Brad Pitt to star in new drama

Brad Pitt is to star in a drama about a man who begins aging backwards after he hits 50.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is based in a story by F Scott Fitzgerald, reports Variety.

The movie will reunite the actor with Cate Blanchett, his Babel co-star, and his Fight Club director David Fincher.

Production is due to start this autumn after Pitt finishes work on Ocean's 13.

Variety says Pitt is also interested in a role in State of Play, an Americanised remake of the acclaimed British TV mini-series.
