Pitt takes on 'Schmidt' for Col project

16 February 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Brad Pitt is attached to star in Chad Schmidt, a new Steve Conrad script that has been sold to Columbia Pictures for more than $1 million. Schmidt centers on a talented young actor who moves to Los Angeles in the 1980s to pursue his dream of movie stardom. The twist is that he bears a peculiarly strong resemblance to another up-and-coming actor named Brad Pitt. As the real Pitt achieves a dazzling level of fame, the fictional Schmidt, for all of his talent, becomes a comic uncastable joke. Ultimately, Schmidt must struggle to overcome the blow of abandoning his dreams and must make peace with the hard realities of life. Escape Artists partners Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch are producing Schmidt. The executive producers are Escape Artists CEO David Alper and Conrad. Amy Baer will oversee for Columbia. Conrad's credits include Columbia's Pursuit of Happiness, Paramount's The Weather Man and Warner Bros. Pictures' Wrestling Ernest Hemingway. Conrad is repped by Endeavor. »
