Redford is set to star in the gritty drama, which will center on one man's efforts to survive when left adrift at sea. There's no word yet on how this poor wretch—to be played by Redford—comes to such a terrifying predicament, but Deadline does offer a curious revelation, calling Redford "the sole castmember" of All is Lost. Does this mean Chandor is actually jumping from a fast-paced ensemble drama to an inevitably slow-paced, singularly set solo-piece?
All Is Lost is described as a "man vs. nature" story and will be set "on the water." That could mean ocean, it could mean river, it could mean oversized above-ground swimming pool. Okay, the former is probably the most likely, because Chandor has been scouting the Baja Film Studios in Mexico, which is the locations of the big-ass water tank used in movies such as Titanic.
While J.C. Chandor’s script certainly resonated with Zachary Quinto and his team at Before the Door when they first took it on and still when they shot the film about a year and a half ago, it was a bit up in the air in terms of whether or not Margin Call would still be relevant when it finally hit theaters. Well, the time has come and courtesy of Occupy Wall Street, not only was Quinto’s first instinct justified, but now he’s got one of the timeliest films possible.
Set to premiere in theaters this Friday is Margin Call, a film that follows a crucial day at an investment firm just as the 2008 financial crisis was getting started. Based on the subject matter, and this clip we have to show you,movie-goers should probably expect a fairly tense tone from the film.
While out promoting his upcoming financial crisis drama Margin Call, Zachary Quinto had a little something to offer in terms of his next step in working on Star Trek 2. He says the film is on the “imminent horizon” and just happens to be heading back to LA to get to work on it after he wraps this stint in New York City.
Based on a true story, Margin Call follows a crucial day in the life of an investment bank during the start of the financial crisis back in 2008. That alone sounds interesting, but it’s the cast, which consists of a number of actors who have, quite literally, given me goosebumps in previous performances, that really sell this film. Fortunately, most of the notable names are featured on the poster.
Sporting an amazing cast that includes Stanley Tucci, Zachary Quinto, Kevin Spacey, Demi Moore, Jeremy Irons, Simon Baker, Paul Bettany and Penn Badgley, the film is set during a 24-hour period at the start of the United States financial crisis in 2008. The movie made its debut at this years Sundance Film Festival and also played at the Berlin Film Festival, where it earned strong reviews and was nominated for the latter's Golden Bear Award
Today's press release from Myriad Pictures is the first I'm hearing of the indie film Margin Call, which is bizarre because it boasts a pretty incredible cast
