Columbia Pictures Making Enron Movie

Variety is reporting that Columbia Pictures has acquired the screen rights to the Lucy Prebble-written play, Enron, which dramatizes the scandalous rise and fall of the titular energy company. Unlike the Oscar-nominated documentary, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, the new movie will be a regular narrative feature.

Prebble herself will adapt her original play for the big-screen, with Laura Ziskin already in place as producer.
