Plan B acquires screen rights for ``The Imperfectionists``

News posted by

Mumbai, Jun 17 (PTI) Hollywood star Brad Pitt''s production company Plan B Entertainment, under its creative partnership with Reliance BIG Entertainment, has acquired the screen rights of Tom Rachman''s novel, ''The Imperfectionists''. ''The Imperfectionists'' centers on people who write and read an international newspaper based in Rome - from the obituary reporter who will do anything to avoid work, to the young freelancer who is manipulated by an egocentric war correspondent, to the dog-obsessed publisher who seems less interested in his struggling newspaper than in his magnificent basset hound. Rachman drew from his experience as a former wire service reporter at the Associated Press office in Rome to set the stage for ''The Imperfectionists. On the acquisition, Reliance BIG Entertainment''s Chairman Amit Khanna said in a statement, "The Imperfectionists will make a commercial and extremely relevant film which will play well to an international audience." This is one of several projects acquired by Plan B under their creative partnership with Reliance. Last year the company announced ''Dark Void'', based on Capcom''s acclaimed video game and being developed as a sci-fi action franchise and potential starring vehicle for Pitt, he said.
