The movie, which is yet to be given a title, will be the second project in a row in which McKay has tackled a tough real-life subject following his deconstruction of the financial crisis in the Oscar winning The Big Short (2015), with his take on Holmes’ journey set to follow the Theranos founder through the entirety of her empire’s construction and collapse, with a specific focus on how Holmes became bankrupt seemingly overnight despite, at one time, being worth $4.5Billion.
