Buys VW scandal film rights

13 Oct, 2015

DiCaprio’s production company Appian Way and Paramount Pictures buy the film rights to an as-yet-unwritten book about the VW scandal, where the company admitted that 11 million of its diesel vehicles worldwide are fitted with software that beat emission tests. The book will be written by Ewing, a New York Times journalist, and it will reportedly explore the “more, better, faster” ethos and how it played into the scandal. It is not known whether DiCaprio will star in the film.
