Ethereum will have its own movie. The production company of the acclaimed director of works such as “Alien”, “Gladiator” y “The Fall of the Black Falcon”, Ridley Scott, joined the project to bring the story behind this cryptocurrency to the big screen.
The film will be an adaptation of the book “La máquina Infinita”, written by journalist Camila Russo,who will also be part of the production team. Russo herself confirmed the arrival of production company Scott Free Productions via her Twitter account on Thursday, April 21.
The feature film will follow the life of Vitalik Buterin, co-creator of Ethereum, and show how at a young age he managed to bring together a group of engineers and investors to create a “computer on the internet”. The film will be directed by Shyam Madiraju, according to The Defiant.
If the project comes to fruition, it would become the first major non-documentary film adaptation in the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency ecosystem.
The cast is yet to be defined, as at the time of writing it is still unknown who will be in charge of playing Vitalik Buterin.
Charles Hoskinson, part of the original Ethereum creator group and founder of Cardano, has asked who will play his role. It should be recalled that Hoskinson was separated from the Ethereum project by Buterin himself in 2014, following a dispute of interests.
To celebrate the announcement of the production of this new movie, Russo released a collection of NFT under the name The Infinite Machine Movie Collection, consisting of more than 10,499 unique pieces, now available for sale on the OpenSea platform.
Scott Free Productions was founded in 1980 by brothers Tony and Ridley Scott. Among its catalog are Oscar-winning films such as “Blade Runner 2049”, “Gladiator”, “Alien”, “The Fall of the Black Falcon”, and a roster of more than 90 feature films.
