ADAM MCKAY TO ADAPT MICHAEL LEWIS' THE BIG SHORT


So apparently the beef Paramount had with Plan B over 12 Years a Slave seems to have simmered down, as a major collaboration has just been announced. Adam McKay, the director of Anchorman, Step Brothers and The Other Guys will adapt and then direct Michael Lewis' book about the pre-recession housing bubble, The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine. It's an acclaimed book from an acclaimed writer, with a pedigree for major cinematic adaptation, after 2009's The Blind Side and 2011's Moneyball.
