Demi Moore joins Zachary Quinto and Kevin Spacey in Margin Call
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Demi Moore is the latest to join the cast of the highly relevant MARGIN CALL. The cast includes Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany, Simon Baker, Stanley Tucci, Zachary Quinto and Penn Badgley. The film follows eight people during the first 24 hours of the Wall Street financial crisis. The subject matter of the film is both interesting and timely, but the longer they take to release it, the less likely they’re going to be to capitalize on recent events. It also sounds a little like THE COMPANY MEN, which is also trying to get released to coincide with the still down-trodden economy. J.C. Chandor will direct from a script he wrote.
I like the mature themes this film is going to be dealing with, but I guess my only concern is that they’re following too many people. Eight characters with equal time is a lot to focus on, so I hope they’re able to give everyone the screen time they need to tell their stories.
