?
Yeah, she plays the woman, and she grows up, so when they get to be in their thirties, they’re the same age, and they fall in love and then there’s this agonising separation as she gets older and he gets younger, then when he’s twenty he doesn’t want anything to do with her.
