Jordan Belfort, who inspired Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf Of Wall Street, is to release a Discovery + documentary about the rise in GameStop’s stock price.
ITN Productions is shooting the specialty film entitled GameStop: The Wall Street Hijack and premiering on April 8 in the UK ahead of an international rollout.
Narrated by Belfort, he will investigate how a group of young, risky day traders used social media to organize a massive stock purchase for video game retailer GameStop.
“I’ve found some very creative ways to make money on Wall Street, but personally I have to say that I love the fact that now everyone has the opportunity to organize the Wall Street players and give them a run for them To give money. It’s a real David versus Goliath story, ”he said.
GameStop: The Wall Street Hijack was commissioned by Simon Downing and Victoria Noble for Discovery +. Jeremy Phillips is executive producer for Discovery alongside Bruce Kennedy and Ian Russell for ITN Productions. Mark Radice is the producer.
