Lily Collins has signed up to star in Hulu limited true crime series ‘Razzlekhan: The Infamous Crocodile of Wall Street.’
Based on the New York magazine article “The Many Lives of Crypto’s Most Notorious Couple,” the series focuses on Lichtenstein and Morgan, tipped to be either the masterminds behind one of the largest heists in history or a pair of hapless wannabe entrepreneurs who somehow stumbled onto a hard drive containing $3.6 billion in Bitcoin stolen from the Finex exchange.
Collins (Emily In Paris) is set to star as Morgan in the series.
The title, ‘Razzlekhan,’ comes from Morgan’s alter ego as a YouTube rapper.
Described as a character study, a love story and a crime thriller told with humour and honesty, the series will follow Heather and Ilya as they struggle with their relationship, the pressures of sitting on stolen crypto with no easy way to make it liquid, and their aspirations in the fishbowl of the NYC tech/media world. The show will be told through the eyes of the couple as well as hackers, bankers, law enforcement agents and friends.
Charlie McDowell will direct and produce, Collins will also produce alongside Alex Orlovsky.
