Pitt's Plan B, Searchlight Pictures collaborating on 'The World According to Fannie Davis' film

Los Angeles, Jun 27 (PTI) Brad Pitt's Plan B Entertainment has partnered with Searchlight Pictures for the upcoming feature adaptation of the book 'The World According to Fannie Davis: My Mother’s Life in the Detroit Numbers'.

The book, penned by author Bridgett M. Davis, tells the true story of Davis' mother, a woman who 'made a way of no way' her motto as she did whatever it took to offer her children a middle-class life in 1960s and 1970s Detroit.

'In this case, it meant that Davis' mother became part bookie and part banker to run a numbers racket out of her home, allowing her children to go to good schools and have nice clothes, all the while keeping the entire operation a secret,' the official plotline read.

Davis is writing the script, while Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage is consulting on the project.

Plan B, best known for Oscar-winning movies like ' Moonlight' and '12 Years a Slave', will produce. PTI RB SHD SHD
