Studios Bid for Movie Rights to Iconic Con Man’s Life Story

2021-08-10 19:44:55 - HOLLYWOOD, CA. - (PR Distribution™)

Twenty years ago Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster motion picture, Catch Me if You Can, starring Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio swept the Oscars and the box office.  Now the movie rights to an even more exciting con man story goes up for sale in Tinseltown. 

Steve Comisar is perhaps the most famous con man on planet earth. He is best known for being the only famous con artist who is also a Hollywood actor. With a lifetime of exciting adventures under his belt Comisar is now pitching the movie and book rights to his amazing life story. And what a story it is!

In 1994 Comisar was sent to Club-fed for selling one million solar powered clothes dryers for $49.95. Advertised in national magazines as a scientifically proven, space-age method of drying clothes using only the power of the sun, buyers received a length of clothesline and Comisar made millions.  In prison, Comisar wrote the bestselling book, America’s Guide to Fraud Prevention, and reinvented himself as Brett Champion, Consumer Watchdog.

After getting released Comisar parlayed his con man celebrity brand into nearly 100 guest appearances on television talk shows and news magazine programs. Comisar pulled live hidden camera scams on television studio audiences and then gave insightful fraud prevention advice. America ate it up and wanted more. It didn’t take long for Comisar to cement himself as the worlds leading authority on fraud, scams, and con games.

Comisar went on to star in the top rated CBS prime time television special,  In the Mind of Con Artists, which was watched by over 10 million viewers.  He then starred in the award winning documentary film, Making Crime Pay, which is now used to train local, state, and federal law enforcement agents. As a crowning achievement Comisar then became the on-camera fraud expert on Dateline NBC and The View. Some of his exciting television appearances are on his YouTube channel and have been watched by millions of viewers.

Comisar then set his sights on acting full time. He secured a powerful Hollywood agent and landed the co-starring role in the motion picture, Tough Luck.  He was ready to embark on a successful acting career when he got arrested for fraud again and was not released until 2018. 

Comisar is now a free man and ready to resume his once promising acting and fraud prevention careers.  He joins the exclusive list of other actors and celebrities who went to prison and were released to become even more successful than before. Some of these stars include Mark Wahlberg, Wesley Snipes, Tim Allen, Martha Stewart, Christian Slater, and Robert Downey Jr. 

If any Hollywood A-listers want to help Steve now is the time to reach out. Comisar’s manager Victor Kruglov says, “A few decent acting jobs will put Steve back in the acting game again as a force to be reckoned with.  All he needs is a few powerful stars to step up and help him. With just one phone call from one of these Hollywood heavyweights and he would be working as an actor again. A movie about Steve Comisar’s life would be the icing on the cake. It would be even more exciting and profitable than all previous con man films ever made. Did you hear that, Mr. Spielberg?”
