Superbad Helmer Collects “Important Artifacts”

Greg Mottola (“Superbad,” “Adventureland”) will pen a feature adaptation of Leanne Shapton’s book “Important Artifacts” for Paramount Pictures, Plan B and Handsomecharlie Films says Risky Business.

The romantic comedy will be a narrative extrapolated from newspaper art director Shapton’s book which is a fictional auction catalogue made up of items and photos from a four-year romance between a male photographer and a younger food columnist.

Brad Pitt and Natalie Portman will produce and were attached to star early last year.
