The Rise and Fall of FTX Is Being Adapted Into Film "Multiple" Times in the Near Future
According to a number of different reports, the novelist and financial journalist Michael Lewis is currently working on a book that will be about the FTX scandal. It is said that prior to the collapse of the exchange, Lewis spent a number of months working alongside the previous CEO of the FTX, Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF).
The Hollywood Reporter states that "multiple projects" are currently being developed about "the rise and fall of the crypto exchange." Lewis is also well-known for his work as a writer of financial thrillers. He is the author of several well-known stories, including "Moneyball," "The Big Short," and "Flash Boys."
According to a report by Mia Galuppo of The Hollywood Reporter, "sources peg the deal with Apple in the mid-seven-figure range." This information suggests that Apple has a good chance of acquiring the rights to Lewis's story about FTX.
In addition, according to Galuppo, the director Graham Moore is currently working on an adaptation of the FTX story, and the film studio XTR is currently in the Bahamas filming a nonfiction documentary about FTX and SBF. Additionally, it was revealed by the technology publication The Information that Vice Media is currently working on a documentary about the FTX debacle.
Ivan Mehta, a reporter for Techcrunch, detailed on November 24 that Amazon is collaborating with the Russo Brothers, who are well-known for their work on Marvel films, on the production of a television series. The Russo brothers discussed the upcoming television film series and stated that the plot will involve a significant amount of each and every element.
"This is one of the most audacious cons that has ever been pulled off. According to what the Russo brothers told Techcrunch, "It crosses many sectors, including celebrity, politics, academia, technology, criminality, sex, drugs, and the future of modern finance." "At the heart of it all, there is a figure shrouded in extreme secrecy, with motives that are both convoluted and potentially lethal. We are interested in knowing the reason why."
