Steve Soderbergh is set to produce and may even direct an untitled film in the works at Grey Matter Productions and Anonymous Content.
The project is set to deal with the famed ‘Panama Papers’ story from earlier this year and is based on Jake Bernstein’s upcoming book “The Secrecy World”. Bernstein was a senior reporter on the team that broke the story.
The account follows the leak of eleven million documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca which dealt with dubious global financial transactions around the world – effectively showing the ways powerful individuals and multinationals escaped scrutiny when it came to their wealth.
Lawrence Grey, Michael Sugar, and Scott Burns will also produce with Burns penning the script.
