The Jake Schreier-directed film will close out Phase 5 of the MCU on July 26, 2024. Deadline had previously reported Pugh, Russell and Stan as likely castings. Plot details are scarce, but Thunderbolts revolves around a group of villains who are sent on missions commissioned by the government.

News: GameStop Stock Pic ‘Dumb Money’ Sets A-List Cast With Paul Dano, Seth Rogen, Sebastian Stan & Pete Davidson; Black Bear To Launch Sales Of Craig Gillespie’s Film At Toronto

Deadline – GameStop Stock Pic ‘Dumb Money’ Sets A-List Cast With Paul Dano, Seth Rogen, Sebastian Stan & Pete Davidson; Black Bear To Launch Sales Of Craig Gillespie’s Film At Toronto.

EXCLUSIVE: After signing on to the project in April, Craig Gillespie has lined up an all-star cast of faces familiar to the director. Sources tell Deadline that Paul Dano, Seth Rogen, Sebastian Stan and Pete Davidson are on board for Black Bear Pictures’ Dumb Money, an adaptation of Ben Mezrich’s book The Antisocial Network, with Gillespie directing. Rebecca Angelo & Lauren Schuker Blum are adapting with Ryder Picture Company’s Aaron Ryder, Black Bear’s Teddy Schwarzman and Gillespie producing.

Deadline has been all over this project going back to when the film was set up at MGM, which landed the rights to Mezrich’s manuscript in January. The project recently moved over to Black Bear, which is planning to launch sales on the film at this month’s Toronto Film Festival through its Black Bear International division led by John Friedberg. Executive producers include Michael Heimler, Friedberg, Andrew Swett, Angelo, Schuker Blum, Mezrich, Johnny Holland, Tyler Winklevoss, Cameron Winklevoss and Kevin Ulrich.

Black Bear Pictures is fully financing, with Black Bear International handling the foreign distribution rights. UTA Independent Film Group is representing the U.S. rights to the film.

Principal photography will begin in October on Dumb Money, which tells the story of fortunes won and lost overnight in the David-vs.-Goliath GameStop short squeeze that might have ended up changing Wall Street forever. It offers a gripping portrayal of how a loosely affiliated group of private investors and internet trolls on a subreddit called WallStreetBets took down one of the biggest hedge funds on Wall Street, firing the first shot in a revolution that threatened to upend the establishment.

“Black Bear has diamond hands for Dumb Money,”Schwarzman said. “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.”

Gillespie, Rogen and Stan have been looking for something to team on following the success of their Hulu limited series Pam & Tommy, and this fit in their wheelhouse of stories that seem to wild to be true. As for Pam & Tommy, not only was the series one of Hulu’s bigger hits of the year, it earned Emmy nominations for all three, along with Best Limited Series and six other noms.

As for Dano, he already is gaining some awards season momentum with his performance as Burt Fabelman in Steven Spielberg’s The Fabelmans, which premieres next week at the Toronto Film Festival. He also earned rave reviews as the Riddler in Warner Bros. box office smash The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves.

Besides Pam & Tommy, Rogen is gaining his own awards-season buzz in The Fabelmans as well, where he plays the uncle of the main character. He also recently was seen in the Emmy-nominated Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers.

Stan also delivered a noteworthy performance in the black comedy thriller Fresh, alongside Daisy Edgar-Jones. He next will star in Sharper and A Different Man.

Davidson most recently was in Bodies Bodies Bodies for A24. He is in production on the Peacock series Bupkis, alongside Joe Pesci and Edie Falco.

Dano is repped by WME and Anonymous Content, Rogen by UTA and Principal Entertainment LA and Stan by CAA and Brookside Artist Management. Gillespie is represented by UTA and Rumble Media, and Davidson, Angelo, Blum and Mezrich are repped by CAA. Ryder Picture Company is repped by UTA.

Black Bear has been rapidly expanding from its origins as an independent film production and financing company into a multifaceted studio across film and television. The recent formation of UK distributor, Black Bear UK, strategically complements Black Bear’s Canadian releasing arm, Elevation Pictures, and comes on the heels of the creation of Double Agent, a joint venture with New Regency, focused exclusively on the production and financing of premium unscripted content.

