In an interview with Inverse, producers Jordan Yale Levine and Jordan Beckerman of Yale Productions revealed that neither of them “considers themselves to be experts in actual real-life cryptocurrency.”

“Both of us have dabbled,” Yale Levine was quoted saying. “I don’t know if either of us would consider ourselves expert. It was really our writers who fleshed out the topic and dove into the research. They were the ones who really became experts to make sure the film was authentic.”

The news outlet elaborated that “Crypto may not be as satisfying for die-hard cryptocurrency enthusiasts,” noting:

It doesn’t particularly focus on any particular coin…[But] the overall message of the movie is positive, even if [it] does focus on crime, corruption, and cryptocurrency.

Expected to be released next year, the movie “tells a classic crime thriller set against the backdrop of shady cryptocurrency dealings,” the publication described.

Emphasizing that he and Beckerman “hope that cryptocurrency is here to stay,” Yale Levine further commented:

We hope it [cryptocurrency] lasts for a long time…That’s one of the reasons why we wanted to do the film. We’re not into fads. We hope it stays around for a long time.

The Cast, Movie, and Filming Location

The producers told the publication that “Beau Napp was the first to sign on, thanks to a connection with one of the writers on Crypto…Next was Kurt Russell…As for Bledel, the Gilmore Girls actress is represented by the same agency as her two male co-stars, so the entire thing just fell into place.”

Beckerman detailed, “Bledel has won Emmys. Kurt Russell is a legend. I think it’s just a really strong cast that came on board.”

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Crypto is about a young money laundering agent (Knapp) living in a remote New York hometown. While his father (Russell) and brother (Hemswroth) struggle to maintain their family farm, the agent is “tasked with investigating a tangled web of corruption and fraud” involving cryptocurrency.

Yale Levine added, “Crypto was filmed 95 percent upstate…but we did shoot a couple of days in NYC.”
