Andrew Mogel & Jarrad Paul Chart Vegas Film

"The D Train" directors Andrew Mogel and Jarrad Paul are set to helm a film adaptation of the Wired magazine article "Finding a Vegas Poker Bug Made These Guys Rich" says Variety.

Written by Kevin Poulsen, the story follows two hackers who found a glitch in video poker machines that allowed them to net 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 also produce the film.

Jonah Hill will executive produce.
