Tilda Swinton considers Benjamin Button

With Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett already in place, it looks like David Fincher is sorting out his supporting cast for The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button.

Narnia’s Ice Queen Tilda Swinton is negotiating to jump on board the film, with Jason Flemyng and Hustle & Flow’s Taraji P Henson also considering parts.

Eric Roth’s adaptation of an F Scott Fitzgerald story of a man of 50 (Pitt) who falls in love with the 30-year-old Cate Blanchett. Nothing so strange in that you might thing – except he starts aging backward. But let’s face it – they’ll both need nappies on their 50th wedding anniversary…

After a seemingly endless development process, Fincher is finally ready to shoot the movie. He kicks off on 6 November in New Orleans.
