Belize has been on the international spotlight because of the infamous John McAfee and it seems that once more Belize will be in the lime light as McAfee’s escape from the country will be turned to a movie. The story of eccentric 67-year-old antivirus firm founder John McAfee's escape from Belize, to Guatemala, to Miami, is set to hit the big screen.
John Requa and Glenn Ficarr will reportedly adapt the story, as well as direct and produce the film. The pair previously directed the 2011 Warner Bros. comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love, which earned $143 million worldwide. Both Wired publisher Conde Nast Entertainment and Davis will serve as movie co-producers.
Last month, McAfee himself sold the rights to his life story to Montreal-based Impact Future Media. But the Warner Bros. movie deal would appear to be a separate endeavor, and might not even involve McAfee. Davis didn't immediately respond to an emailed request for comment about whether McAfee is involved in the Last Stand production.
Regardless, Requa and Ficarr would seem to be an ideal choice for relaying McAfee's madcap tale, as the pair previously wrote Bad Santa, as well as wrote and directed I Love You Phillip Morris.
