The movie will centre on McAfee's notorious time in Belize
Hollywood icon Johnny Depp is set to play tech industry legend John McAfee in an upcoming biopic based on his time hiding out in Belize, reports indicate.
According to Deadline, the Pirates Of The Caribbean Star will play McAfee "as he takes a... magazine writer on a darkly comic Apocalypse Now-like tour at his Belize compound, a trip filled with paranoia, machine guns, sex and murder".
Details are sketchy at present, but the film - that allegedly has the working title 'King Of The Jungle' - will apparently be based on the notorious episode in which the tech mogul and one-time presidential candidate went on the run from Belizean police in an unbelievable incident involving meth labs, alleged police frame-ups and the murder of McAfee's neighbor.
The creative team behind the film have considerable experience producing biopics, and their previous work suggests they will not shy away from the more controversial aspects of the John McAfee legend.Click here
