Mike Matusow, Daniel Negreanu and 888 Poker - Collage1. Mike Matusow Biopic Under Development.

According to Variety.com (link below), a biopic about Mike "The Mouth" Matusow is currently under development. The project, which is being produced by Adi Shankar, Spencer Silna and David Uslan, will reportedly be based on Matusow's autobiography "Check-Raising The Devil".

Mike Matusow has certainly had an interesting life and there is no doubt that it will make for an interesting movie. Matusow has lived through tremendous highs (World Series of Poker victories, 2005 WSOP Tournament of Champions) and unbelievable lows (jail, battle with addictions, etc), which should make for a pretty compelling movie. Despite all of his flaws, Matusow remains one of the most likeable figures in the poker world.

There is no word as of yet as to when this movie may hit theatres..
