Ed Wood writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski will draft the script of Warner Bros.’ John McAfee film, centering on the eccentric British-American computer programmer and McAfee, Inc. founder.  Based on the Wired magazine article “John McAfee’s Last Stand” written by Joshua Davis, the film aims to show how the anti-virus entrepreneur who built his fortune on fear and paranoia later succumbed to those same emotions.  It features the wild story of McAfee’s flight to Belize, where he assembled a private security force to protect himself and his teenage girlfriend inside his compound, as well as his connections to illegal drug manufacturing and murder.  As Deadline reports,  Crazy, Stupid, Love. directors John Requa and Glenn Ficarra hope to produce and direct the picture in association with Conde Nast Entertainment.
