One way to determine cryptocurrency’s mainstream adoption is when Hollywood starts taking an interest in the industry. In what will come as happy news to movie-goers, a trailer of a movie named CRYPTO starring Kurt Russell and Luke Hemsworth, is now live. The trailer portrays the story of an outcast Wall Street banker who manages to connect a rural art gallery to a global conspiracy involving the Russian mafia.
The plot which was revealed last year by entertainment news portal, The Hollywood Reporter, will be on a young anti-money laundering agent (Knapp) tasked with investigating a tangled web of corruption and fraud in his remote New York hometown, where his father (Russell) and brother (Hemsworth) are struggling to maintain their family farm in a changing economic landscape. The agent quickly finds himself enmeshed in a dangerous underworld populated by a mysterious art dealer (Bledel), a crypto-currency enthusiast turned cyber-sleuth (Harris) and a corrupt accountant doing the bidding of ruthless clients (Kartheiser).
According to the movie’s IMDB page, CRYPTO is produced by Yale Productions, BondIt Media Capital, and Dynasty Pictures, and directed by John Stalberg Jr. The film was written by Carlyle Eubank and David Frigerio, and is based on an original story by Jeffrey Ingber, news portal Cryptocoinspy reported.
The movie will be aired on April 12 this year, and will also be made available through certain on-demand platforms such as Atomic Kitten, as evidenced by the end of the trailer.
Last year, the movie’s director Stalberg had said, “I am overjoyed to be working with such an incredible cast to bring this timely, thrilling story to life. Beau is incredibly talented, and seeing him bring this character to life opposite talent like Alexis, Kurt, Luke, Jeremie and Vincent has been a dream come true.”
