Back in May, we heard that Kevin Spacey and Zachary Quinto would be heading up the film MARGIN CALL, which centers on eight investment bankers through 24 hours of the disastrous 2008 financial crisis. Now, the film adds some more than marginal talent, in Stanley Tucci and Paul Bettany. Also in the mix is The Mentalist Simon Baker, who is in talks to play a top-level executive, breathing down the necks of his underlings, one of whom is Bettany’s character, a confident trader who refuses to let the impending crisis slow him down.

There’s something oddly enjoyable about a good financial thriller. While it may be hard for some people to handle a movie about a crisis that hasn’t been fully resolved just yet, there should be others who are so disgusted with the greed and corruption that led us to this point, who would welcome a movie that captures their sentiment. One thing is for sure though, with the financial crisis still hitting very close to home for some, rookie writer/director J.C. Chandor better hope that his story is one with which an audience can relate, and not one that will only alienate them.

Does a strong cast make you more interested to see a film about the financial crisis already?  Or is the wound still too open to tell about it happening?
