Trailer for Showtime's Doc 'Gringo: The Dangerous Life of John McAfee'
"He would talk about his hitmen, he would talk about how he could have people hurt or killed." Showtime has debuted a trailer for the documentary Gringo: The Dangerous Life of John McAfee, from director Nanette Burstein, which is playing at the Toronto Film Festival now. You probably remember hearing about this story - John McAfee, founder of the popular anti-virus software that bears his name, was accused of murdering his ex-pat neighbor in Belize in late 2012. He escaped the country and was eventually deported back to the United States, but never charged. The doc examines the story and the wild side of McAfee, and reviews from TIFF indicate that this shows he was involved in not one, but two, murders. This looks crazy.
First trailer for Nanette Burstein's doc Gringo: The Dangerous Life of John McAfee, found via TMB:

Gringo: The Dangerous Life of John McAfee is directed by filmmaker Nanette Burstein, of The Kid Stays in the Picture, American Teen and Going the Distance previously. The doc just premiered at the Toronto Film Festival this month. Showtime will debut the documentary on VOD + on TV starting September 24th. For more info, visit their website. Interested?
