Brad Pitt, Christian Bale and Ryan Gosling are teaming up for a Plan B and Paramount’s adaptation of a Michael Lewis best-seller.
The three actors are in various stages of talks to star in The Big Short, the adaptation of Lewis’ takedown of the financial crisis. Lewis is the author of Moneyball, the financial-sports book whose adaptation Pitt starred in and produced in 2011.
Pitt and his Plan B shingle are producing Big Short, which has a script by Adam McKay. McKay is expected to direct the drama, although there is no timetable yet. Paramount had no comment.
The nonfiction book, whose full title is The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine, chronicles the housing and credit bubbles of the 2000s.
Pitt, who brought Lewis’ Moneyball to the big screen, is producing and enlisted Bale and Gosling to star.
The project is not expected to be Bale’s next, though it is still unclear what the Oscar winner’s is eyeing. He was poised to play the late Steve Jobs for an untitled project that was originally set up at Sony (it was eventually put in turnaround and picked up by Universal). He also is attached to star in Fox’s The Deep Blue Goodbye.
