Wall Street Bets founder sells his life story to film production studio owned by Brett Ratner

• Business Insider

-RatPac Entertainment bought the exclusive right to the WallStreetBets founder's life story.

-The company plans to make a series of content following the founder's life.

-The producer who bought the rights has stayed out of the limelight since being accused of sexual misconduct.

The founder of WallStreetBets — the Reddit Group that launched the GameStop frenzy — just made his first Hollywood deal with producer Brett Ratner, who was previously accused of sexual misconduct.

Jaime Rogozinski, the creator of the WallStreetBets forum on Reddit, sold exclusive rights to his life's story to Ratner's production studio, one of the producers behind big budget movies like "Wonder Woman" and "Dunkirk," according to The Wall Street Journal.

The founder was approached by several Hollywood producers, according to The Journal, but chose Ratner, a producer that has stepped out of the limelight as of late after several women came forward alleging sexual harassment or misconduct in 2017.
