“The D Train” directors Andrew Mogel and Jarrad Paul are teaming with Jonah Hill for a film adaptation of the Wired magazine article “Finding a Vegas Poker Bug Made These Guys Rich” to which they recently bought the rights.
Written by Kevin Poulsen, the story follows two hackers who found a glitch in video poker machines that allowed them to amass nearly $1 million in cash. They could use a sequence of buttons to essentially “cash out”.
They were eventually arrested in 2009, though what they were doing wasn’t technically cheating. Mogel and Paul will produce and Hill will executive produce.
