Sony Pictures Classics will launch three films at the Cannes Film Festival this year with Charles Ferguson’s doc “Inside Job” rounding out its roster for the event. Narrated by Matt Damon, the film is an in-depth look at the recent financial crisis and has just been completed, SPC said Sunday.
The company boarded the Ferguson’s project more than eighteen months ago, and is his follow-up to the acclaimed “No End in Sight.” “Inside Job” will join the company’s “You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger” by Woody Allen and “Tamara Drew” by Stephen Frears.”
“Over a year and a half ago, having been great admirers of ‘No End in Sight’, Charles approached us about making a movie about the global economic crisis of 2008 and how it occurred, a documentary film that would be both factual and dramatically riveting,” SPC said in a statement, “With his intelligence and cleverness both as an individual with great expertise on the subject, and as a fine filmmaker, he has done just that.”
The film is produced by Ferguson and Audrey Marrs through their Representational Pictures Company. It is executive produced by Christina Weiss Lurie. It was edited by Chad Beck and Adam Bolt.
“After having immersed myself in research and the making of this film over the past 18 months, I am enormously gratified that ‘Inside Job’ will premiere at Cannes,” Ferguson said, in a statement, “It is my great hope that the film can contribute to national and global debate about this extremely important subject.”
