January 14 Brad Pitt, Christian Bale and Ryan Gosling to Star in ‘The Big Short’

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.

January 07 Americanah

When we ran into David Oyelowo at last night’s Palm Springs International Film Festival Gala, we wanted to know — what’s next after Selma? You’re not going to believe how good the answer was.

The actor is re-teaming with Brad Pitt’s production company Plan B on a film version of Americanah, the best-selling 2013 novel by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

“I’m about to do Americanah with (Pitt, now quite the BFF) as well with Lupita Nyong’o,” said Oyelowo, who brought his wife Jessica and two of their four children to the event (including his son Caleb, who got a big happy birthday shout-out from dad on stage). “We have to find a director and a writer and all that good stuff. We’ll be playing a couple in that. It’s an epic story that follows these two Nigerians who fall in love in high school, and she goes off to America and he goes off to the U.K. They basically are suddenly immigrants in these countries. He goes back and becomes affluent again in Nigeria and it’s their journey back to each other.”

December 09 Oprah Gets Emotional Talking About ‘Selma’

For Oprah Winfrey, the story told in the upcoming historical drama Selma is as important today as it ever was, and her passion for the project is evident.

At the Selma: The Legends Who Paved the Way gala, held on Saturday, Oprah walked the red carpet and spoke with ET’s Kevin Frazier about the importance of the film in today’s political climate.

“You know I have always believed in divine timing. In my own life things just happen as they should. This film has been … maybe seven to eight years in the making,” Oprah shared.

The film, which Oprah co-produced under Harpo Productions alongside Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment, is a historical period piece with a massive ensemble cast, but had a limited budget – which has been estimated at around $20 million. It was a challenge that few directors wanted to take on, except for indie director Ava DuVernay.
