“Avengers: Endgame” Directors Plans To Produce Mini-Series Based On FTX’s Collapse

Amazon has placed an order for a mini-series that will be directed by the same people who are responsible for Marvel’s “Avengers” franchise. The series will be based on the failure of the cryptocurrency exchange FTX.

According to Variety, Joe and Anthony Russo, directors of “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame,” as well as “The Gray Man” on Netflix, will produce the eight-episode series through their production company ABGO. The Russo brothers also directed “The Gray Man,” which was released on Netflix. In addition to serving as executive producers, the Russo brothers are now in discussions to direct episodes of the series.

David Weil, whose past credentials include writing for Amazon’s Hunters and Solos as well as writing for Apple TV+’s Invasion, will be the one to write the script for the series. It will be based on “insider reporting” from various journalists who have covered the FTX drama as well as its founder and former CEO, Sam Bankman-Fried. These journalists will remain nameless.

When talking about the collapse of FTX, which they called “one of the most audacious frauds ever pulled off,” the Russo brothers called Bankman-Fried “a very strange person with complicated and maybe even dangerous goals.”

According to Variety, “several Marvel stars” have reportedly had conversations about parts of the program. In addition to the Russos, Mike Larocca, Angela Russo-Otstot, Scott Nemes, and Natalie Laine Williams all work on the AGBO team and are executive producers for the series.

FTX was formerly considered to be one of the most promising companies in the cryptocurrency sector. The company gained widespread attention because of its high-profile sports sponsorships with teams such as the Miami Heat and its connections with celebrities like Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen. Its creator, Sam Bankman-Fried, who is just thirty years old, has been featured on the cover of prominent business journals such as Fortune and Forbes.

In the wake of undefined “revelations,” competing cryptocurrency exchange Binance started dumping its holdings of FTX’s FTT exchange tokens. This prompted investors to begin mass-withdrawing their cash from FTX, which caused investors to get concerned. A few days later, FTX filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

This week, it was reported in the industry publication The Hollywood Reporter that Apple is getting closer to making a deal to acquire the rights to the book written by Michael Lewis about FTX. According to a letter that was sent by Lewis’s agency, CAA, the author of “The Big Short,” “Moneyball,” and “Flash Boys” spent six months “travelling with and interviewing Sam Bankman-Fried” for the book. Lewis’s previous works include “The Big Short,” “Moneyball,” and “Flash Boys.”
