Robert De Niro Becomes Bernie Madoff in the First Trailer for 'The Wizard of Lies'
Published Jan 16, 2017Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff is certainly one dirty grandpa, so it only makes sense that HBO tapped Dirty Grandpa lead Robert De Niro to play him in their next motion picture.
The film, which was directed by Barry Levinson, has been given the fairly ridiculous title The Wizard of Lies. The first tease from the project is highly stylized, pairing surreal visuals with Marilyn Manson's version of "I Put a Spell on You."
Watch the trailer for The Wizard of Lies below, and look for the film to hit HBO in May.
