Apple Lands Feature Film ‘Beanie Bubble’ Starring Zach Galifianakis – Deadline

Apple Original Films has landed the rights to the package The Beanie Bubble, a new film hailing from Imagine Entertainment that will be co-directed by Kristin Gore and Damian Kulash and starring Zach Galifianakis, Elizabeth Banks, Sarah Snook and Geraldine Viswanathan.

The film is inspired by the story behind one of the biggest speculative crazes that blazed through American culture in the 90s. It pulls back the curtain on the absurdities and injustices of the American Dream — particularly the female relationship to it. It’s a celebration of the women who helped power Ty Warner’s success, whose strengths and good instincts shaped and amplified the phenomenon, but whose names are not on the Beanie Babies’ heart-shaped tags.  

Produced by Imagine Entertainment’s Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Karen Lunder, President of Imagine Features, the pic marks the first film order to hail from an exclusive, first-look deal between Apple and Imagine Entertainment for scripted films. The film is written by Gore, who also co-directs alongside Kulash. The married directing duo developed the story together, and Gore wrote the screenplay, which is based on the book The Great Beanie Baby Bubble: Mass Delusion and the Dark Side of Cute. In addition to starring, Galifianakis serves as executive producer.

Galifianakis is repped by UTA, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and attorney Jared Levine (Yorn Levine Barnes Krintzman Rubenstein Kohner Endlich & Gellman) Banks is repped by Untitled Entertainment, UTA and Johnson Shapiro Slewerr & Kole. Snook is repped by UTA, Shanahan Management and Jennifer Rawlings at Omni Artists. Viswanathan is repped by WME, 3 Arts and Sloane, Offer, Weber and Dern.
