Bernie Madoff’s life to be turned into filmApril 21st, 2009 - 4:54 pm ICT by ANI
New York, April 21 (ANI): Ponzi king Bernie Madoff’s life is set to become the subject of a docudrama.
Filmmaker Edmund Druilhet revealed he had begun work on Madoff: Made Off With America.
The movie would “span from Madoff’s childhood to his transformation into a current-day Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”, reports the New York Post.
And like Edmund’s last film, re-enactments with a cast of look-alikes are expected to feature in the project.
Madoff was convicted of operating a Ponzi scheme that has been called the largest investor fraud ever committed by a single person.
The 70-year-old last month pleaded guilty to an 11-count criminal complaint, admitting to defrauding thousands of investors and now faces spending the rest of his life in prison. (ANI)
