Mark Wahlberg Producing Movie Based on ‘Sextortionist’ Hacker | Underwire | Wired.com

Marky Mark (sorry, that’s how we first came to love him) is working with his fellow Entourage/How to Make It in America/Boardwalk Empire executive producer Stephen Levinson to produce a still unnamed flick about a hacker who targets students at a suburban high school, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The movie will be loosely based on a recent GQ story called “The Hacker Is Watching” about Luis Miljangos, a disabled young man in California who hacked his way into computer webcams in order to watch his victims — the remote-access version of the trick the kids in Paranormal Activity 4 used to watch their specter while they were sleeping. Miljangos was labeled a “sextortionist” by the Department of Justice for taking sexually explicit photos from his victims’ computers and then threatening to post them online — a threat he used to try and extort webcam sex and explicit videos from women. (The wheelchair-bound Miljangos pleaded guilty to computer hacking and wiretapping and was given a 72-month sentence.)
