I don't entirely have faith that this'll happen soon, knowing David Fincher's track record, but just the possibility of a project lined up is something to celebrate. From DH:
"Brad Pitt has committed to star in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," a Paramount/Warner Bros. co-production, which he'll make after he reprises his role this summer in the Steven Soderbergh-directed "Ocean's Thirteen" reports Variety… "Button" re-teams Pitt with his "Fight Club" director David Fincher and Cate Blanchett, his "Babel" co-star. The project has been developed for more than a decade in several different incarnations. Scripted by Eric Roth from a story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, drama casts Pitt as a man who hits age 50 and begins aging backward. Complications ensue when he falls in love with a woman of 30. "Button" is likely to start production in the late fall."
