HBO has released a new teaser for their original film The Wizard of Lies, which stars Robert De Niro as infamous swindler Bernie Madoff. The teaser is selling an intense drama about his betrayals.
Directed by Barry Levinson and also starring Michelle Pfeiffer, Alessandro Nivola, Nathan Darrow, Kristen Connolly, Lily Rabe, and Hank Azaria, The Wizard of Lies premieres on HBO on May 20th.
In 2008, stockbroker, investment advisor and financier Bernie Madoff made headlines around the world when he was arrested for perpetrating perhaps the largest financial fraud in U.S. history.
Debuting in May, HBO Films’ THE WIZARD OF LIES examines Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme – his deception, lies and cover-up, all as the financier’s wife and sons are catapulted into a harsh and unrelenting spotlight.
