Hedge funds are hot in Hollywood. On the heels of another hedge-fund-oriented flick, the forthcoming Arbitrage, Warner Bros. is adding to the canon.

Actor Will Ferrell is set to star in Swear to God, a comedy in which Ferrell will portray "a narcissistic hedge fund manager who thinks he has seen God"—as opposed to the many managers who think they are God—according to Deadline.com.

The film is slated for release in 2013, according to IMDB.com.
