Brad Pitt’s Plan B production company has been quite busy in the past few days, yesterday announcing it picked up the rights for John Le Carre’s The Night Manager and today picking up the rights to Important Artifacts and Personal Property from the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion, and Jewelry, the recently published book by Leanne Shapton.
