Johnny Depp to Play Cyber Security Icon and Accused Murderer John McAfee

Is John McAfee’s life so interesting that he deserves a movie? Well, yeah. Jack Sparrow himself will be playing the role of the famed anti-virus company founder, who is additionally known for everything from seeking office of the President of the United States to being a "person of interest" in connection with the murder of an American expatriate.

CAA will soon take to the town King of the Jungle, with new client Johnny Depp attached to play computer virus magnate-turned-accused murderer John McAfee as he takes a Wired magazine writer on a darkly comic Apocalypse Now-like tour at his Belize compound, a trip filled with paranoia, machine guns, sex and murder. Glenn Ficarra & John Requa will direct a script by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (the pic was originally developed at Warner Bros).
