Oscar-winner Kate Winslet to star in 'Fake!' — a movie about crypto Ponzi scheme OneCoin

Kate Winslet, the Titanic actress and an Oscar winner, is set to star in and produce "Fake!" — a movie about cryptocurrency Ponzi scheme OneCoin.

Deadline reported the news on Friday, saying that the movie will be written and directed by Scott Z. Burns, who has worked on films such as The Report, a political thriller, and Contagion, a pandemic movie that also starred Winslet.

Fake! is based on the forthcoming book of the same name by Douglas Thompson and Jen McAdam, a victim of the OneCoin scheme. McAdam will executive produce the film.
