Cross posting from the news section.  Figured it's worth a thread in here as well Smiley

Quote
20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment have set best-selling author Dennis Lehane to script Silk Road, a fact-based tale taken from an article that Joshua Davis is writing for the Epic website, which is devoted to film-friendly longform journalism. It’s the true story of a young kid who was arrested for putting out a hit on the clients of the Silk Road, the illegal online bazaar he created where one could buy illegal goods including drugs or services like contract killings. Lehane wrote Shutter Island, Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone and Live By Night, which is Ben Affleck’s next directing effort at Warner Bros. Lehane also scripted Animal Rescue, the Chernin-produced Michael R. Roskam-directed drama for Fox Searchlight that stars Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and James Gandolfini.

Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping will produce along with Davis and Joshuah Bearman. Davis and Bearman are journalists who partnered in Epic, the company that formed a first-look Fox deal to produce films based on magazine articles hatched by them and other journalists. Bearman wrote the article that served as the jumping off point for Best Picture Oscar winner Argo.

There was a stampede for the movie rights to this story, and Chernin’s Kerry Foster was integral in making this happen. Amy Schiffman from Intellectual Property Group and attorney Jason Hendler of Hanson Jacobson brokered the deal for Lehane. This is an exciting form of movie making because the story is still developing, as are some of the other movie projects set up by those journos. It also gives Fox a high-profile project after making that deal to try and do things outside the box, and getting A-level talent to develop it. Bearman is repped by UTA, David by Resolution and both are managed by Circle Of Confusion’s Rick Jacobs.

Good luck there.  The official narrative will be what "everybody" remembers.

Will be a boring story. A guy who never spends any coins who sits in front of a laptop at the library making stupid decisions all day like using CIs and LE to order hits.

Yea... couldn't buy contract killings on SR, though I'm sure it'll be portrayed that way.

It won't get the story "straight" no matter what.  Not because of any government conspiracy or whatever, but rather just because real life is reaaaaaaaaaaaally boring compared to movies.  I'm sorry kids, but that's just the way it is.

Hollywood isn't about getting the story right its about entertainment.

Sad, but true.

It'll be entertaining only if they come to BitcoinTalk for inspiration. Besides myself, Bruce, Matthew, Atlas, Dank, Finn, to name a few, come to mind. And that's before you hit any mining concerns.

Is this for real? I remember seeing jokes about this. I can't imagine this would make for the most interesting move, but hey, maybe I'm wrong. I'm sure it will create a somewhat distorted picture.

"services like contract killingsRoll Eyes

Had the potential to be a decent film but I'm pretty sure this will be an FBI funded propaganda piece like Reefer Madness:

a movie about a guy that goes to a cybercafe, logs in checks his private messages and bug reports for a website... well thats 40 minutes of a movie wasted.

the movie then shows him in a chatroom typing away having an arguement and he flips open his tor browser to hire a hitman. thats the 10 minute build up to the action part of the movie.

and the last 40 minutes of a 90 minute movie is him sitting at home and the cops knocking at his door, getting arrested,,,

... definetly not a die hard action movie.. and less of a storyline then that facebook movie...

id think they may make a documentary channel  episode about it one day, but not worthy of going to the cinema for

I don't think anybody is going to watch a movie about some computer nerd who sets up a website, then gets arrested.
