A co-production between Cross Creek Pictures and Brad Pitt’s Plan B, the motion picture may cast Pitt as Texas native and Harvard-educated Dr. Perry Baird.
The film, according to the industry website, spotlights the doctor, "who rose in the field of medicine in the 1920s. He focused on the biochemical root of manic depression at a time when there wasn’t much research on the condition. Unfortunately, he would fall victim to the condition that so fascinated him and by the time the results of his groundbreaking research were published, he had been institutionalized."
The film is told from daughter Mimi's point of view, "observing her father as he was in and out of institutions, lost his medical license, and ultimately was given a lobotomy that killed him."
A timetable for the film has not been announced.
