North.Five.Six To Oversee International Sales For Chloë Grace Moretz Heist Pic ‘Dutch & Razzlekhan,’ Introducing To Buyers at Cannes

North.Five.Six is set to handle international sales for the true-life heist pic Dutch & Razzlekhan, on which we were first to report. Starring Chloë Grace Moretz (The Peripheral), Lewis Pullman (Lessons in Chemistry) and Ariana DeBose (West Side Story), the film will be introduced to buyers at Cannes later this month, with CAA Media Finance repping domestic rights.

Based on the 2022 Business Insider article “The $4.5 Billion Question” by Rob Price and Becky Peterson, Dutch & Razzlekhan is the explosive and unbelievably true story of the most expensive heist in history, with Heather “Razzlekhan” Morgan (Moretz) and Ilya “Dutch” Lichtenstein (Pullman) — lovers, hipsters, and aspiring rapper-entrepreneurs — at its center. DeBose plays Carla Vargas, the master hacker who was blackmailed by the FBI to help track down the duo.

After stealing over $4 billion worth of cryptocurrency, the millennial couple was caught by the Department of Justice and charged with conspiracy to launder the stolen bitcoin in February 2022. The pair were convicted the following year.

BAFTA nominee Jon S. Baird (Tetris) is directing the film on their misadventures, from a script by Logan Miller and Noah Miller (G20, White Boy Rick). Andrew Lazar’s Mad Chance (Nyad, George & Tammy) is aboard to produce the pic entering production this summer, with North.Five.Six’s Michael Rothstein and Samuel Hall executive producing.

As with the story of Sam Bankman-Fried, the entrepreneur behind the now-bankrupt cryptocurrency exchange FTX, who was convicted of fraud, conspiracy and money laundering in November 2023, the tale of Dutch & Razzlekhan is one that has drawn plenty of interest in Hollywood, leading to the development of a number of starry projects. Lily Collins signed on to portray the latter in Hulu limited series Razzlekhan: The Infamous Crocodile of Wall Street, with Amazon MGM announcing development on its film Razzlekhan, to be directed by Hannah Marks and produced by Lili Reinhart, earlier this year.
