Directed and written by Sam Bozzo, Hackers Wanted is a previously underground American documentary film, narrated by Kevin Spacey, which has recently come into light. It was first entitled Can You Hack It? It originally sought for a more conventional release but it ultimately couldn’t due to conflicts between its team members and its producer. Another reason was simply that the final product did not meet the quality standard its original creators had initially conceived it to bear, with Adrian Lamo, the central character of the documentary, even expressing his idea about a sense of irony the film harbored for itself.
The documentary film attempts discover the precursor of hackers, as well as determine the nature of hacking. It seeks to meet this objective by laying witness to the experiences of Adrian Lamo, and comparing his account with that of popular personalities in the face history.
A version of the film was leaked on May 20, 2010 to which Lamo denied any involvement to.
