Warren Buffett is to be played by Ed Asner. Hank Paulson will be played by William Hurt, who may need to change a bit to obtain the frazzled look that Paulso had and James Woods will be Dick Fuld.
The film centers on Hank Paulson, U.S. Treasury Secretary at the time, and Lehman Brothers’ former CEO Dick Fuld.
Other stars in the cast include Billy Crudup, playing Timothy Geithner (President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York at the time - who if I remember right had a vey bad memory whe it came to paying some of his taxes). Paul Giamatti wil play debonair Fed chairman Ben Bernanke. Cynthia Nixon is to be Paulson’s spokeswoman. Tony Shalhoub (Monk) will play Morgan Stanley CEO John Mack.
According to Variety the film will begin production in Manhattan soon and is expected to be shown on HBO in 2011.
