The rise and precipitous fall of real estate company WeWork - along with its infamous co-founder and ex-CEO Adam Neumann - will be the subject of a new film by written by Charles Randolph, who somehow made arcane financial dealings make sense in The Big Short.

Book focuses on the intertwined lives and ambitions of Masayoshi Son, CEO of Softbank, and Adam Neumann, CEO of WeWork, the latter which has been mired in scandal since its failed IPO.

Brooker is a senior contributing writer for Fast Company whose reporting in the tech sphere has appeared in Vanity Fair, The New York Times, Fortune and Bloomberg.

WeWork pulled the plug on an initial public offering in September after investors raised questions against its mounting losses. It accepted a bailout from SoftBank in October.

Screenwriter Charles Randolph, who won an adapted screenplay Oscar for "The Big Short", is on board to write the film. He penned the script for Jay Roach's upcoming "Bombshell", starring Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie.

Earlier this year, Blumhouse Television produced The Loudest Voice, the limited series for Showtime, about Ailes that starred Russell Crowe, Sienna Miller, Naomi Watts, Seth MacFarlane and Annabelle Wallis. Their upcoming slate also includes Black Christmas, Fantasy Island, The Invisible Man, film and TV adaptations of The Stolen Kids of Sarah Lawrence, The Craft, Halloween Kills, and Halloween Ends.
