Elizabeth Banks is going to be starring in a movie about the 1990s Beanie Babies bubble. And it’ll apparently be about how men (or ONE man, Ty Warner) took advantage of female employees and fans. And the “injustice of the American Dream.” Or something.
Here’s the writeup:
“The Beanie Bubble” 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.
Here’s more info:
Set to bring the comedy to life is an all-star cast that includes Zach Galifianakis (Between Two Ferns, Baskets), Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, Love and Mercy), Sarah Snook (Succession), and Geraldine Viswanathan (Broken Hearts Gallery). Though we don’t know who will be playing which role yet, judging by the characters and names attached, we’ll place a bet that Galifianakis will play Ty. If this is true, the portrayal of the father of the Beanie Baby is sure to be one with gut-busting humor and deadpan jokes – both of which we would love to see.
