Although Will Ferrell has Holmes and Watson coming out this holiday season, his buddy Adam McKay is putting the finishing touches a very different movie for Annapurna Pictures. Vice finds him following up on his Oscar-nominated film The Big Short with another potential awards contender, once again applying his comedic skills to politics in the form of a satirical Dick Cheney biopic. Christian Bale transforms himself to become Vice President Cheney while Amy Adams plays his wife Lynne, Sam Rockwell plays George W. Bush and Steve Carell plays Donald Rumsfeld. It’s hard not to be reminded of Oliver Stone’s W., but something tells me this one is going to be a lot more savage. Vice hits theatres on Christmas Day; check out the first trailer after the jump and see what you think.
