The early reviews are positive. Given how great the book is, I expect this could be a big film. (Or maybe people will just ignore it, to their misfortune.)

From what I see, the focus is on Dr. Michael Burry, he arguably did the first credit default swaps on mortgage bonds, betting against the banks. He also figures prominently in Lewis' book. Then there's the guy who set the whole thing in motion, Gregg Lippmann a Deutsches Bank trader played by Ryan Gosling in the film, mysteriously cast as Jared Vennett. Why in the fuck does Hollywood do this? Everybody knows he's Gregg Lippmann.
