John Requa and Glenn Ficarra, the writing and directing team from “Crazy Stupid Love,” will re-team for this biopic based on the recent Wired Magazine article “John McAfee’s Last Stand.”
Warner Bros. Pictures is in final negotiations to acquire the project which the duo will write, direct and produce. A former NASA programmer, McAfee is the 66-year-old software guru who developed the first commercial anti-virus program.
McAfee has been evading authorities in Belize who sought to question him about the murder of American expatriate and neighbor Gregory Viant Faull.
At the peak of his success, McAfee was said to be worth $100 million. In the wake of the financial crisis, he was forced to sell almost everything he owned.
