Robert De Niro is reportedly in talks to star in the HBO remake of Diane Henrique’s non-fiction book The Wizard Of Lies: Bernie Madoff And The Death Of Trust.

The book based on the life of Bernie Madoff debuted at No. 10 this weekend on The New York Times bestseller list.

We kind of do see a resemblance.

But now it seems it all comes down to how much $$$ they can offer him.

    Robert De Niro should take the multi-millions he's going to get, then forward every penny to Madoff's victims.

    Love De Niro…I think that would be awesome!

    Robert De Niro is always the right choice. He could play Evita and be the right choice.

    who wants to see A STORY ABOUT MADOFF? We do not know where this THEIF spent or SENT BILLIONS, HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS. And I have some so so feelings here. A trustee for the Victims is suing the owners of the NY Mets-Fred Wilpon and Saul Katz, other investors with Madoff, that they, wilpon and katz should have known that the returns they were receiving from their investments were illegal and they need to RETURN EVERYTHING AND BEYOND. Meaning, they have to selll their share in the mets (trustee is going after $1 billion) So, The Victims did not know this was a PONZI scheme, had no way of knowing it, but the ones that 'made' money did or should have and need to give back ALL THEIR MONEY AND MORE. ??????? Why can't they find the $168 billion that is UNACCOUNTED FOR? NOT LIKE MADOFF LOST IT IN THE SOFA

    Maidoff can't talk about the bigger players that are involved in his scandal. They will kill him if he did. One of the big players involved is 'Banco Santander', a super bank in Spain. This bank is owned by the 'Inter-Alpha Group' which is owned and controlled by Jacob Rothschild of London. (F.Y.I.)

    De Niro would be great with this part. I would love to see this happen!



  9. 9

    Chances are pretty good that he will play the part. His company is producing it after all!

    All DeNiro has to do here is act like a sociopath with no conscience.

    Re: caravaggio the terrible – All they had to do was let them fail.
    The regulations were removed, and then the responsible checks and balances that would have self corrected the financial situation were ignored.

    Re: @v@ – That would be correct! BUT. The plan was and still is to take down the US dollar and make the majority of America too poor to fight back, bring them to their knees and force them to accept world government. Glass-Steagall was removed by summers, rubin, greenspan in 1999 to allow the planned derivatives ball to begin its destruction > 9-11 cover > Hank Paulson 2008 bailout #1. They still can RE-BACK the dollar with gold, but it would be a 'new dollar', and they could still ask for a 1 for 3 exchange like they did in Argentina in 2003, Weimar Republic of Germany, Zimbabuwae, etc. That would grab close 2/3 of anyones assets in one swift stroke, given that the old dollar would not have the purchasing power it used to have. There is a site called 'new money dot gov' and you can see all the US currency the FED is planning to print.

    Re: @v@ – You will also see not too far in the distant future, a rish to gold and silver assets which may include other metals. But keep in mind, only about 15%-20% of Americans can actually transfer the value of their wealth into metals markets, because there is just not enough to go around. You were warned! Bloodbath coming…

    Re: caravaggio the terrible – Right now I don't see that happening. Gov't may be broke, but private business looks to be getting stronger on paper. Diversify. Gov't and financial institutions have to become fiscally responsible or other scenarios could unfold.

    Re: @v@ – Absolutely impossible. The debt they have create dis unpayable and most will be defaulted upon. The bailouts only allow us to go sideways to buy time for 1-2 years per bailout. QE3 is 'bailout #4' and if they do NOT do it….then we collapse. What they want is a large scale war to begin (Pakistan/Saudi/Iran/Libya/Syria/Yemen) so then they can blame the collapse of the economy, ON the war. It is the same playbook as the last depression in which both world wars were created by the bankers who ran the FED and STILL run the FED. Incidentally all markets are rigged and they are able for the time being to knock down gold and silver prices as well as gold and silver shares (mining stocks).
