On Wednesday, March 18, the highly anticipated feature film, The Big Short, began shooting in New Orleans.
The movie, which Adam McKay wrote based on Michael Lewis’ The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine, follows “the build-up of the housing and credit bubble during the 2000s that led to the financial crisis of 2007-2010.” But, it’s The Big short’s cast that is getting all of the attention.
Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, and Steve Carell are all starring in the movie. It’s even been rumored that Beyonce might join the cast.
Most of last week’s filming to place on Carondelet St between Common St and Canal St in New Orleans.
