Green / Pacino / Sarandon

After co-starring in HBO's fact-based drama You Don't Know Jack, it looks like Al Pacino and Susan Sarandon are set to work together yet again. Deadline reports the Academy Award winning talents and Eva Green (Casino Royale) will star in Arbitrage, a drama written and directed by Nicholas Jarecki (The Informers). The film is set to shoot early next year and will see Pacino as a a hedge-fund magnate who struggles to complete the sale of his trading business to a big bank before the level of fraud is exposed. Aside from a shady business, the hedge fund guy juggles a wife (Sarandon) and an art dealer mistress (Green), as well as some vicious rivals.

The film is another in an increasing number of films focusing on the financial crisis, bank fraud and shady investment-type characters. Fortunately, while the films seem to be as plentiful as the number of Iraq War centric films from a few years back, the variety has been more pleasant. Comedies like The Other Guys and the forthcoming action comedy Tower Heist deal with greedy financing executives while dramas like the forthcoming ensemble drama Margin Call and George Hickenlooper's final film Casino Jack take a more dramatic approach. The cast for Arbitrage is certainly enticing, but I'm weary of getting overloaded on depressing films dealing with the shaky economic times. How about you?

Im really learning how to identify good material in H-wood. This sounds like it'll be as good as it gets and has nowhere to go but down.
