Variety has revealed plans for Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling and Christian Bale to star together in The Big Short. Sources tell the outlet that the threesome, (pun intended) have come on board to Paramount and Plan B’s adaptation of the movie, in-which Adam McKay is writing and directing.
The film 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.
Pitt will produce the film with his partner in Plan B productions, Dede Gardner.
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, reports Variety.
Gosling just wrapped production on the Warner Bros. thriller “The Nice Guys.” He is repped by Anonymous Content and LBI Entertainment.
