Middle Men was made back in 2009, and has a decent amount of star power in, and behind, it. A modern story about an internet pioneer and his struggles after success.
Jack Harris, one of the pioneers of internet commerce, wrestles with his morals and struggles not to drown in a sea of conmen, mobsters, drug addicts, and pornstars after making his fortune online.
Luke Wilson plays the role of Jack, as he hits it big with internet porn.. and the shit-storm that ensues afterwords. Middlemen is the first sincere move based on the true story of the beginnings of the dial-up porn world, back when 14,400 was fast.
