‘Margin Call’ Movie Poster Revealed

[No photo]

One of the top 10 screenplays listed on The Black List this year was a script by JC Chandor titled Margin Call. The film, which is set to premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, is “Based on true events,” and chronicles the final twenty-four hours of Lehman Brothers. The movie is set to premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival with Chandor at the helm and starring Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Irons, Stanley Tucci, and Demi Moore. I always love dramatic thrillers set in an isolated amount of time or one location, and this film seems to fit both categories. See more photos from the film in our previous preview posting, and hit the jump to see the full one-sheet.

Sundance 2011 First Look: ‘Margin Call’

One of the top 10 screenplays listed on The Black List this year was a script by JC Chandor titled Margin Call.

While I often refer to The Black List as a annual list of the best unproduced screenplays in Hollywood, that isn’t actually the case — the list is compiled with a poll of 300 development executives and high-level assistants, and contains a ranking of the hot screenplays making the rounds in Hollywoodland, which were written in, or are somehow uniquely associated with, 2010 and will not be released in theaters during this calendar year. Basically, the black list contains the hottest projects in Hollywood that you haven’t heard of yet. Some of the screenplays have been acquired and some are even in production. Margin Call was actually in the can before the list was even released.

“Based on true events,” the film chronicles the final twenty-four hours of Lehman Brothers. The movie is set to premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival with Chandor at the helm and starring Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Irons, Stanley Tucci, and Demi Moore. I always love dramatic thrillers set in an isolated amount of time or one location, and this film seems to fit both categories. Check out the first photos from the movie after the jump.

Power! Sex! Decadence! That’s the promise of Showtime’s new series The Borgias. The show seems to act as a spiritual successor to The Tudors, but ups the ante by casting Jeremy Irons as the infamous Cardinal Borgia, who became Pope Alexander IV in 1492. And Neil Jordan acts as exec producer and directs the first two episodes. See the trailer for what Showtime bills as ‘the original crime family,’ after the break. Read More »

Jeremy Irons Joins the Cast of Margin Call

The financial drama Margin Call, which started shooting a couple of weeks ago in New York City, has assembled quite the all-star cast. The latest addition to writer/director J.C. Chandor‘s picture is Jeremy Irons. What started off sounding like a so-so film that is being made quickly to jump in on the very topical financial crisis now has such line-up of talent that it could be impossible to ignore. Very curious to see a trailer, but for now we’ve just got the info on the whole cast breakdown. Read More »

Showtime is going to make Neil Jordan‘s dreams come true. The filmmaker has toyed with projects involving the history of Renaissance family the Borgias for some time, and now Showtime has ordered a series for which Jordan will be executive producer. The Borgias will star Jeremy Irons as Rodrigo Borgia, and Jordan will direct the first two episodes. Read More »
