I'm interested in directors to be recommended for a financial thriller based on ~ currents events . The event in question is the rise and fall of the Cryptocurrency Guru , Samuel Bankman-Fried , and his close confidate and financial advisor , Caroline Allison , about their eventual disagreements and ensuing war , which led to the collapse of their trillion dollar empire . I thought this would be a great vehicle for Michael Cera and Anna Kendrick . I don't know a lot about current directors so if you recommend one , please explain what he's done and what he would do with the production ?
David Fincher did The Social Network a capable and engrossing movie which was somewhat bland . I see recently he was Executive Producer of House of Cards and the extreme Love, Death & Robots . I thought of Edgar Wright , but I don't think it's his thing or he would be interested in this . (and there is a limited but very juicy role in the possible crypto thriller for Tom Hanks as the interim Administrator J.Ray who is brought in to assess the collapse and stabilise the company)
Here is a list of similar movies all that were well made , engrossing and enjoyable - Jobs - informative fun version that got maybe too loose and silly in it's latter part Steve Jobs - very well done serious drama by Danny Boyle Truth - story of national political reporter , Dan Rather , firing and resignation The Post - story of The Washington Post's struggle to survive by Steven Spielberg The Report - extremely complex version of The Starr Report