News/Video: Lily James & Sebastian Stan On Disappearing Into The Roles Of ‘Pam & Tommy’

Deadline – Lily James & Sebastian Stan On Disappearing Into The Roles Of ‘Pam & Tommy’

[Note: * The panel is available at the article link and the screencaps for it were posted here]

One of the jaw-dropping moments from this past Emmy season has been watching British period actress and Downton Abbey star Lily James go full on blonde bombshell as tabloid tortured Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson in Hulu’s limited series Pam & Tommy, up for ten Primetime nominations. Ditto for Sebastian Stan, known for his work as Marvel anti-hero Bucky Barnes, who went total method in transforming himself into acerbic, off-the-wall Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, who loved Pam so dearly that it arguably took a toll on her career back in the 1990s.

The Robert Siegel-D.V. DeVincentis-Seth Rogen executive produced series based on the Rolling Stone Amanda Chicago Lewis article sheds light on how the couple’s homemade sex tape became public. In short, they didn’t leak it. It all boiled down to contractor Rand Gauthier, played by Rogen, who was greatly cheated out of cash by the drummer. Gauthier broke into the couple’s safe, made copies of the tape and sold it to some riches, before the video was in turn stolen from him, seeped widely onto the booming internet of the early 1990s.

James, Stan, Rogen, Seigel and DeVincentis spoke with us for a special Deadline virtual screening of Pam & Tommy.

James, commenting on the “very long process” of how she metamorphized herself into the airy Anderson, tells us “I was very intrigued by the way she spoke, and her humor deflecting, the way she held herself”. The Cinderella actress delve into every single interview, and when that make-up was slapped on, she was in another realm.

Siegel comments, “People come with certain assumptions about Pam” and part of the show entailed “proving them (the audience) wrong and subverting them.” Likewise, the casting of James in the role of the Barb Wire star played into that motif. No one saw James’ sublime disappearing act coming.

For Stan, diving into Lee entailed “repetition every day” over a month’s prep.

“I’d have this routine, get up in the morning, fast for a while, get 20k steps in…and listen to interviews that I had put together. The drum teacher would come by in the afternoon,” Stan explains as he worked on the drummer’s classic stick twirl.

Pam & Tommy‘s Emmy nominations include Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series, Lead Actress in a Limited Series (James), Lead Actor in a Limited Series (Stan), Supporting Actor in a Limited Series (Rogen), Casting for Limited or Anthology Series, Outstanding Contemporary Costumes, Limited or Anthology Series Single Camera Picture Editing, Period-Character Hair, Period-Character Makeup, and Limited or Anthology Series Sound Mixing.

News: Danny Strong, Shonda Rhimes and Other Limited Series Showrunners on Their Emmy-Nominated Series

Hollywood Reporter – The creatives behind “Dopesick,” “The Dropout,” “Inventing Anna,” “Pam & Tommy” and “The White Lotus” take THR behind the scenes of their shows.

Rob Siegel and D.V. DeVincentis, showrunners of Pam & Tommy (Hulu)

DeVincentis: “We did exhaustive research, and Lily [James] would still find things that we didn’t know about that turned out to be crucial to the storytelling. Lily and Sebastian [Stan] were the best custodians of characters I’ve ever seen. Their dedication and their love of the characters is so overwhelming, and it’s all there. And by the way, Sebastian, because his transformation isn’t as extreme, the specificity that he’s using isn’t quite as noticeable, but it’s every bit as potent. Particularly recently, I’ve seen some footage of Tommy Lee talking, and after seeing hours of it after watching Sebastian do it, you’re like, ‘Oh my God, Sebastian was really inhabiting it.’ It was incredible.”

Siegel: “For me, the archival interviews, hearing them talk. You can just learn so much from video footage.”
DeVincentis: “If you watch enough interviews with Pam, particularly the late night interviews, you start to see how brilliantly and with the sort of innate intelligence she handles the situation. You watch what she’s putting up with, and you see her putting up with it. I like to think there’s sort of a larger goal, like she knows people are going to be sexist and gross and shitty to her, but if she gets through it, she gets to talk about things that are really important to her, like animal rights and PETA. And to me, the behavior in watching how she handles really insensitive, crappy people was the most instructive thing about that character to me in terms of research.”
