You read that right. Brad Pitt is shopping around the film adaptation of the 2001 Novel “IBM and The Holocaust”. One of history’s greatest “SORRY EVERYONE! MY BAD” moments, IBM had made a deal with 1933 Nazi Germany helping them sort and analyze their census data. Which ultimately led them to know who and where the Jews were.
Sources over at Vulture say that the film has been in the works since last January and was originally going to be released on HBO. It has recently just left HBO and Brad Pitts Plan B Productions have been shopping it around with various TV networks but a feature film is most likely the final destination of this project. During the new shopping it has been reported that Pitt has recently put himself on as the star.
The first script written was by Marcus Hinchey who wrote and co produced All Good Things.
No other info has been released yet, but it will be very interesting to see where this project ends up.
