As we previously reported, Glee creator Ryan Murphy is bringing the critically acclaimed The Normal Heart to the big screen!
The semi-autobiographical play revolving around friends and the spread and awareness of HIV/AIDS in the 80s has Mark Ruffalo attached to star.
Another big name aboard the film is Brad Pitt, but he won't be in front of the camera. His production company, Plan B, is producing the film.

If they can do this right, it could def be a worthwhile story for the world to know about.
Brad Pitt is seeking to secure the film rights to the story of the 33 Chilean miners who were trapped underground for over two months.

Do U think the Chilean miners' story should be adapted into a big screen epic?
