As global NFT sales hit $25 billion last year, the spectacle of non-fungible tokens is revolutionizing the film industry. Every day, customers can become film financiers by acquiring a share in a film or series through pre-sale NFTs.
Today, the films' characters of Ian, played by Alex Høgh Andersen (Vikings), Javier, played by Darko Peric (Money Heist) and Elin played by Alex Essoe (Doctor Sleep) have agreed to be released as NFTs. The upcoming film, in collaboration with Samizdat Pictures, charts the fictional escape to freedom of John McAfee, after his imprisonment in Spain. Filming in Barcelona in April, the movie will be shopped to buyers at Cannes International Film Festival in May, before its widespread release.
Riaz Mehta, founder and CEO of ritestream, comments: "This deal signifies an awesome moment in history where we will give fans the opportunity to own a piece of the movie as an NFT even before its release. "Riaz continues: "John McAfee is an icon amongst the crypto community and with NFTs booming in popularity, I believe the NFT's from Stealing McCloud will become a treasured collectible for any NFT aficionado. This partnership marks the beginning of a string of amazing film and TV projects that we are bringing to the ritestream platform and connecting fans with their favorite content."
