Michael Lewis is finally writing a screenplay for Liar’s Poker. Finally. I’ve only been clamoring for it for two and a half years. “John Requa and Glenn Ficarra of Crazy, Stupid, Love will direct“. Liar’s Poker tells the story of Lewis’ time as a bond salesman at Salomon Brothers, the firm that pretty much created mortgage bonds. The leveraging of which, you might remember, were at least partly responsible for our current economic troubles. Why wasn’t this movie made 2 years ago?
I went through my archives to see how many times I talked about them making this movie. 9 times. 9 times since February, 2009 I’ve wondered why the movie hadn’t been made. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. Now what am I going to write about?
