MONEY MONSTER is an upcoming drama political thriller film directed by Jodie Foster (The Beaver) and written by Alan Di Fiore, Jim Kouf and Jamie Linden. It stars George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Jack O’Connell, Dominic West, Giancarlo Esposito, and Caitriona Balfe.
In the taut and tense thriller Money Monster, Lee Gates (Clooney) is a bombastic TV personality whose popular financial network show has made him the money wiz of Wall Street. But after he hawks a high tech stock that mysteriously crashes, an irate investor (O’Connell) takes Gates, his crew, and his ace producer Patty Fenn (Roberts) hostage live on air. Unfolding in real time, Gates and Fenn must find a way to keep themselves alive while simultaneously uncovering the truth behind a tangle of big money lies.
