Variety’s reporting Chris Pine (hot off his starring role as Captain Kirk in Star Trek) and director D.J. Caruso (Eagle Eye, Disturbia) are in negotiations to join The Art of Making Money. Pine, who’s been very picky about which projects he takes on since scoring success as the new Kirk, is currently filming Unstoppable, the action drama that hit a few speedbumps before heading into production. Caruso’s linked to a few projects (Y: The Last Man, The Defenders, Dead Space), none of which are real close to getting underway.

According to Variety, Paramount’s looking to get The Art of Making Money into production as soon as early next year.

Frank Baldwin’s screenplay is based on the book The Art of Making Money: The Story of a Master Counterfeiter by Jason Kersten. Kersten’s book tells the true story of Art Williams, a Chicago man with a troubled childhood who became one of the most successful counterfeiters in modern history. If the deal goes through, Pine will play Williams.


AN: Whether this is 100% true or not I’m not sure, though I’ll see what I can do to find out how legitimate it is. If it is than I think it already sounds interesting and I would really love to see Chris in a role such as the article described, what about you guys?
