    The trailer for The Big Short has been released! The film will have it’s world premiere on the 12th November as the closing night selection of November’s AFI Fest in Los Angeles and Paramount will release the film in theaters in limited release on the 11th December and then wide on the 23rd December.

    From The Hollywood Reporter: “In a surprise move, Paramount Pictures has slotted Adam McKay’s The Big Short for a late 2015 release, giving it a shot in this year’s Oscar race. The film, which stars Christian Bale, Brad Pitt, Melissa Leo, Marisa Tomei, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Finn Wittrock, wasn’t expected to be released until 2016.

    Paramount will release the film in limited release on Dec. 11 and then wide on Dec. 23.

    The film also will make its world premiere as AFI’s closing night film on Nov. 12.

    Based on Michael Lewis’ best seller, The Big Short chronicles the men who made millions from a global economic meltdown and those who tried to stop it. When four outsiders saw what the big banks, media and government refused to acknowledge, they had an idea: The Big Short. Their bold investment led them into the dark underbelly of modern banking where they must question everyone and everything.

    Charles Randolph and McKay wrote the screenplay.

    When it opens wide during the Christmas frame, The Big Short will square off against five other wide releases including two adult-skewing dramas: the Will Smith starrer Concussion and the latest David O. Russell-Jennifer Lawrence partnership, Joy. Also opening that weekend are the Will Ferrell-Mark Wahlberg comedy Daddy’s Home, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip and the Point Break remake. Star Wars: The Force Awakens also will be in its second weekend in theaters. Last week, Oliver Stone’s Snowden moved out of the Christmas frame to 2016, opening up the slot for The Big Short.”

    From Variety: “Following the success of “Moneyball,” Brad Pitt and his Plan B shingle have assembled an all-star cast for the next adaptation of a Michael Lewis bestseller.

    Sources tell Variety that Pitt, Christian Bale and Ryan Gosling have come on board to star in “The Big Short,” Paramount and Plan B’s adaptation “The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine,” which Adam McKay is writing and directing.

    Lewis’ nonfiction tome tells the story of the build-up of the housing and credit bubble during the 2000s that led to the financial crisis of 2007-2010. Paramount had no comment.

    Pitt will produce with DeDe Gardner through their Plan B banner. Production start date is unknown.

    The book follows several key people who played a role in creating the disastrous credit bubble. The feature adaptation will likely feature several A-list actors who have similiar-sized roles, similar to the cast of “Traffic” or “The Counselor.”

    As with “Moneyball,” Pitt has been very passionate about getting this adaptation onto the bigscreen.

    His Plan B company has built a reputation for serious dramas that tackle important issues, with “12 Years a Slave” landing last year’s best picture Oscar and “Selma” deep in the Oscar race this year.

    Pitt, who is repped by CAA and Brillstein Entertainment, was last seen in “Fury.” The WME-repped Bale was last seen in “Exodus: Gods and Kings” and will shoot the Travis McGee pic “The Deep Blue Goodby” this spring.

    Gosling just wrapped production on the Warner Bros. thriller “The Nice Guys.” He is repped by Anonymous Content and LBI Entertainment.”
