Freakonomics Adaptation Stars at Tribeca Gala

050411_Freakonomics.jpg.jpeg

The Tribeca Film Festival announced yesterday that its closing night gala will feature a showing of Freakonomics: The Movie.

The documentary version of the bestselling book features a whole gang of big-name documentarians, including Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady (Jesus Camp), Seth Gordon (The King of Kong), and Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me). The festival starts on April 21 and you can get your tickets here.

No telling whether the movie will see the same acclaim as the book, but at least it has a built-in sequel.
