Scheduled for a Christmas release is a film adaptation of Moneyball author Michael Lewis’s book The Big Short by Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment. Directed by Funny or Die co-founder Adam McKay, The Big Short stars Pitt alongside Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling and Steve Carrell. The film chronicles the exploits of the foursome during the financial crisis of 2007 through 2010, where they bet against the U.S. economy to ultimately profit from the bursting of the artificially propped-up housing and credit bubble. Anticipate The Big Short to be released on December 23.
