The New York City Stock Exchange (NYSE) is expected to launch its own live-action movie based on a popular meme, the Wall Street Journal reports.
The film will be a comedic fantasy comedy about a young girl named Rose who lives in a dystopian world that is ruled by her father, a villain named Darksider.
“The new movie is a comedic tribute to the internet, but with a dark twist,” a spokesperson for the NYSE told the Journal.
“It’s based on the internet and has been a favorite meme on social media.”
The movie will be shot in New York and will star Jennifer Connelly, Kevin Hart, Jessica Alba, John Goodman and James Marsden.
The NYSE also plans to release a short film based on Darksiders theme song.
“We’re going to have a few things coming out soon, but we’re excited about it,” a spokesman for the exchange told the WSJ.
The news comes on the heels of another popular meme that has gained traction on social networks, which is “Fancy Flashes,” which has been used more than 10 million times since its launch on Instagram.
In the film, the characters in the film are dressed in colorful outfits and go through a variety of scenarios.
“In one of the scenes, the kids get into a car accident and Darkside gets in,” the movie’s official description reads.
“He’s in the passenger seat.
He tells the kids ‘I’m Darksides father and he loves you.’
Then he drives off.”
In another scene, Darksiding is in a room with his father who tells him, “You’re a good kid, but you’re not supposed to have cars.”
“Darksider and Rose are a lot alike,” the NYSEX spokesperson said.
“They both have a sense of humor, and they’re both smart.
They have the same goals: they want to be like their dad.
But there are also some differences.”
The film has garnered attention in part because of its viral popularity on social networking sites, but its popularity has been increasing, according to the Journal’s sources.
In January, the NYSPEX announced that it had sold a total of $9.4 million in stock for its IPO.
