Pressman and Belafonte Consult with God


Thank You for Smoking executive producer Edward Pressman and associate producer Stephen Belafonte are teaming up for another Christopher Buckley adaptation, a satire titled God Is My Broker, which is set on Wall Street and in a monastery.

Variety says Pressman’s Edward R. Pressman Film Corp. has bought the rights to the Buckley book and will produce with Polsky Films and Belafonte’s WhiteShark Films.

Peter Himmelstein, who is writing comedy-drama The Key Man for Occupant Films (All the Boys Love Mandy Lane), is attached to write the screenplay.

The plot centers on a Wall Street stockbroker who flees to a monastery, only to find monks who are turning their monastery into a corporation.
