There’s a Silk Road Movie on the Way

Ross Ulbricht’s journey in creating the infamous darknet marketplace known as Silk Road was always destined for the big screen.

Operating under the pseudonym Dread Pirate Roberts, Ulbricht founded and operated the darknet site that would eventually snowball into a multi-million dollar pipeline for illegal drugs—all at the age of just 29.

Anyone who’s familiar in the slightest with the Silk Road story will know it’s a wild ride from start to finish, and if you’re itching to know more before the film’s release on February 19, go check out David Kushner’s 2014 Rolling Stone article on which the film is based, or hit play on the trailer for Silk Road above.
