By CCN.com:  A producer of Netflix hit “Mudbound” thinks he has what it takes to make a crypto movie that won’t bore people to death or fill their brains with inaccuracies about the space.

If you value the Oscars, you may believe he could pull this off considering “Mudbound” managed to get a nomination from the Academy Awards.

Using the Twitter handle @CommonEnemyInc, he threw out the idea on social media. Kyle Tekiela is named as a “five-time Emmy award winner and co-founder of Common Enemy” on the company’s website.


Fellow enthusiasts yearn for a movie that does the space justice, unlike “Crypto”. The Kurt Russell-starring movie was widely criticized for being produced by people who didn’t get bitcoin. With his passion for crypto, especially bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin, @CommonEnemyInc could pull off a flick that outdoes the others.

Who’s Down With Enemy?

Common Enemy’s tweet immediately drew a response from at least one significant player – Defrost – who wants in.


While the idea of another bitcoin movie drew applause, not everyone was on board.


Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

Common Enemy couched his crypto movie idea in a call for donations. Many may support the idea but they may be reluctant to donate.

He seemed to get that and stressed that he would not convert crypto donations into fiat:

“Everyone would be paid in crypto. A total crypto ecosystem from top to bottom. This has never been done before.”

Outdoing “Crypto” Movie Could Be A Breeze

Released in April, “Crypto” was pretty much a cryptocurrency-bashing flick. The clear ignorance of bitcoin further aggravated it being seen as legit.

Crypto was about how people find ways to exploit the system and the global economy. Their tools of choice include crypto. That’s about the only thing the movie gets right.


CCN.com reported on some of the ripping comments made about the movie.

  • “Hollywood makes crypto movies that insult crypto, I noticed. This is all so inaccurate.”
  • “Great, they are making a movie about crypto, but in the worst way possible.”
  • “LMAO Hollywood trying to scare people away from crypto!!!”
  • “Russia bad. Crypto bad. Thanks Hollywood, for yet another original plot.”
  • “Nice social programming. They used to make better propaganda material back in the day.”
