David Fincher has been working to bring F. Scott Fitzgerald's short story to the big screen for years. This December 19th, his vision will finally be realized in a movie that will surely be one of 2008's Oscar contenders. A foreign trailer has been leaking around the net (you might just find it if you look hard enough) and it looks quite good. Posted 06.11.08 by reelz
Brad Pitt stars as Button, a man who was born old and ages in reverse. At 50, he meets and falls in love with a 30-year old woman named Daisy (Cate Blanchett) and as their relationship blooms, the two are aging in opposite directions. While on the course of his most unusual life, Button experiences life in reverse, from a withered old man to a war vet to a soldier to college, prep school and, ultimately, a newborn baby.
This most unusual story is adapted for the screen by Eric Roth, whose acclaimed list of credits includes Forrest Gump, The Horse Whisperer and Munich.
We'll bring you more on this highly original project as we hear it!
