Emma Joins ‘Billionaire Boys Club’

filmnewsimgEmma Roberts is joining Ansel Elgort, Taron Egerton and Kevin Spacey in the movie version of “Billionaires Boys Club.”

Roberts will portray Sydney, the love interest of Elgort’s financial genius Joe Hunt. Egerton will portray tennis pro Dean Karny and Spacey will play high roller Ron Levin.

The film will follow the true story of the rise and fall of Hunt and Karny, who ran a Ponzi scheme called the Billionaire Boys Club — which collapsed when Levin’s investment turned out to be worthless. Hunt turned to murder to raise funds and was convicted in 1987 of killing Levin. Karny served as the state’s witness in the trial.

James Cox (“Wonderland”) is directing from a script he co-wrote with Captain Mauzner.

The project, produced by Holly Wiersma and Cassian Elwes, is being financed by Armory Films with its principals Tim Zajaros and Chris Lemole executive producing. Crystal Lourd, Jere Hausfater and Logan Levy will also executive produce.

Good Universe is launching international sales at the American Film Market.

NBC aired a “Billionaire Boys Club ” miniseries in 1987 with Judd Nelson as Hunt, Ron Silver as Levin and Brian McNamara as Karny.

Roberts stars on “Scream Queens.” She’s repped by CAA.

The news was first reported by The Tracking Board.
