Brad Pitt Developing 'Dr Q' Movie About Successful Immigrant Doctor!

Brad Pitt‘s Plan B is partnering with Disney to develop movie Dr. Q, about the true-life story of Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa, an illegal immigrant who became the head of brain tumor surgery at John Hopkins Hospital.

Dr. Quinones-Hinojosa came to America when he was 19 and worked on farms before eventually working his way to college and med school. He is now a citizen, and a professor of neurosurgery and oncology at Johns Hopkins.

Matt Lopez is set to write the script, Variety reports. Brad will produce, along with Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner. The project has reportedly been in the works since 2007!

    I love this chart of Oscar rating (12 year of a slave rating is great), re: Leo couldn’t bring the big audiences for his biggest night, it is really low even though Leo has the most tweet/min I’m pretty sure all tweet were memes mocking him for he suppose overdue Oscar

    #Oscar  ratings: fewest viewers since ’08, smallest 18-49 year-old draw in at least 20 years adweek.it/1oK5jE6

    Just had a letter saying that my street in Hampstead is being dressed in 1940s style for a day to shoot the new Zemeckis film. Amazing.

  • Passing Through

    Kind of ironic isn’t it that the hightest rating was the year Titanic won Best Picture…and the lowest was the year Le1 won his “overdue” Best Actor award. Not that Le1 cares because he’s finally got his shiny gold bald guy…

    Perhaps it’s the looks. Nina Simone definitely had a unique look and shape. Maybe it’s the color of her skin? Really crazy – almost like there is a backlash of being too beautiful? Like Clint Eastwood said about Angie being too beautiful that people didn’t look to see what was under that beauty. Can’t have a beautiful, smart, talented woman.

    Let me know when they move to Dallas, Texas.

  • http://thecompletehistoryofbradandangelina.blogspot.com/ Lady Valeria

    People are mad because they made up Zoe in prosthetics to give her a flatter, wider nose, and used makeup to make her darker–instead of hiring an actress who had those features and skin color already.

    And then before that, Zoe was all “I’m not black, I’m *fill in the blank*”….so yea.

    This side by side cracks me up. lol Miranda who?

    http://cdn01.cdn.justjared.com/wp-content/uploads/headlines/2016/02/miranda-kerr-ashley-graham-vanity-fair-oscar-party-2016.jpg

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++

    I saw this yesterday and LMAO. Why is Miranda Kerr’s dress hanging off of her like that? She’s skinny, but she’s not that skinny. It’s just a bad fit. Ashley Graham does look good in that dress, but it’s a fug dress. Plus, she’s wearing Spanx and that helps considerably to smooth out the lumps. Good for her that her career is taking off though. The world needs to know that you can still eat real food and look great. You don’t have to look like those emaciated models whose ribs you can count…through their clothes…

  • toastie postie

    What a shame. Of course the documentary was pretty good, so why a movie?

    Ah! Thanks, Lady V.

    Bringing this over from previous thread. Its in response to a post by PT who was responding to this story from the HR about Plan B, posted by fyi:

    Once again Brad and Plan B show that they are way ahead of the rest.

    Consider: stories with diverse characters appeal on a global scale because while perhaps 80% or so of the US 300M population is white, the rest of the world’s SEVEN BILLION people are way more than 50% nonwhite. Thats more than FOUR BILLION PEOPLE.

    Dat’s a whole lot of dollahs!

    Because its now official: the BO for HW movies comes from……yes………. the rest of the globe!

    So………Plan B making movies with global appeal + BO numbers higher in the rest of the globe/not the US = Plan B-KACHING!

    LMAO.

    Not only does Brad know where da money is but he’s way ahead of the pack to go get dat money!

    Whoa…Squiggy has bankrupted Paramount. Viacom is looking of an equity partner for Paramount. Jeffrey Katzenberg who owns Dreamworks Animation said he’d like to BUYMERGE Paramount with Dreamworks Animation…which is ironic since when Paramount owned Dreamworks he and Spielberg – mainly Spielberg’s people – were total bitches to their bosses at Paramount and David Geffen had to step in and negotiate a deal to sever Dreamworks from Paramount…which is why Spielberg and Katzenberg are no long 50/50 partners in the same company.

    Anyhackwriter…ZG2 flopping has probably hastened the search for an equity partner. Africa and WWZ2 were already co-financed with Skydance, but I wonder if this possible money crunch is going to affect WWZ2′s budget?

    Why is it that every Plan B movie sounds so bloody interesting?! LOL! Not complaining…. I love it, I love how Plan B is doing such fine job after they kicked out the deadweight.

  • Passing Through

    The US white population is 64%. The way things are trending it’ll be down to 50% before the century ends. The world population is something like 7.5 billion with close to half of that being Asians (India is part of Asia).

    http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/

    So, common sense says – you can’t keep making movies and tv shows featuring nothing but white people. At the rate things are going, in order to keep movies and tv whiter than white, every white person on the planet will need to be an actor by the year 2050. LOL!

  • wika

    Well I hope that’s lesson learnt for Paramount…always, always look at people’s resume before financing then. And then they’ll realize never to work with the film bombers like the Theroux-Manistons LOL

  • ali7

    No they’re serious

    Let’s hope it was said firmly tongue in cheek – otherwise they look like total tools.

    How long is the deal between Paramount and Plan B ?

  • wika

    They even confidently quoted Angelina from People. I don’t recall that quote ever…..

  • Passing Through

    Plan B doesn’t have a deal with Paramount anymore. They’re first-look deal with New Regency now. However, Par has the right of first refusal on any project they bought for Plan B to develop…and there’s at least a dozen projects that Plan B still has in development that Par bought for them.

  • sandra

    thanks. I would like them to team with WB.

  • Passing Through

    They should have found someone to share the cost with them the same way they’re doing with movies over $100MIL. Instead – they’re looking at at $80-100MIL loss on ZG2…and searching for an equity partner for future dumb movie ideas.

  • bap

    White people are still in control economically, politically etc….

  • Passing Through

    Pffft. Please. Brad ain’t ever going back into business with WB full-time. Have you forgetten the way they fvcked him over on TAOJJ? Plan B does have 1 movie that they’re producing in conjunction with WB, but they won’t be working with WB full-time again. It took WB 9 years to get Brad to work with them again and I can’t see him wanting to be tied to them for every project. They don’t even produce everything with New Regency. If NR isn’t interested they go elsewhere.

    For the time being. If you look at the situation with the US and how much money we owe China (and other countries are in debt to China, too) you’ll realize that some day China is going to control the global economic markets – not the US.

  • AWHODAT

    Y’know, i was hedging when i said 80% cos i know i read somewhere sometime ago about it going down to 50% in less than 50 years. But i was very surprised that its currently 64% omg. LOL

    And unlike developing countries whose populations are more than 50% below age 35, in the US, the white population is aging fast.
