Sony’s GameStop Movie Gets Vincent D’Onofrio and More “Dumb Money”
Sebastian Stan, Seth Rogen, and three additional cast members have joined the cast of “Dumb Money,” which is still in production. According to Deadline, actors Anthony Ramos from Hamilton, Dane DeHaan from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and Vincent D. Onofrio from Daredevil have all signed on to the next GameStop film.
Craig Gillespie, who previously worked with Rogen and Stan on the successful Hulu miniseries Pam & Tommy, will helm the film based on Ben Mezrich’s The Antisocial Network. Rebecca Angelo and Lauren Schuker Blum are the authors. Shailene Woodley, Pete Davidson, and Paul Dano all appear with Stan and Rogen in the film.
The synopsis of the movie states, “The film chronicles the story of riches earned and lost overnight in the David-vs.-Goliath GameStop short squeeze that might have ended up transforming Wall Street forever.”
It provides a compelling account of how a loosely connected collection of private investors and online trolls on the WallStreetBets subreddit brought down one of the largest hedge funds on Wall Street, serving as the catalyst for a revolution that threatened to overthrow the status quo.
Michael Heimler, John Friedberg, Andrew Swett, Angelo, Schuker Blum, Mezrich, Johnny Holland, and Kevin Ulrich will serve as executive producers of Dumb Money, along with twin brothers Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss who gained notoriety for their involvement in the creation of Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook. In The Social Network, Armie Hammer portrayed them to fame.
Additionally, Gillespie, Teddy Schwarzman, and Aaron Ryder of Ryder Picture Company are producing it for Black Bear.
