ILLUMINAE movie rights sold to Warner Bros., Brad Pitt


illuminae amie kaufman jay kristoffMovie rights to Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff’s Illuminae sold to Warner Bros. and Plan B Entertainment.

Told through found documents, Illuminae follows exes Kady and Ezra, who find themselves working together when their planet gets invaded. They’re forced onto two separate spaceships, whose crews are hiding secrets from those on board – secrets they’re determined to uncover.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Brad Pitt will produce alongside Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner. Casting for Illuminae has the opportunity for a rather inclusive cast, as few characters are physically described in the found document style of the book. Casting for the voice of AIDAN, the artificial intelligence that controls the weapons system, is already being debated online, as AIDAN is not associated with a specific gender representation in the book.
