The film is described in press notes provided by Paramount Pictures, New Regency and Plan B Entertainment as "the remarkable true story of the genius contrarian investors who, recognizing just how insane the housing bubble had become, figured out how to 'short' the market prior to the financial collapse of 2008."

Tomei, Carell and Gosling previously worked together on the 2011 comedy Crazy Stupid Love.
