The projects are a part of a second-look pact between the studio and shingle.

MGM and Plan B are going into business together.

The studio has inked a novel second look pact with Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner's Plan B, setting new features from Minari director Lee Isaac Chung and Bad Education helmer Cory Finley.

Chung, who worked with Plan B on his Sundance-winning Minari, will write and direct an untitled New York-set feature, described as a sweeping love story.

The logline reads: "A young man lost in corporate drudgery, who finds love with a beautiful young woman from Hong Kong only to break up with her out of fear of settling down. Feeling lost in life, he sets out on a madcap quest to find himself, which leads him to realize he had already found true love in her.  When he goes back to find her, he learns it's too late, she's gone, and now he must go to Hong Kong, on the greatest adventure of all, to get her back."

Finley will adapt the National Book Award-winning Landscape With Invisible Hand. The M.T. Anderson-penned story is set in the wake of an alien invasion and follows teen artist Adam Costello as he and his family adjust to a broken economy. Annapurna Pictures will produce alongside Plan B.

Plan B, which has a first-look deal with Warner Bros that was signed in April, is currently working with the studio on an adaptation of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ The Water Dancer, and the adaptation of bestseller Women Talking with Frances McDormand set to star.
