Matthew McConaughey Cast in ‘The Billionaire’s Vinegar’

Actor Matthew McConaughey has been cast in the movie adaptation of ‘The Billionaire’s Vinegar’. The adaptation comes from the book written by Benjamin Wallace, ‘The Billionaire’s Vinegar: The Mystery of the World’s Most Expensive Bottle of Wine’

The film will be produced by Todd Black, James Lassiter, Jason Blumenthal, Steve Tisch and Will Smith. Also on board are Michael Brandt and Derek Haas for writing the script of the film adaptation.

The book centers on a Forbes family member paying $156,000 at auction for a bottle of 1787 Chateau Lafite Bordeaux, which Christie’s asserted was part of a Jefferson cache discovered in France. That bottle led to a lawsuit by wine collector Bill Koch against wine merchant Hardy Rodenstock, alleging that he had orchestrated a fraud against wine collectors. A default judgment was entered against Rodenstock in May 2010.

Matthew McConaughey is a busy man with lots of other projects coming up including a civil war movie.
