Pitt and Portman Sign Up for ‘Important Artifacts’

Brad Pitt is set to star in another tongue-twister of a movie after signing on for the adaptation of Leanne Shapton’s book Important Artifacts and Personal Property from the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion and Jewelry.

The actor seems to enjoy long titles after fronting The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which earned him an Oscar nomination.

For Important Artifacts, he’ll star alongside Natalie Portman.

Pitt and Portman will share producing duties on the project, according to Variety.

The actor will play fictitious photographer Hal Morris, and Portman will take on the role of Lenore Doolan, a New York Times food columnist, in the romantic comedy.
