It looks like popular professional poker player Mike “The Mouth” Matusow will have one more thing to talk about at the tables. His life story is in development to be made into a motion picture.
According to Variety, producer Adi Shankar (Lone Survivor, unauthorized Marvel movies) and his partners have acquired the rights to Matusow’s autobiography “Check-Raising The Devil” with sights set on making it into a movie.
The autobiography details Matusow’s poker playing as well as his addiction to drugs, depression and jail time and, of course, Matusow’s silver tongued tirades that gave him his well-known nickname.
If you don’t know who Adi Shankar is, he’s the Executive Producer that brought you Lone Survivor which featured Dan Bilzerian for a hot minute. But also, he’s the guy who financed and made the super sick unauthorized Marvel movies.
