Is this not the most handsome cast ever assembled? Probably.

Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt are teaming up to star in Adam McKay - he of Anchorman fame - and his first drama film.

The Big Short was an international bestseller, cataloguing the events that lead to the credit bubble in 2008.

Adam McKay's been quite vocal about the financial crisis, regularly taking to Twitter to speak his mind on the issue.

He also directed a short for the anthology film We The Economy and is keen to break away from comedy.

This will be McKay's first drama, and no doubt the pressure is on him to get it right.

Can he do it? We think so. We interviewed McKay when he was over for Anchorman 2 and he struck as a smart and competent director, so here's hoping.
