The plot has been described as a subversive, scathing look at a self-loathing management consultant from a top-tier firm. Bell will star alongside Don Cheadle (Iron Man 2) in the project. Cheadle will star as Marty, a highly successful, cutthroat consultant who is never above using any means (or anyone) necessary to get his clients the information they want. Bell will play Jeannie Van Der Hooven, a razor-sharp, Ivy-League graduate who works at Marty’s firm.
