ComingSoon.net sits down with The Big Short cast to discuss Adam McKay’s terrifyingly true story of America’s subprime mortgage crisis
Now playing in select theaters, Paramount Pictures and Regency Enterprises‘ The Big Short is set to expand domestically next Wednesday, December 23. Directed by Adam McKay, The Big Short cast includes Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Jeremy Strong and Hamish Linklater, all of whom sat down with ComingSoon.net to chat about the disturbingly true story of America’s recent subprime mortgage crisis.
The Big Short may not be what moviegoers expect from McKay, best known for films like Anchorman and Step Brothers, but if you recall the end credits of his The Other Guys (which broke down how Ponzi schemes work) , you’ll understand why adapting the nonfiction book by Michael Lewis (The Blind Side, Moneyball) was the right fit.
Blending dark humor with real world drama, The Big Short follows four outsiders who saw what the big banks, media and government refused to: the pending global collapse of the economy. They had an idea: The Big Short. Their bold investment leads them into the dark underbelly of modern banking where they must question everyone and everything.
The Big Short cast also includes Brad Pitt, Melissa Leo, John Magaro, Rafe Spall, Marisa Tomei and Finn Wittrock.
A Plan B Entertainment production, The Big Short is executive produced by Louise Rosner-Meyer and Kevin Messick, with Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, and Arnon Milchan serving as producers. Charles Randolph and Adam McKay wrote the script.
