The Coen brothers, the visionary filmmakers behind modern classics like Fargo, No Country for Old Men, and The Big Lebowski, have signed on to write the screenplay for a Fox movie tentatively called Dark Web, Engadget reports. The movie is reportedly based on Wired’s editorial series, which detailed Ulbricht’s rise and sudden fall at the helm of the notorious black market—and all of the crazy plot twists in-between: attempted murder-for-hire hits, dirty undercover operations, and millions of dollars in illicit goods being dealt.
Ulbricht, who operated Silk Road under the alias Dread Pirate Roberts and carried himself as a Libertarian revolutionary, is currently serving two live sentences in New York City’s Metropolitan Correctional Center.
There’s no word yet on whether the Coen brothers will direct Dark Web, but here’s hoping.
