New Movie To Tell Winklevoss Bros’ Crypto Story
It is about time someone does a movie about cryptocurrencies. We’ve had movies telling the story of social media; now it seems, cryptocurrency will soon get its 2 minutes of fame thanks to an idea birthed by Stampede Ventures — a production company owned by ex-Warner Bros. president Greg Silverman.
The production company has partnered with Cameron and Tyler Winkelvoss to produce a movie centered on the Winklevoss Brothers. The movie will take stock from the story about the brothers in the best-selling book, Bitcoin Billionaires.
According to insider reports, Silverman will co-produce the movie with John Berg (known for working on Aquaman, and Wonder Woman).
The book Bitcoin Billionaires was written by Ben Mezrich in 2019 after the Winklevoss brothers emerged as the first crypto billionaires.
The Winklevoss Story
Much wasn’t known about the Winklevoss brothers until Mezrich wrote about them in his best-selling book, “The Accidental Billionaire.” The book served as an inspiration for the critically acclaimed film The Social Network.
In the book, Mezrich gave an insight into the brothers’ legal battle with Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook over rights to the social media platform. They claimed the social media platform was their original idea. After the court ruling, the brothers were paid $65 million as settlement for their claims.
The book Bitcoin Billionaires continues the brothers’ story from winning the lawsuit in 2011 to investing $11 million in Bitcoin in 2013, thus becoming the world’s first crypto billionaires back in 2017.
Rocky And Wall Street Combo
Silverman said the idea of creating the film was birthed after he finished the book.
“Upon finishing it, it was clear to both of us that Cameron and Tyler’s remarkable redemption story, coupled with Ben’s masterful writing, would lend itself to a one of a kind movie,” he said. “This is Rocky II meets Wall Street in a world filled with unique and mesmerizing characters,” Silverman added.
