If you’re in or around Morristown over the next few days and you think you hear the extremely recognizable laugh of Seth Rogen: you’re not going crazy. In fact, it’s not just him, you’ll have a very good chance of running into a slew of other celebrities.


Saint Elizabeth University will be used as a filming location for the upcoming film, “Dumb Money,” according to the university’s Director of Communications and Marketing, Denise Panyik-Dale.

“Dumb Money” will tell the story of the chaos on Wall Street in January of 2021 after GameStop’s stock skyrocketed thanks to Reddit, and is described as an American biographical comedy-drama.

It’s based on the book The Antisocial Network by Princeton NJ’s Ben Mezrich, which detailed the true event known as the GameStop Short Squeeze.

Other cast members include Vincent D’Onofrio (Men in Black, Jurassic World), Sebastian Stan (the Marvel Cinematic Universe), and Anthony Ramos (Hamilton, In the Heights).
