Recently, it was revealed that 20th Century Studios is developing a new untitled film about the founder of Bumble, Whitney Wolfe Herd.

Disney hasn’t officially announced the any details on the film, but its based on real life story has been inspired by the story of Whitney Wolfe Herd, who co-founded Tinder but left in 2014 and launched the competitor, Bumble. When the company went public in 2021, Wolfe Herd became one of the youngest self-made billionaires at the age of 31. She stepped down as the CEO of the company in 2023.

The new film will star Lily James in the lead role and be produced by her. It will also star Myha’la Herrold and Jackson White.

Deadline has revealed that Dan Stevens has joined the cast of the new 20th Century Studios film, though its not been revealed what part he will be playing, though its expected he will play one of Herd’s business partners.

Dan Stevens has worked with Disney on many different projects over the years including “Welcome To Chippendales”, “Legion”, “Solar Opposites” and “Beauty And The Beast”.

Ethea Entertainment’s Jennifer Gibgot and Andrew Panay will also be working as producers on the project. Gala Gordon is also an executive producer, and Sarah Shepard will be overseeing the project for 20th Century Studios.

It is being directed by Rachel Lee Goldenberg, who has also worked on the script with Bill Parker and Kim Caramele. The movie is currently in pre-production and will begin filming later this year in Los Angeles.

It’s unclear if this film will be released in cinemas first, or if it will be released directly onto Hulu and Disney+.
