Kwietniowski and Maurice Chauvet’s script is based on Gary Ross’ nonfiction book “Stung.” Driver will portray the girlfriend of Brian Molony (Hoffman), a mild-mannered Toronto bank manager with a gambling problem who was given unsupervised access to a $20 million account — and gambled away $12 million of it over 18 months.

Alliance Atlantis prexy Seaton McLean will produce the black comedy with Andras Hamori’s H2O Motion Pictures and Edward R. Pressman Corp.’s Alessandro Camon. Pressman and Sean Furst serve as exec producers.
