Not even one month after the news of Volkswagen’s emission scandal broke, Paramount Pictures has optioned the movie rights to a book about the company and its wrongdoings.

The movie will be based on Jack Ewing’s to-be-written book on Volkswagen for W.W. Norton & Company.

Although no details about the prospective film have emerged, it will, of course, center around the German automaker’s deliberate manipulation of its vehicles’ “test mode” to pass the Environmental Protection Agency’s inspection. Volkswagen’s U.S. CEO has admitted to cheating the tests, and the company will likely face as much as $18 billion in fines.

Currently, without a book as a guiding force, it’s not clear on which aspects of the controversy the film will focus. Paramount should probably call up Aaron Sorkin, though, who’s penned scripts for films about monumental events (The Social Network and Steve Jobs) that focused on the characters, not the hoopla surrounding them. Regardless of director, the future Volkswagen film will join a list of movies detailing corporate greed. Here’s a sampling of some more memorable members of the genre.

‘Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room’

Yes, it’s a documentary, but Enron is the gold-standard for corporate corruption. With greed so rampant and calculated, the Enron scandal didn’t need to be dramatized to convey the absurdity of the situation.

‘Wall Street’

If Enron’s the real-world standard-bearer for corruption, Michael Douglas’ Gordon Gekko is the platonic ideal. Ruthlessly after money and success at anybody else’s expense, he is the symbol for corporate culture in America.

‘Food, Inc.’

Traders don’t get all the corruption fun! The 2008 documentary uncovers the inner workings of the food industry to show that, yep, the man behind the curtain is controlling how we eat. Unlike the other films, though, there’s no particular villain and no comeuppance to be had at the end.

‘United Passions’

United Passions, more likely known as “The FIFA Movie,” is a propaganda film about FIFA’s creation, released around the same time as several FIFA officials were arrested on corruption charges. It had a budget of about $30 million and grossed just $319 on its first day in theaters. United Passions is not about corruption. It is corruption.

If you’re making a salad for Thanksgiving dinner, skip the romaine lettuce this year. An E. coli outbreak linked to romaine has been detected in the US and Canada, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced on Tuesday.

As of November 20, the CDC’s official count of people affected by the outbreak reached 32 across 11 US states. Out of these, the CDC reported 13 hospitalizations and no deaths. In Canada, 18 people have been confirmed sick in Ontario and Quebec. The cases the CDC knows about were all reported between October 8 and October 31.

On Monday, scientists revealed the first images of a human inside the world’s newest total body scanner, called EXPLORER. The name is fitting because this scanner really leaves absolutely nothing to the imagination, tracking the way drugs and disease progress through every nook and cranny in the body.

Designed by biomedical engineering professor Simon Cherry, Ph.D., and biophysicist Ramsey Badawi, Ph.D. at University of California, Davis, this scanner produces images that look like a hybrid between a PET scan (which is often used to find tumors) and an X-ray, all in ghostly black and white. But what’s interesting about EXPLORER, which will be officially unveiled at the Radiological Society of North America meeting on November 24th, isn’t that it produces detailed images of tissues or bones. Cherry tells Inverse that it can also create 3D movies showing where certain drugs may end up in the body.

When disaster strikes, conspiracy theorists get to work blaming shadow networks of evil-doers. And the 2018 California wildfires are no exception. On Monday morning, the official tally of deaths from the three concurrent fires rose to 80, while the number of missing persons totaled 993, reports NPR. And while the official investigation into the causes of the fires remains open, conspiracy theorists on the internet claim they’ve got the answer: directed energy weapons mounted on aircraft. That’s right — laser planes.

I grew up believing in the forward trajectory of progress in science and medicine — that human health would continue to improve as it had for hundreds of years. As I progressed through my own career in health sciences, I continued to be optimistic.

Now I have serious doubts.
