Craig Gillespie‘s latest movie is starting to take form. Based on Ben Mezrich‘s The Antisocial Network, which talks about 2021’s GameStop Short Squeeze from r/WallStreetBets, the movie will be called Dumb Money, and begin production later this fall.

Written by Rebecca Angelo and Lauren Schuker Blum, the movie will star Seth Rogen, Paul Dano, Sebastian Stan and Pete Davidson as the lead cast. Initially distributed by MGM, the movie was moved to Black Bear Pictures who are preparing to launch sales for the movie at the Toronto International Film Festival next week.

In a statement, Black Bear’s Teddy Schwartzman expressed his excitement for the movie, stating that “Black Bear has diamond hands for Dumb Money. Lauren & Rebecca have masterfully adapted Ben Mezrich’s exceptional book detailing one of the greatest underdog stories of our time. Craig Gillespie is a tremendous leader with exceptional vision and has assembled a tremendous ensemble. We’re honored to partner with him, Aaron Ryder, and this terrific team in front and behind the camera to bring Dumb Money to audiences everywhere.”

As mentioned above, production will start this fall for a potential 2023 release. Time will tell which studio will ultimately acquire the movie alongside Black Bear.
