Actors Jack Galifianakis, Elizabeth Banks and Inheritance Star Sarah Snook’s upcoming film from Apple Original Films is set to be The Beanie Bubble Headline.
The film, which will be co-directed by Christine Gore and her Grammy Award-winning husband Damian Kulash, will also feature Australian actor Geraldine Viswanathan in a pivotal role, Apple said in a press release.
The Beanie Bubble Jack Bissonet’s book is based on The Great Beanie Baby Bubble: Mass Delusion and the Dark Side of Cute.
It was inspired by the craze of collecting expensive animal toys in the 90s as a financial investment due to their prospective resale value.
The story opens with the absurdity and injustice of the American Dream, especially the feminist relationship. It was a celebration of the women who contributed to the success of Power Tie Warner, their strengths and good instincts that shaped and amplified the phenomenon, but according to the official logline Beanie Babies’ names are not in the heart-shaped tags.
The film will be produced by Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Karen Lander under the banner of Imagine Entertainment. Galifianakis also serves as the executive producer on the project.
