Hollywood jumps on the cryptocurrency bandwagon with new movie thriller involving money laundering and digital currencies

While Bitcoin has been referenced numerous times in television shows over the past few years, there have been very few motion pictures dedicated to the use of cryptocurrencies.  But this appears to be changing as Kurt Russel has agreed to star in an Indie film which is being titled, Crypto.

The film is promoting itself as a thriller involving money laundering, cryptocurrencies, fraud and corruption, and follows in the footsteps of last year's Asian made cryptocurrency based film Bitcoin Heist.

Hollywood star Kurt Russell is one of a number of performers set to star in an upcoming indie film about cryptocurrencies. 
The film, entitled Crypto, will feature Russell as well as Alexis Bledel, Jeremie Harris and Luke Hemsworth, among others. The Hollywood Reporter notes that the film focuses on a young anti-money laundering agent, played by Beau Knapp, who returns to his hometown in New York to investigate a case of corruption and fraud. Russell is playing the father of Knapp's character, according to press materials. 
Crypto's producers are calling it "a thriller in the vein of The Firm and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" – but with a decidedly cryptocurrency-focused twist. The film was written by Carlyle Eubank and David Frigerio. – Coin Desk
