HBO has released its first official photo from THE WIZARD OF LIES, the new TV movie chronicling the life of Bernie Madoff, the notorious white collar criminal who was running a Ponzi scheme that all fell apart.
Robert De Niro will be starring as Madoff, with Michelle Pfeiffer (his recent co-star in the feature film The Family) starring as Madoff’s wife, Ruth. The film will chronicle the fallout from the discovery of Madoff’s Ponzi scheme for both his clients and his own family.
This also won’t be the only Madoff-centric TV project. Richard Dreyfuss will be portraying him as well in an upcoming ABC limited series titled MADOFF.
