Money Monster International Trailer Released
O’Connell, the star of Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken, and the Academy Award-winning Julia Roberts join Clooney for the fast paced, character-driven thriller written by Jamie Linden. Daniel Dubiecki, who worked with Clooney on Up in the Air, and Lara Alameddine developed the script along with Foster.
Clooney stars as Lee Gates, a pretentious TV stock vendor, whose program (the main “Money Monster”), and life, are taken prisoner by a outraged gunman. As much of the world watches live, Gates must keep himself alive and, with assistance from the lady who produces the show, reveal reality behind a tangle of big money lies.
Said to be “taught and tense,” Money Monster develops in close continuous. Roberts will play the producer.
Dubiecki and Alameddine’s The Allegiance Theater are producing together with Clooney and his Smokehouse Pictures accomplice Grant Heslov. Alan DiFore and Jim Kouf wrote the original story TriStar will release Money Monster in theaters on May 13, 2016.
