Pitt Produces New Film For Roberts

Subscribe to Brad Pitt alerts

Brad Pitt will produce the film EAT, PRAY, LOVE for his former co-star Julia Roberts. Pitt snapped up the rights to ELIZABETH GILBERT's memoir for Roberts, who was his co-star in The Mexican, as well OCEAN'S ELEVEN. NIP/TUCK creator RYAN MURPHY will adapt and direct the project with Pitt's Plan B production company. Roberts will play Gilbert who had a husband, big apartment and a weekend home and was trying to get pregnant, when she realised that wasn't the life she wanted. After a painful divorce, she set off on a journey of self-discovery around the world. The film will be a large-scale epic that covers four countries. The author has rebuffed numerous overtures from actresses eager to play the lead role and selected Roberts to portray her on the big screen. Pitt and Murphy are developing a series of projects together including the feature film RUNNING WITH SCISSORS and a TV series titled 4 OZ.
