Ever since John McAfee was first implicated for the murder of his neighbor Gregory Faull in the central American country of Belize, those reporting on his story (and those reading about it) have said that it sounded more like the plot of a fictional movie than real life.
Rumors of corrupt governments requesting bribes and giving new identities to Hezbollah terrorists, fraud, meth labs, assassinated doggies, wacky disguises, allegedly faked heart attacks, a “Charlie’s Angels” group of girls assisting him on the run and outrageous blog posts from the man that detailed his adventures are just some of the elements of what have been John McAfee’s life for the last few months!
It seems like Hollywood agrees with us as the reports emerged that Warner Brothers have purchased the rights to a Wired article entitled ‘John McAfee: The Last Stand’ which gives a detailed account of the anti-virus mogul’s exploits.
This doesn’t mean they are definitely going to make the movie, but it means they might!
I’m imagining some sort of strange hybrid between the Hunter S. Thompson-inspired The Rum Diary and the Bourne movies, but who knows what angle the producers will decide to take when tackling McAfee’s insane adventures and teleporting them onto the big screen. For all intents and purposes, I think it could also make a pretty funny comedy, something like – ‘National Lampoon Goes On The Run’ perhaps?
