Filming Starts on Madoff Documentary

”Foxhounds“ will look at Ponzi scheme whistleblower

Production has started on a new documentary focused on Harry Markopolos, who warned about the Bernie Madoff fraud a decade before his Ponzi scheme came to light.

Entitled "Foxhounds," the film is based on Markopolos’ bestselling memoir "No One Would Listen: A True Financial Thriller."

As an independent financial fraud analyst, Markopolos repeatedly warned the Securities and Exchange Commission about Madoff’s practices only to have them turn a deaf ear.

The film will be directed and produced by Jeff Prosserman, who directed "Unlearn," a 2006 documentary about mental illness. It is executive produced by Jeff Sackman, Randy Manis and Anton Nadler.

The movie is expected to premiere next fall.
