Before Blackhat was announced, there were wide rumours over what movie Michael Mann would be making next. One film in the mix was called “Gold”, a screenplay by Patrick Massett and John Zinman. Under their production company Hwy 61 Paul Haggis and Michael Nozik, showed it to Mann. It turns out that Mann initially signed up to the project, but pulled out in 2012 – lured by the challenge of creating a technological thriller that has never been seen before on the subject of “this could happen, and is happening” computer hacking: Blackhat.
Matthew McConaughey is currently linked with interest to “Gold”, and is also under consideration by director Stephen Gaghan. All the details on who picked up the “Gold” film is right here, on this link.
