Crypto Crook’s Big Short – Will Sam Bankman-Fried Story Be Turned Into Blockbuster?

Crypto crook Sam Bankman-Fried astonishingly gets to hang out with the author of ‘The Big Short’ in spite of being on £207 million bail and now has not only Ghislaine Maxwell’s lawyer onside but also Prince Andrew’s judge to face also

Sam Bankman-Fried is one of those marauding millennials with an ability to simply not behave himself. Even after being arrested after allegedly defrauding investors by ‘losing’ £8.2 billion, deported from the Bahamas to the United States of America and managing to persuade a judge to let him out on a bail bond of £207 million, he’s continuing to seek attention.


Incapable of piping down and learning the art of silence, which might be wise given he’s upset a lot of very, very rich people by plundering their pockets, the aptly named Bankman-Fried has supposedly been having meetings with the author of the blockbuster The Big Short and getting tips about rap music and haircuts from the ex-con and ‘pharma thief’ Mark Shkreli.


Having also hired the very expensive lawyers the noxious nonce Ghislaine Maxwell owes a packet to in spite of himself having less than £80,000 left himself, this 30-year old is back living off the ‘bank of mum and dad’ and had author Michael Lewis round to his parents £3.3 million pad for “several hours on Friday,” according to Associated Press.


Lewis, who in addition to The Big Short penned Moneyball and The Blind Side – all of which were turned into Hollywood blockbusters – spoke of how he’d found a new “character” back in August with the Financial News.


At the time, he remarked:


“I really don’t want to reveal exactly what I’m writing about, but I found a character through whom I can write about. It weirdly links up Flash Boys, The Big Short and Liar’s Poker.”


“I guess it is possible it will be framed as a crypto book, but it won’t be a crypto book.”


‘It’ll be about this really unusual character. You’ll learn all about crypto and you’ll learn about what screwed up market structure in the United States and so on.”


Curiously, also linking Bankman-Fried to the mucky madam Maxwell, his case was reassigned to Judge Lewis A. Kaplan last week – the very same judge who handled the civil case between Virginia Roberts Giuffre and Prince Andrew back in January this year.


‘Randy Andy’ subsequently paid a sum of £12 million to Giuffre in spite of claiming he’d never had sexual relations or even met her at Maxwell’s Belgravia, London ‘bonk pad’ back in March 2001; the non-sweating, Pizza Express loving royal will be mocked again tomorrow in a Channel 4 satire titled Prince Andrew: The Musical. No doubt, if he tunes in, he’ll end up throwing his teddy bears at the telly box.

Prince Andrew The Musical
‘Prince Andrew: The Musical’ will undoubtedly be a “must watch” tomorrow, Thursday 29th December 2022, on Channel 4 at 9pm. It stars Kieran Hodgson as the Duke of York and an ensemble cast including Munya Chawawa as Prince Charles, Jenny Bede as Prince Andrew’s live-in ex-wife Sarah ‘Fergie’ Ferguson, Emma Sidi as journalist Emily Maitlis, and Harry Enfield and drag queen Baga Chipz as Prime Ministers Tony Blair and Maggie Thatcher respectively.
Prince Andrew teddy bears
The Duke of Edinburgh is known for his obsession with how his teddy bears are arranged. He may be even more so after the airing of a musical about him tomorrow; perhaps they’ll be the only thing left capable of bringing him comfort given his very own brother is currently doing all he can to send him to Siberia.
Ghislaine Maxwell Martin Shkreli
The world’s supposed biggest ever crypto crook may well find the experiences of Ghislaine Maxwell and Martin Shkreli helpful when and if he hits the clink. These equally arrogant once rich ratbags may be able to teach him a thing or two about how to survive alongside the poor, ordinary folk they once lauded it over.
‘The Big Short’ told the story of the years leading up to the 2007 housing market crash in America. It showed greed and avarice and illustrated such at its very worst. It is quite suitable a subject to remind not only Bankman-Fried, but also Maxwell and Shkreli of given they are personifications, all three of them, of such.
