RE: Bitcoin Billionaires Book To Be Made Into Big Screen Film
The Winklevoss twins are now helping produce a big-screen film adaptation of the book Bitcoin Billionaires
Winklevoss Twins to Help Produce ‘Bitcoin Billionaires’ Book for Film
“As reported by Deadline on Monday, the twins will work with Stampede Ventures to turn ‘Bitcoin Billionaires’ by Ben Mezrich into a movie. Stampede is an entity created by Greg Silverman, formerly Warner Bros.’ president of production, to fund blockbuster entertainment.
‘Bitcoin Billionaires’ is a non-fiction book that tells the tale of how, amid their struggles after their famous court battle with Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook, the Winklevoss brothers happened across cryptocurrency and decided to make a big bet on the youthful technology.
Cameron and Tyler previously worked with Mezrich on ‘The Accidental Billionaires,’ the book that became the Oscar-winning film ‘The Social Network.’
Silverman told Deadline that after reading ‘Bitcoin Billionaires,’ it was evident ‘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 further described the upcoming movie as ‘Rocky II’ meets Wall Street.’”
