Brad Pitt Produces ‘Dr. Q’ Biopic on an Undocumented Immigrant Who Became a Brain Surgeon

Back in 2013, we published an article from CNN Health about a migrant worker who studied his way to neurosurgeon. You can see that article here. Now,  Dr. Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa will see his life story play out on screen. Disney confirmed Monday that it partnered with Plan B, Brad Pitt’s production company, to produce a movie about Dr. Q. No actors have formally been attached to the film yet but Plan B and Disney have opted to hire award-winning playwright and screenwriter Matt Lopez for the script who has written movies like The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Race to Witch Mountain.

We can’t wait to see this inspiring story!

Take a look at Dr. Q’s interview with CNN here:
