Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kyle Chandler and Uma Thurman are the stars of the new Showtime series SUPER PUMPED: THE BATTLE FOR UBER. Based on the true story, it is about the meteoric rise and merciless fall of Uber founder Travis Kalanick. We don’t exactly pity him though : Travis Kalanick is a billionaire and, according to the Forbes List 2018, with around 4.8 billion US dollars among the wealthiest Americans.
Robert ASCROFT c/o SEVERIN WENDELER photographed the key motifs and also filmed the mini trailers for the new showtime series.
Travis Kalanick stepped down as CEO of Uber in 2017 after five investors who together own more than 40 % of voting power in the company had pressured him to do so. As a member of the strategic and policy forum, Kalanick had been serving as an advisor to the more than controversially discussed US President, Donald Trump, since 2016. On 2 February, 2017, he declared his resignation from the position – stating that his participation was misinterpreted and was not endorsement of President Trump or his agenda.
Playing disgraced former Uber founder Kalanick is Hollywood favorite Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who already had the pleasure of gaining experience in the portrayal of people who are still very much alive with roles as Edward Snowden and Phillippe Petit.
