The director is attached to the film adaptation of Michael Lewis’s The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine. The film is faced on the housing and budget crisis of the 2000s. McKay is writing the script for the film, which is being produced by Brad Pitt’s Plan B and Paramount.
Michael Lewis has the amazing ability to take complex formulas and concepts and turn them into page turners. Plan B and I connected over that breathless quality the book has.
