Matt Damon will be in front of the camera of Ben Affleck to tell in film a true hallucinating story.

The world is definitely going too fast. If you have not heard of the case, let us first remember that only a few days ago The Daily Beast published a long article about Jerome Jacobson. The latter is a former US policeman arrested by the FBI after rigging for 12 years the game of McDonald’s Monopoly through his position as security officer and with the help of many accomplices (leaders of strip club, drug traffickers , mobsters, mediums …) .Il would thus have garnered the sum of 24 million dollars. Today, a film based on this case and this article is already on the way.

A true story perfect for Hollywood

Indeed, Deadline reports that in a bitter and fast bidding battle, 20th Century Fox would have won the adaptation rights in front of Netflix, Warner Bros. or else Universal. The media also reveals that Ben Affleck ( Argo ) would be the realization of this true story, with Matt Damon ( The Martian ) in the lead role. A meeting that had not been held since 1997 with Will Hunting . Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese from Deadpool will be on the screenplay.
