Two Hear the "Pretty Bird" Chirp


Paul Giamatti


Paul Giamatti and Emily Mortimer are reported by JoBlo to have agreed to star together in indie comedy "Pretty Bird."

Both going for a smaller scale in their next move, Paul Giamatti and Emily Mortimer are poised to topline an indie comedy entitled "Pretty Bird" which actor Paul Schneider is set to direct, JoBlo has reported.

In the project, Giamatti is said to play a lovable loser who intends to invent a rocket belt in hopes that it will make him famous. Keen to reach his goal, he then enlists help from some of his friends -- only they succeed, and subsequently begin to turn on one another. Meanwhile, Mortimer will be billed to portray a young woman named Mandy who serves as the Director of Marketing for their rocket belt operation.

Filming on the flick is scheduled to start this August in New Jersey with Giamatti producing alongside his wife Elizabeth Cohen. This is not the first time the Oscar-nominated actor taking the producer's seat for he has already got onboard for the position in "The Owl in Daylight", a biopic about the life of renowned sci-fi author Philip K. Dick which he is also about to star in.
