Russo Brothers Plan “Mastermind” TV Series

“Captain America: Civil War” directors Joe and Anthony Russo and their Getaway Productions label have teamed with Skybound Entertainment to pre-emptively acquire rights for “The Mastermind”.

Based on a new investigative series of articles from digital publication The Atavist Magazine and writer Evan Ratliff, the plan is to develop the property for television with style similar to the popular “Making of a Murderer” with slowly unfolding written installments.

The story follows the illicit exploits of Paul Le Roux, a brilliant programmer and a vicious cartel boss who became a prized government asset. Ratliff is also writing a book based on Le Roux and the hunt to catch him.
