Amanda Milius Acquires Rights to John McAfee Movie

( )- Documentary filmmaker Amanda Milius, the director of the 2020 RussiaGate documentary “The Plot Against the President,” has acquired the film and television rights to author Mark Eglinton’s upcoming book, “No Domain: The John McAfee Tapes.”

Milius’ production company, AMDC Films beat out other Hollywood producers to acquire the rights to this highly anticipated book which AMDC will be developing into a feature documentary.

“No Domain: The John McAfee Tapes” is drawn from hours of conversations between the author and McAfee recorded in 2019. The story chronicles the tech founder’s freewheeling life – from overdosing on LSD to founding his billion-dollar software company to working on CIA dark programs. “No Domain” covers McAfee’s time on the run from the government, his 2016 bid for the Libertarian Party’s nomination for president, and his alleged framing for murder in Belize.

Milius, the daughter of director/screenwriter John Milius (“Apocalypse Now” and “Dirty Harry”), previously served in the Trump State Department.

In an interview with Breitbart News, Milius said Hollywood has become like the North Korean regime demanding “ultimate obedience.” So to weave their way through Hollywood’s cancel culture, Milius said AMDC was willing to accommodate requests from filmmakers and artists who wish to work under assumed names.

Milius was drawn to Mark Eglinton’s book because “I have a great fondness for brave men.”

Describing McAfee as “one of the most original, iconoclastic, vibrant, exciting, and interesting men to have ever lived,” Milius said that she is grateful to work with an author “whose bravery and loyalty to the subject shines through.”

Her 2020 hit documentary “The Plot Against the President” was based on the bestselling book by author Lee Smith.

Though it received very little mainstream attention, “The Plot Against the President” became one of the biggest hits of last year. It chronicles Congressman Devin Nunes’ tireless efforts to uncover the deep state operation to bring down President Donald Trump using the phony Russian Collusion hoax. Milius said “The Plot Against the President” “was about moral courage.”
