Flash Boys movie

Michael Lewis isn’t a Hollywood guy per se, but he has been behind a couple of big recent hits. Best Picture nominees The Blind Side and Moneyball were both based on books of his, and movies based on his tomes Liar’s Poker and The Big Short are both in the works.

Now Sony and producer Scott Rudin are getting close to picking up his latest bestseller, Flash Boys. The tome centers around a group of Wall Street guys who, dismayed to realize how rigged the stock market is, band together to reform their industry. Think of it as the anti-Wolf of Wall Street. More details after the jump.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of an Unexpected Journey
When I walked out of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the first thing I said to someone was “After they release the other two movies, some fan will edit a cut of the three films into a great three hour movie.” Its funny how things change — with the Lord of the Rings films we were clamoring for extended editions, but now we think less is more (it may have something to do with the fact this is one and a half books stretched to three movies vs. three books adapted into three films).

We still haven’t gotten the third chapter of Peter Jackson‘s Hobbit adaptation, but some fan has edited the first two movies into a trailer for a mash-up movie titled The Hobbit: The Desolation of an Unexpected Journey. Lets hope that once The Hobbit: There and Back Again is released, a good editor will combine the three adaptations into one three-hour-long movie cut. For now, you can watch the epic mash-up The Hobbit: The Desolation of an Unexpected Journey embedded after the jump.
