We all know the The Wolf Of Wall Street is a true story, but who knew even the production company who funded the film was involved in some shady business?
The Department of Justice filed a civil suit charging the production company, Red Granite Pictures, with illegally funding The Wolf Of Wall Street with stolen money.
The film is only a small part of a much larger suit, but nonetheless, is still a factor in the case. The Justice Department is looking for future profits and royalties from the film in order to recover $3.5 billion!
Red Granite Pictures better hope their story doesn’t end the same way Jordan Belfort’s did.
