As noted by Deadline, the streaming service is apparently in talks with screenwriter Mark Boal to develop a movie based on the Reddit vs. Wall Street GameStop saga, with Noah reportedly playing “a major role” in the upcoming project. Journalist, professor, and activist Scott Galloway is also reportedly attached to the project as a consultant.
Deadline shares that Netflix declined to comment about the possibility of a movie, but sources said “the intention is to use the GameStop episode as a specific way to shine a light on the phenomenon of how social media has leveled the playing field and allowed the masses to challenge status quo gatekeepers, for good and bad.” Deadline mentions that the film would follow in the footsteps of similar movies like The Big Short, and that several “rival projects” are also potentially in development.
For a primer about what’s going on between Wall Street, Reddit, GameStop, and AMC, Teen Vogue pulled together an analytic overview of the situation and what could potentially happen as a result. Will we see Noah as an enterprising Redditor ready to topple Wall Street, or will he be on the other side? We’ll have to wait and see, as no concrete details have yet been released.
