  • Milos Forman is in talks to direct "Ponzi's Scheme", a biopic about Charles Ponzi, the creator of the eponymous financial scam.

  • Christopher Weekes has signed on to write the screenplay, based on Mitchell Zuckoff's 2006 book "Ponzi's Scheme: The True Story of a Financial Legend".

  • The film will tell the true tale of Charles Ponzi, the Italian immigrant who came
    to America in the 1920s, penniless and in search of the American Dream. What began
    as an earnest business venture to provide for the love of his life, blossomed
    into the world's most famous scam that today still bears his name.
