Real-life financial drama headed to the big screen

Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin (‘The Social Network,’ ‘The Newsroom,’ ‘West Wing’) is reportedly in negotiations to adapt Michael Lewis’ best-selling ‘Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt’ for Sony Pictures.

Published in March, the non-fiction book deals with “the practice of high-frequency trading on Wall Street and how it became a way to rig the system.”

Scott Rudin and Eli Bush are on board to produce.
