The Volkswagen AG scandal over diesel emission tests is headed for Hollywood.
U.S. movie studio Paramount Picture and actor Leonardo DiCaprio‘s production company have acquired movie rights to a book proposal by New York Times journalist Jack Ewing about the clean diesel scandal, the biggest crisis in Volkswagen‘s (VOWG_p.DE) 78-year history, Paramount and New York literary agency Marly Rusoff and Associates said on Monday.
Publishing rights for the as-yet-untitled book sold earlier this month for six figures to the Norton publishing house, Marly Rusoff said. The book is expected to investigate how a “more, better, faster” ethos fueled one of the greatest frauds in corporate history.
The scandal has wiped more than a third off the German company’s share price, forced out its long-time CEO and prompted investigations around the world.
No stars or directors are attached to the movie at this stage.
