After the collapse of FTX, the story sounds like it came out of a financial thriller based on fictional and fictional characters. However, the story and the people behind it are very real and today’s streaming giants such as Amazon, Apple and Netflix are vying for the rights to tell the FTX story.
“Multiple” film adaptations of The Rise and Fall of FTX are coming
Multiple reports have revealed that novelist and financial journalist, Michael Lewis, is working on a book about the FTX saga. Lewis reportedly spent several months with former FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) prior to the stock market collapse.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “multiple projects [are] works on the rise and fall of crypto exchanges.” Lewis is also known for creating financial thrillers as he wrote popular stories such as “Moneyball”, “The Big Short” and “Flash Boys”.
Mia Galuppo of The Hollywood Reporter indicates that Apple could win the rights to Lewis’ story about FTX, as Galuppo reports that “sources with Apple are doing business in the mid-seven digits.”
Galuppo also says that filmmaker Graham Moore is working on an adaptation of the FTX story and that film studio XTR is already filming a non-fiction documentary about FTX and the SBF in the Bahamas. Tech publication The Information also revealed that Vice Media is working on a documentary about the FTX fiasco.
TechCrunch reporter Evan Mehta reported on Nov. 24 that Amazon is working on a television series starring the Russo Brothers, who are Marvel filmmakers. The Russos talked about the upcoming television movie series and said there’s a lot going into the story.
“This is one of the most brutal frauds ever committed. It cuts across many areas — celebrity, politics, education, technology, crime, sex, drugs and the future of modern finance,” Ross told TechCrunch. At the center is an extremely mysterious figure with complex and potentially dangerous motivations. We want to understand why.
