Kurt Russell, Alexis Bledel to Star in New Crypto Movie

A new Hollywood thriller about cryptocurrency is being filmed in New York featuring Kurt Russell and Gilmore Girls star Alexis Bledel.

This time around, rather than trying to Escape from New York, Russell is struggling to survive in the city. He plays the father of a U.S. government agent (Beau Knapp) who is investigating fraud and corruption revolving around the art world and cryptocurrency. Alexis Bledel plays a mysterious art dealer with Luke Hemsworth of Westworld fame taking on the role of Knapp’s brother.

The plot follows Knapp as he becomes involved in a dangerous underworld involving Bledel’s character and a cryptocurrency enthusiast turned cyber-sleuth played by Jeremie Harris of the TV show Legion.

The indie film is directed by John Stalberg Jr, who was responsible for the 2010 film High School starring Adrien Brody. It was co-written by one of the writers who penned The Signal, another Beau Knapp film.

Producer Jordan Levine commented:

Cryptocurrency has captured the attention and imagination of consumers and entrepreneurs all over the world but has never been explored in film in such a nuanced and exciting way.”

 

Crypto is just one in a long line of films featuring cryptocurrency. The first, Dope, came out back in 2015 and the following year the Vietnamese crypto crime movie Bitcoin Heist was released. More recently, the British indie comedy KevCoin was launched earlier this month along with its very own cryptocurrency.

Confusingly, another film with the same name is also set for release this year, although not related to cryptocurrency.
