"Middle Men," a sweeping epic based on the true story of the two men largely responsible for turning the internet into a cross between a porn theater and an ATM, has been bought by Paramount, which plans to release it later this year.
Jack Harris has a faithful and loving wife, two beautiful children, and a successful career fixing companies. When an associate calls him about an opportunity to help turn around a business that has fallen into trouble, he decides to take the job. Little does he know, it is a decision that will change his life in ways he never expected.
Jack meets with Wayne Beering and Buck Dolby, two genius but troubled men who have invented a way to sell adult entertainment over the internet. The plan was brilliant but the execution wasn't; They were making money hand-over-fist and losing it just as fast. Seeing the potential, Jack agrees to partner with Buck and Wayne, devising a way to bill the entertainment through a third party, taking the guilt out of the ultimate guilty pleasure.
Before he knows it, he finds himself caught between the Russian mob, a 23-year old porn star, the FBI and losing his family in the process of becoming rich.
Witness a story so outrageous, you won't believe it's true. A story that proves business is a lot like sex... getting in is easy, pulling out is hard.
Judging by the extensive for-mature-audiences-only trailer -- which can be found at the 45:35 mark of this clip from the Kevin Pollack Chat Show -- the film is a mix of "Blow," "Boogie Nights," "Casino," "Lord of War" and "Traffic" thrown into a blender. Can't wait.
