Ben Stiller is in talks to star in Mike White’s “Brad’s Status” for Sidney Kimmel Entertainment, which will finance and produce with Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment.
The story centers around a middle-aged man named Brad who, despite a good career and a very happy family, is obsessed with the better fortunes of his old friends from school.
While escorting his son on an East Coast tour of colleges, Brad is forced to confront his friends and his feelings of failure.
White will direct from his own script and produce alongside David Bernad. Shooting is slated to begin in September.
