The way the story goes … Steven Mnuchin roped Charles Koch, David Koch and Gates into a production company he helped start to finance movies like ‘WW,’ “Dunkirk,” and Spielberg’s upcoming “Ready Player One.”
The Koch Brothers struck a $450 million deal in 2013 to become stakeholders in Mnuchin’s company RatPac-Dune Entertainment … and Gates was brought in as an investor for a similar amount, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Although Mnuchin has divested from the company because of his gig in Trump’s administration … the Koch Brothers are reportedly still very much involved.
Also worth noting … reps for the Kochs denied investing in RatPac.
Still, it’s interesting. The Koch Brothers — worth more than $96 billion — are known as backers of conservative efforts.
Wonder how Diana Prince would feel about this.
