Jordan Belfort, the inspiration of Martin Scorsese The wolf of Wall Street, is to host a fast-rotating Discovery + documentary about the soaring GameStop share price.
ITN Productions is directing the special film, which is titled GameStop: The Wall Street Hijacking and premieres in the UK on April 8 before an international rollout.
Narrated by Belfort, he will examine how a group of young risk-taking day traders used social media to stage a massive stock buyback for video game retailer GameStop.
“I have found some very creative ways to make money on Wall Street, but I have to say that personally I love that everyone now has the ability to organize and give to Wall Street players a race for their money is a real David versus Goliath story, ”he said.
GameStop: The Wall Street Hijacking was commissioned by Simon Downing and Victoria Noble for Discovery +. Jeremy Phillips is the executive producer of Discovery alongside Bruce Kennedy and Ian Russell for ITN Productions. Mark Radice is the producer.
