According to The Hollywood Reporter Michael Lewis is writing the script for a movie version of his classic Liar’s Poker.
Lewis, the author of several nonfiction bestsellers, is a hot commodity in Hollywood following the success of The Blind Side and Moneyball. Liar’s Poker, Lewis’ first book, has been in development at Warners since the early 1990s. The property picked up momentum recently as Lewis’ star has risen and the economic crisis has thrust the inner workings of Wall Street into the public consciousness.
Boomerang is Lewis’s latest book.
