'The Imperfectionists' film rights to Brad Pitt's production company
Brad Pitt's production team Plan B has acquired the movie right for Tom Rachman's new novel
The Imperfectionists, reported
Deadline on June 1. The best-selling novel tells the story of an English-language newspaper in Rome and the lives if its staff members.
First released in March in the UK, The Imperfectionists is the debut published novel for Rachman, a Canadian journalist-turned-author who bases his book on his own experiences as an expat reporter. Hype for the book began in 2008, when it was named one of the hottest titles at the Frankfurt Book Fair. Since its April release in the US, the book has been on the Amazon, New York Times, and Los Angeles Times bestseller lists.
The Imperfectionists focuses on eleven characters, their interwoven lives, and their ties to the 50-year-old newspaper, as well as the bleak future of the newspaper itself in the face of a new technological landscape.
No production schedule for the film adaptation has been released.
