Read the article about Cruise vs Paramount not only for it's mention of Bejamin Button but also for the fragile situation in Hollywood land right now. Fascinating. Anyways here is the mention of our eagerly awaited film:
Indeed, as tempers flared last week, Paramount executives were at the bargaining table with CAA, hammering out a new movie deal. By the end of last week, the studio had greenlighted "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," which it is co-producing with Warner. The film depends on four of CAA's top clients.
The drama about a man who begins aging backward when he hits 50 stars Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, with a screenplay by Eric Roth. It will be directed by David Fincher.
Damn the movie was only greenlight last week? I would have thought this was done a while ago. Strange folks those Hollywood people.
