In the grand recent tradition of such ripped from reality hit films as The Social Network, Captain Phillips and The Wolf of Wall Street comes The Big Short and a host of fantastic auditions for actors of all ages as well. This gripping true story effected countless people around the globe and now the story will be told on the big screen with a big, all-star cast.
The Big Short will be based on the non-fiction best seller by author Michael Lewis whose novel chronicling the behind the scenes drama during the construction of a major league baseball team was adapted into the 6-time Academy Award nominated Moneyball. In this film the focus will be on the causes and effects of the global economic meltdown of the late 2000’s and a group of men that somehow made millions of dollars amidst the ruin.
The cast of The Big Short will feature Oscar nominee Ryan Gosling (Drive, Lars and the Real Girl, The Ides of March) alongside a trio of superstar Academy Award nominees and winners – Brad Pitt (Fight Club, World War Z, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford), Christian Bale
(Batman Begins, 3:10 to Yuma, American Hustle) and Steve Carell (Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, Despicable Me, The Office) making up one of the most truly incredible casts of the year. Leading this formidable foursome will be the equally gifted writer/director Adam McKay whose sterling filmography includes such worldwide hits as The Other Guys, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and Step Brothers.
