Washington, Nov 22 : Brad Pitt has found the perfect inspiration for his character in the new film where he is playing a Missouri journalist-himself.
The 'Troy' star was studied journalism at the University of Missouri as a young man, reports Contactmusic.
Pitt's production company, Plan B, has bought the rights to the story of Missouri journalist Linda Trest, who helped break the cover of a drug-busting conman.
And with his background in journalism at Missouri, the good-looking actor will certainly be able to relate to Trest's character.
According to Hollywood Reporter, Pitt will develop the project with writers David Benioff, Anthony Walton and Andrew Dresher.
