Check out the first official trailer of The Wizard of Lies, the upcoming HBO drama movie directed by Barry Levinson based on a script by Sam Levinson, John Burnham Schwartz and Samuel Baum and starring Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Alessandro Nivola, Nathan Darrow, Kristen Connolly, Lily Rabe, and Hank Azaria:
THE WIZARD OF LIES
“In 2008, stockbroker, investment advisor and financier Bernie Madoff made headlines around the world when he was arrested for perpetrating perhaps the largest financial fraud in U.S. history.
Debuting in May, HBO Films’ THE WIZARD OF LIES examines Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme – his deception, lies and cover-up, all as the financier’s wife and sons are catapulted into a harsh and unrelenting spotlight.
Robert De Niro (Oscar® winner for “Raging Bull” and “The Godfather II”) comes to HBO for the first time in the role of family patriarch Bernie Madoff. Also on HBO for the first time, Michelle Pfeiffer (Golden Globe winner for “The Fabulous Baker Boys”) stars as Ruth Madoff, Bernie’s longtime spouse and unwitting partner during the events that would lead to financial ruin for countless people and institutions, as well as his and his family’s destruction.”
Do you feel any pity for Bernie Maddoff? Or do you feel the old geezer is just a filthy profiteering scumbag?
The release date of The Wizard of Lies is set to sometime in May 2017 on HBO.
