Giamatti’s A Pretty Bird Then

Paul Giamatti and Emily Mortimer have signed on to star in the indie comedy “Pretty Bird” for writer/director Paul Schneider reports JoBlo.

Giamatti plays Curt, a lovable loser who believes he can invent a rocket belt that will bring him fame and fortune.

He enlists the help of friends and trouble arises when they actually succeed and they begin turning against each other.

Mortimer will play Mandy, the “Director of Marketing” for their operation. Giamatti will also produce the film.

Shooting begins this August in New Jersey.
