Christopher Buckley's Wall Street satire, G-d Is My Broker is being adapted to the big screen by Edward R. Pressman Film Corp., Polsky Films and Stephen Belafonte's WhiteShark Films.

Peter Himmelstein will write the screenplay; Buckley sold Pressman the rights to his 1998 book, which centers on an alcoholic stock broker who gives everything up and joins a monastery. The Hollywood Reporter adds when the monks' vow of poverty begins to take a financial toll, the former broker uses his old skills to save them, turning his new home into a frightning parallel of the world he desperately tried to escape.

No production schedule has been set for G-d Is My Broker.
