Actor Robert De Niro will play Bernie Madoff in an adaptation of Truth and Consequences: Life Inside the Madoff Family. The book was written by Madoff’s son Andrew, Andrew's fiancée, and Bernie's wife, Ruth. The three appeared in a 60 Minutes interview that aired last Sunday. HBO recently purchased the movie rights to the new book. De Niro’s production company, Tribeca Productions, is producing the film.
