The yet untitled film will be an adaptation of journalist Michael Finkel's memoir True Story, a tale about a New York Times reporter fired for supposedly falsifying information, who then earns a chance to redeem himself when he's granted an exclusive interview with a fugitive wanted by the FBI. Hill is set to play the protagonist, and Franco will assume the role of the fugitive.

Deadline reports Pitt and his production company Plan B were handed the reigns by Paramount after they had already set into motion the adaptation of the script.

Pitches have been made to financiers, and the production company hopes to put a deal in place within the week.
