‘Liar’s’ development making progress

Warner Bros. nabs 'Crazy Stupid Love' directors

Warner Bros. is ramping up development of Michael Lewis’ “Liar’s Poker,” with Lewis on board to adapt his book about bond trading and the directing team of John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (“Crazy Stupid Love”) helming.

Project, which has been in development for many years at Warners, is set with Warner-based Bill Gerber.

“Liar’s Poker,” published in 1989, in Lewis’ autobiographical account of his hiring by Salomon Brothers and his recountin in the first person of the intricacies of bond traders and salesmen.

The push to go forward with “LIar’s Poker” comes with studios having adapted two of his books into feature films — “Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game” and “The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game.”

Paramount moved last year to pre-emptively acquire Lewis’ book “The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine” and set that project up with Brad Pitt producing through his Par-based Plan B shingle.

Courtenay Valenti is overseeing “Liar’s Poker” for Warners.
