Recently, a news has come from the Hollywood section is that a film is being made on Cryptocurrency. The film called Crypto, revolves around a federal agent who returns to his hometown New York. He comes to investigate a case of fraud and corruption. The agent finds himself surrounded in an underworld populated with dealers. In it is a mysterious dealer, who was a crypto-currency enthusiast turned into a cyber-sleuth. Other than the dealers is their corrupt accountant who does the bidding for the clients. The storyline was reported by The Hollywood Reporter earlier.
About The Movie
The film Crypto will feature Kurt Russell as one of the major stars in the movie. Other than him, Alexis Bledel, Jeremie Harris, and Luke Hemsworth are also present in the movie. The agent role is played by Beau Knapp and Kurt will feature as his father in the movie.
The producers of the film are quite excited about the movie. They have compared the movie to that of The Firm and The Girl with Dragon Tattoo with a twist. The film is focused on cryptocurrency and written by Carlyle Eubank and David Frigerio. However, if we speak honestly, comparing the film with famous thriller sounds a bit ambitious. On the descriptions given by the producers, the film sounds a little dreadful.
Jordan Yale, one of the co-producers said that “Cryptocurrency has captured the market. People are excited about them and it has caught the attention of a lot many. A film based on it will be exciting for the people and will be worth a watch”.
Crypto is the largest project in the Hollywood industry however it is not the first. The first ever film was ‘mile-a-minute’ which was a thriller film. It was based on Bitcoin produced by a Vietnamese team and received 20% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. But it was partly a success so we can hope that Crypto will also achieve the success in this field.
For people who are waiting for a cryptocurrency movie to come, there are some hopes. Last year, Coen brothers announced that they were working on a project. The film is based on Silk Road, the now-defunct dark market which used Bitcoin as their central currency.
The film is still being shot and the release date is not yet announced. The film may seem interesting to some people and does have a chance to be successful in the industry. We will have to wait and watch till the film comes in theatres.
