Volkswagening, the Movie

vwParamount hat sich die Rechte an einem (noch nicht geschriebenen) Buch über den Abgas-Skandel gesichert. Ging ja schnell und wenn das Ergebnis so ein bisschen wird, wie The Insider – Zigarettenindustrie-Dings mit Al Pacino und Russel Crowe, hier der Trailer – könnte das sogar halbwegs interessant werden:

Paramount Pictures and Appian Way’s Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson have acquired a four page proposal for a book by Jack Ewing that will detail the Volkswagen’s Clean Diesel Scandal that led to the resignation of Volkswagen Group CEO Martin Winterkorn and shook up the global automobile market. The book will reveal how the 'more, better, faster' dictum that prevails in 21st century boardrooms can lead down a dark path. The story follows the events of the scandal in which the company placed illegal software in their Clean Diesel cars that could tell when a car was being tested for fuel emissions and would turn on the emissions controls to cheat the test and meet EPA standards.
