Paramount Pictures has sprung a surprise new entry into the awards-season mix, setting the Adam McKay-directed adaptation of the Michael Lewis book The Big Short to be AFI’s closing-night gala film on November 12 before it opens limited on December 11 and goes wide December 23. That adds another film to what is shaping up to be the most competitive year-end movie market in recent memory.

The studio today releases its first trailer for a Paramount/New Regency film that stars Christian Bale, Brad Pitt, Melissa Leo, Marisa Tomei, Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling. Written by Charles Randolph and McKay, the pic is based on Lewis’ book, The Big Short: Inside The Doomsday Machine, about the buildup of the housing and credit bubble during the 2000s. When four outsiders saw what the big banks, media and government refused to see — the 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.

Two seemingly disparate bits of recent news have collided this week. On Friday (May 8) Domenica restaurant (New Orleans) will close for a day-long production shoot of a scene for actor Brad Pitt’s new movie, “The Big Short.”

Pitt made news Wednesday with word that he and wife Angelina Jolie are selling their French Quarter mansion. (Pitt’s manager says don’t worry; the couple still loves the city.) Domenica chef and co-owner Alon Shaya made news Monday with the announcement he’d won a James Beard Award in the Best Chef: South category.

Domenica general manager Steve Jeffcoat would only confirm that the restaurant will be closed all day Friday but would not offer details about who might be on location for the scene.
