One of the most renowned film directors of all time, Ridley Scott, known for 1979’s Alien, House of Gucci, Blade Runner, and more, will produce a movie about cryptocurrency.
The movie title was announced as The Infinite Machine and will detail the story of how the Ethereum network was founded.
The film will be based on Camila Russo’s book “The Infinite Machine,” which tells how Vitalik Buterin came up with the idea for Ethereum and how he developed the network.
The Infinite Machine will be directed by Shyam Madiraju, with Ridley Scott, Tom Moran, Vera Meyer, and Alejandro Miranda as the producers. Camila Russo, the cryptocurrency journalist who originally wrote the book, said she couldn’t imagine a better team to create this movie.
“It’s incredibly exciting to have Ridley Scott and the crew at Scott Free produce the movie of “The Infinite Machine” alongside us. I can’t imagine a better team to turn the riveting story about the people behind the most revolutionary technology since the internet into a feature film that will capture the hearts of our generation.”
