Charles Leavitt Making "Confessions"



"Blood Diamond" scribe Charles Leavitt has been appointed by Warner Bros. Pictures to adapt Doug Stumpf's book "Confessions of a Wall Street Shoeshine Boy."

Fresh from penning "Blood Diamond" script for Warner Bros. Pictures, Charles Leavitt is now taking a new job from the same studio. The Pittsburgh-born screenwriter is on duty to write the screenplay of "Confessions of a Wall Street Shoeshine Boy", Variety has reported.

Based on Vanity Fair editor Doug Stumpf's unpublished book of the same title, the project focuses on a Brazilian shoeshine guy working at a preeminent New York financial institution and a reporter who exploits his relationship with an immigrant with an aim to uncover corporate crimes taking place at the Wall Street firm.

While there are no details yet on cast and director, it is confirmed that Donald De Line Pictures and Paula Weinstein of Spring Creek Pictures will both serve as producers.
