As the New Year arrives, another movie is underway. An all-star cast has just been announced with Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt being enlisted to star in the upcoming film.
Under the team up of Paramount and Brad Pitt through his production company Plan B Entertainment, a movie will be made as an adaptation of the bestseller “The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine,” written by Michael Lewis.
Pitt and Plan B, who had previously made adaptations of Lewis’ two other books “Moneyball” and “The Blind Side,” will be producing the film. The movie’s script, as well as the directing, will be handled by Adam McKay.
With Pitt involved in the production alongside DeDe Gardner, it is believed that the cast to be enlisted for the movie will be filled by A-listers within the industry and will most likely play the movie’s key financial players.
Among the actors enlisted to star in the film are Bale and Gosling. Bale is represented by WME and is set for the shooting of the “The Deep Blue Good-by” this spring. On the other hand, Gosling is currently working under the production of the thriller movie “The Nice Guy,” directed by Shane Black for the Warner Bros. He is represented by Anonymous Content and LBI Entertainment.
As of the moment, Paramount has not given further details on the movie’s proceedings. The production table has not been set yet, and other discussions on the movie’s cast are still in due process.
Lewis’ “The Big Short” is a nonfiction novel with the story’s setting placed during the 2000s on the build-up of the housing and credit bubble, which later caused the financial crisis between the years 2007 and 2010. The story highlighted the key players involved the financial crisis, as well as those who predicted the credit bubble will burst.
