Why It Matters: There is no clarity on what angle the feature is likely to take, according to Deadline. 

Amazon did not immediately respond to Benzinga's request for comment on the development.

It was reported earlier that Apple Inc. AAPL was near a deal to secure book rights for "The Big Short" fame author Michael Lewis’ latest work on Bankman-Fried and FTX.

Adam McKay, who adapted “The Big Short” into a film, is expected to be involved in the Apple feature.

Price Action: On Wednesday, Amazon shares closed 1% higher at $94.13 in the regular session and gained 0.5% in the after-hours trading, according to data from Benzinga Pro.
