Brad Pitt, Christian Bale & Ryan Gosling in One Movie: The Big Short

This morning while checking out my favorite sites, I read this news about another star studded upcoming film and I can't help but share this to my readers. I am a big fan of Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt and Christian Bale and if ever I will get the chance to meet them in person, I'm going to hug them real tight even if they have body guards around, who cares! :D but just the same, we are excited for this movie.

The Big Short, a project starring Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, and Ryan Gosling. I believe they call that Hollywood Bingo because this three are BIG actors.
The film, from Pitt’s production company Plan B, reunites the actor/producer with Michael Lewis, the author of Moneyball, and The Blind Side. This new project, based on Lewis’s book The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine, tells the story of the housing and credit bubble of the early 2000s that led to the financial crisis of 2007-2010. During the period of the crisis itself, Hollywood made several attempts to capture the climate of greed and economic despair with films like 2011’s Margin Call, 2010’s The Company Men, and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. None really landed as classic or enduring depictions of the crisis but, perhaps, with some greater distance (and an all-star cast), The Big Short will have a greater chance at resonating with viewers.

Lewis’s book follows several key players in every aspect of the housing and credit crises, so look for more big names to join Gosling, Bale, and Pitt. Variety is predicting a Traffic-esque ensemble of A-list actors. But the biggest surprise here has nothing at all to do with casting. Adam McKay, who is best-known for his comedic work on films like Anchorman and Step-Brothers, is taking on screenwriting duties and possibly directing as well. McKay seems like an odd fit for such a dramatic subject matter but, then again, black humor may be just what The Big Short needs.
