According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brad Pitt is attached to star in Chad Schmidt, a new Steve Conrad script that has been sold to Columbia Pictures for more than $1 million.

Schmidt centers on a talented young actor who moves to Los Angeles in the 1980s to pursue his dream of movie stardom. The twist is that he bears a peculiarly strong resemblance to another up-and-coming actor named Brad Pitt. As the real Pitt achieves a dazzling level of fame, the fictional Schmidt, for all of his talent, becomes a comic uncastable joke. Ultimately, Schmidt must struggle to overcome the blow of abandoning his dreams and must make peace with the hard realities of life.
