Movie will be based on true hacker tale.

THR has word that Mark Wahlberg and his Leverage Management partner Stephen Levinson are to produce an untitled film about hacking for Universal Pictures.

Jonathan Herman is on board to provide the script which centres on “an anonymous, ruthless, highly skilled hacker who targets the student body of a large suburban high school.”

The film is loosely based on a January 2012 GQ article by David Kushner.
