There’s a new movie coming up about a rogue trader, not surprising after all those Adoboli’s and Kerviel’s last years. Even better, it’s a Dutch movie, not surprising with all the Dutch trading firms ruling the global markets (ok, just kidding). Had the opportunity to have a coffee with the guys behind “Onbeperkt” (“Unlimited”).

Their knowledge about financial markets is pretty limited, but director Tom van Blommestein has been interviewing a dozen traders in the last couple of weeks to get a clear picture. After all it won’t be a movie about trading, but about a (former..) trader. Matthijs van de Sande Bakhuyzen will play the lead role and scenario by Philip Rolig. Shooting will start in a few weeks.

It’s a graduation project by the Nederlandse Filmacademie.¬†Will be broadcasted on national television and shown on film festivals around the world. The guys still need some financing for their film, and started a crowdsourcing item on Cinecrowd. Somehow they only need a tiny 300k 3k – of which only 1k is still left.¬†With all you billionaire traders reading this, consider donating a few bucks.

One day there will be subtitles. But not yet.
