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!
