Co-directors Michael McClellan and C.J. Nolan have adapted this timeless tale of human greed and hubris bringing it into modern focus by setting the action straight out of current news headlines detailing corporate bonuses and takeovers, stock manipulations and fraud. As CJ Nolan puts it, “what better place to set a story of greed and lust for power than on Wall Street where ethics and morality give way to profits and capital?”
