Untitled MoviePass Project

The impossibly true story of the meteoric rise and tumultuous fall of infamous theatrical movie subscription service MoviePass as told through the eyes of African-American entrepreneurs Stacy Spikes and Hamet Watt, who were forced to watch the innovative startup they built be destroyed by greedy Wall Street con men who bled the revolutionary company to fund their extravagant lifestyles. Based on Insider’s award-winning reporting and first-hand accounts from the people who were there as it all went down, the film details the challenges for minority entrepreneurs as it explores the pop culture phenomenon’s stranger-than-fiction implosion in the wake of executive excess, sexual harassment suits, lavish Cannes and Coachella bashes, and a litany of Federal fraud investigations.
