Dev Patel prepares for dramatic thriller Flash Crash

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Oscar nominee Dev Patel (Lion, Slumdog Millionaire) has signed up for the dramatic thriller Flash Crash, based on the upcoming book by Liam Vaughan, Flash Crash: A Trading Savant, a Global Manhunt, and the Most Mysterious Market Crash in History.

The novel tells the true story of Navinder Singh Sarao, a brilliant man who figured out how to beat the stock market, earning millions in the process. Things take a turn for Sarao when the market drops by roughly $1 trillion, which suddenly puts him the crosshairs of U.S. government agents. The young man must find a way to play the system one last time or face a lifetime in jail via a system intent on making an example out of him.

Jonathan Perera (Miss Sloane) will pen the screenplay.

See-Saw Films and New Regency won the rights to the novel in a bidding war. The former will head development, financing, and production.

“Navinder Sarao’s story struck us deeply. He’s an unlikely but also complex hero who exposed the manipulations at the heart of the global financial system,” said See-Saw’s Iain Canning and Emile Sherman in a statement.
