At the end of this first weekend of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival there have been two major buys. One was made by Paramount for Like Crazy, one of the most-praised films at the fest so far. (Look for our review tomorrow morning.) And on the other side of the spectrum, LionsGate and Roadside Attractions have teamed up to buy J.C. Chandor‘s debut feature Margin Call, which has garnered some of the poorer reviews of the fest. Read More »
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.

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.

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 »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
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 »
