Moneyball is currently blowing up on the other side of the pond with a huge opening weekend and some early Oscar buzz.

On the back of this success, Michael Lewis, the author of Moneyball, is to write the script for an adaptation of another of his books, Liar’s Poker.

The story is an autobiographical account of his time working as a bond trader at Wall Street’s Salomon Brothers in the decadent 1980s. Lewis wrote the novel back in 1989 and its film adaptation is one that has long been in development.

Attached to direct are John Requa and Glenn Ficara who just last weekend unleashed their amusing, moving and smart romantic comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love in UK theatres.
