John McAfee keeps surprising us with his new projects. Currently, one of the most popular ones, beside the presidential campaign, is his autobiographical movie called “King of the Jungle”.
Some facts about the movie have been floating around the Internet for quite a while. For example, it was known that the movie would be directed by the creators of American Crime Story, it would be focused on the time in McAfee’s life when he went wild and moved to Belize (that’s why “King of the Jungle).
Most importantly, everyone knew that McAfee would be played by a Hollywood star Johnny Depp.
However, there was not much more information on the project, the release dates were unknown, and some people even doubted that the film would come out at all.
It turned out that the movie is very real and is still in production, but with some changes. Johnny Depp is no longer the actor who will portray McAfee. The crypto enthusiast will be played by the star of Beetlejuice, Michael Keaton.
As for why such decision was taken, McAfee himself did not give any clear explanation, but judging by his tweet, he doesn’t really fancy Depp.
For those trolls who say I was only using Johnny Depp"s name to promote the movie about me . . . . . No. He was on board for almost a year before being fired. The pussy couldn't handle my drugs. Keaton will have no problem.https://t.co/BHqGxSs3MJ

We don’t know whether these two have history, or Depp was just not brilliant enough to play such a personality, but hopefully, Michael Keaton will cope this difficult task.
