Well fuck Margin Call, Uwe Boll is about to shoot his testosterone all over the 2008 economic meltdown and put a gory stamp on a period of time that many Americans are still trying to recover from. Boll, the profane auteur behind some truly awful (or awesome, depending on your perspective and/or proclivity for glue inhalation) will begin shooting (no “no pun intended”) The Bailout in Vancouver in the beginning of April.
There has been no official synopsis yet but THR reports that the film will center around Jim, “an average New Yorker who loses everything because of the 2008 Wall Street financial crisis, and who strikes back by targeting investment bankers for assassination.”
No word yet on who will play “Jim” in Boll’s violent revenge fantasy, but I’m pretty sure Jason Statham just got half a roll of nickels in his pocket from the mini-synopsis. Also, Nic Cage could be a match since I’m pretty sure the government confiscated his ability to say no.
