After diving into the economic crisis of 2008, The Big Short’s Adam McKay is taking aim at one of Washington’s most polarizing figures.
Sources tell Variety that Christian Bale, Steve Carell, and Amy Adams are in talks to star in McKay’s untitled Dick Cheney biopic for Paramount. Sources say Bale is on board to play the former vice president, Carell would portray Donald Rumsfeld, and Adams would play Lynne Cheney.
McKay’s Gary Sanchez Productions and Brad Pitt’s Plan B is on board to produce.
