Johnny Depp to star as antivirus mogul John McAfee in 'King of the Jungle'

UPI News Service, 05/15/2017 

Johnny Depp is set to star as McAfee antivirus software creator John McAfee in a new film titled King of the Jungle.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the dark comedy will be directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa from a script by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski.

King of the Jungle is based on a true story published in Wired magazine by Joshua Davis titled John McAfee's Last Stand which described the antivirus mogul as having cashed-in his fortune to live out his days in the jungle in Belize. There, he set-up a "Colonel Kurtz-like compound of guns, sex and madness," according to a statement.

In the film, the Wired magazine writer "accepts what he thinks is a run-of-the-mill assignment to interview McAfee, but once he arrives in Belize, he finds himself pulled into McAfee's escalating paranoia, slippery reality, and murder."

Depp will next be seen once again as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales which opens in theaters on May 26.
