Kevin Spacey, Zachary Quinto and Carla Gugino to star in Margin Call
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Whenever there’s a national tragedy, I can’t help but wonder when Hollywood will make a movie about it. Although maybe not considered a “tragedy”, the financial collapse and resulting recession of 2008 was definitely eventful enough to merit a major motion picture. It looks like director J.C. Chandor agrees as he’s set to make the film MARGIN CALL, which will cover a hectic 24 hours during the 2008 financial collapse. The film will star Kevin Spacey, Zachary Quinto, Carla Gugino and Stanley Tucci.
Not many actors do dialogue-heavy films better than Spacey (see BIG KAHUNA for reference) and I like the addition of Zachary Quinto to the cast (he’ll also be producing). We don’t have a lot of information about the plot right now, but if done right, this could be a great film.
