According to the Variety report, Cameron Winklevoss and Tyler Winklevoss are adopting the 2019 book Bitcoin Billionaires by Ben Mezrich. Newport Beach Film Festival announces its opener, and Mutiny Pictures becomes a distributor of the movie. Jon Berg will also co-produce the film with Silverman and the twins, who became famous in Mezrich’s bestseller, “The Accidental Billionaires,” the basis for the movie The Social Network, directed by David Fincher and won several academy awards. Quentin Tarantino had recently picked The Social Network as the best movie of the last decade.
Bitcoin Billionaire is the tale of Winklevoss twins’ efforts to finance BitInstant.
In Bitcoin Billionaires, Mezrich details the twins’ efforts to finance the Bitcoin payment processor BitInstant. The same writer also wrote “Bringing Down The House,” which was adapted into a feature film “21.” Stampede is backed by former Facebook CFO and San Francisco 49ers co-owner Gideon Yu. Deadline first reported the news. Greg Silverman told the press that this is Rocky II meets Wall Street in a world filled with unique and mesmerizing characters. This is going to make an incredible film, he noted.
The second phase of the Winklevoss twins journey
With the Winklvi producing the film and Ben Mezrich’s writing, the film can expose bitcoin and cryptocurrency to the mainstream. The brothers noted that Mezrich had portrayed the ‘colorful, frontier days of the crypto revolution’ in the book, and they are excited to share their early years. Bitcoin has been making appearances in the mainstream media for quite a while, but a feature film about the journey of two famous crypto leaders could have some positive impact on the industry. Bitcoin Billionaires will portray the next phase of the twin’s lives. It will also introduce the success of a decentralized world, and how the twins contributed to and became billionaires from it.
