Ridley Scott’s production company – Scott Free Productions – is slated to work on an adaption of The Infinite Machine – the best-selling book telling the story of Ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin, written by the cryptocurrency journalist Camila Russo.
The film itself will be written and directed by Shyam Midiraju, with Scott Free’s Tom Moran and Vera Meyer, producing alongside Alejandro Miranda of Versus Entertainment.
Russo herself has been clearly excited about Scott Free’s involvement, and that’s not surprising. With a pedigree of films like Gladiator and Kingdom of Heaven, the company lends itself to the telling of stories from broad scope, to deeper individual and philosophical stories. Making them the ideal producer.
While details are limited for the moment, the story of Ethereum begins with Vitalik Buterin, a gifted 19-year-old autodidact who saw the promise of blockchain when the technology was in its earliest stages. He convinced a crack group of coders to join him in his quest to make a super-charged, global computer.
