'Crazy, Stupid, Love' Directors to Adapt Financial Drama 'Liar's Poker'

John Requa and Glenn Ficarra / Liar's Poker

The author just had the adaptation of his book Moneyball hit the big screen last weekend, but now Michael Lewis may have another one of his works heading to theaters. THR reports that Warner Bros. has tapped the author to adapt his own book Liar's Poker into a feature film for Crazy, Stupid, Love directing duo John Requa and Glenn Ficarra. The story is Lewis' own account as he worked as a bond trader at Salomon Brothers in the "go-go '80s" where he witnessed firsthand how economic decisions made at the national level changed securities markets and made bonds the most lucrative game on Wall Street. Read on!

Between Moneyball and The Blind Side (the author also wrote the book that inspired the film), Lewis has a lot of clout in Hollywood. However, Liar's Poker is his first book and an adaptation of the material has been in the works since the early 90's when the story was a bit more relevant. Of course, with all the financial crisis and economic downturn talk making headlines today, it's not hard to see why the project is gaining steam again. In addition, with Requa and Ficarra coming on board to direct, I'm certainly interested to see how they follow-up the impressive family drama and romance that is Crazy, Stupid, Love.
