The Winklevoss twins will tell their BTC story on a silver screen. The movie “Bitcoin billionaires” will be made in cooperation with the former president of Warner Bros.
A film about Winklevoss
Stampede Ventures – a production company belonging to the former president of Warner Bros. Greg Silverman – collaborates with Cameron and Tyler Winkelvoss in the production of a film about the history of the brothers. This is based on the best-selling book.
We’re not talking about some niche production. The film will co-produce Jon Bergwho is known for superhero images like “Wonder Woman” and “Aquaman.”
The book “Bitcoin billionaires” was in turn written by the American author Ben Mezrich in 2019. Of course, it tells the fate of the twins who became billionaires thanks to BTC.
The characters of the Winklevoss brothers have already been transferred to the big screen. It’s about “The Social Network” by David Fintcher. He told the story of Mark Zuckerberg, who founded Facebook. Of course, the story of the twins famous today must have appeared, who originally commissioned him to design a social networking site, which later turned into “Facebook”.
In turn, in Mezrich’s book, we learn about the backstage of the legal battle of brothers with Marek Zuckerberg regarding Facebook. As we know today, the court partially admitted Winklevossom, resulting in $ 65 million.
However, the book also learns about their further fate and that they invested as much as USD 11 million in Bitcoin (BTC) in 2013 and thus became the first billionaires in the world of cryptocurrency.
“Rocky II meets Wall Street”
Silverman told the media that the idea of making a movie came to his mind right after he finished reading the book with his son, who received a copy from the twins during an internship at Winklevoss Capital.
– After reading, it became clear to us that the amazing story of Cameron and Tyler, combined with Ben’s masterful writing, is suitable for a one-of-a-kind film – he says.
What is the movie going to be like?
“It’s Rocky II on Wall Street, in a world full of unique and mesmerizing characters”
