Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Team on ‘Hustlers at Scores’

Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures and Will Ferrell-Adam McKay’s Gloria Sanchez Productions have acquired film rights to The New York Magazine article “The Hustlers at Scores” by Jessica Pressler.

Ellison and Chelsea Barnard will produce for Annapurna Pictures, and Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Jessica Elbaum will produce for Gloria Sanchez Productions. They are currently out to writers to adapt the story.

“The Hustlers at Scores” was published as a modern twist on the Robin Hood tale, in which a crew of savvy former strip club employees band together to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients. The first sentence reads: “In another life, Roselyn Keo might have liked to work on Wall Street.”

Gloria Sanchez was launched in 2014. It produced Leslye Headland’s comedy “Sleeping With Other People,” which debuted at Sundance and was released by IFC Films.

In February, McKay won the Oscar for best adapted screenplay with Charles Randolph for “The Big Short,” which he also directed.

Annapurna’s credits include “Zero Dark Thirty,” “Foxcatcher,” “Her,” “American Hustle” and “Everybody Wants Some.”

Gersh repped New York Magazine and Pressler in the rights deal.
