According to Variety, Paramount Pictures has stepped in and joined up with Brad Pitt's Plan B in order to adapt the novel The Every Boy. Plan B initially had a deal with Warner Bros but quickly exited to join Paramount.

Paramount has hired documaker Dana Adam Shapiro to adapt and direct The Every Boy, with Plan B still set to produce.

The Every Boy-- written by Shapiro and published in July of 2005 --tells the story of the dead Henry Every, an eccentric teenager who leaves behind thousands of pages of diary entries that detail his unusual mindset and life experiences.

The film marks Shapiro's first feature directing deal.

Shapiro, a former contributing editor at music magazine Spin, co-directed Murderball with Henry Alex Rubin. The documentary, about a group of quadriplegics who play wheelchair rugby later earned Shapiro an Oscar nod.

Stay tuned for updates.
