The subject of Martin Scorsese's 2013 biopic "The Wolf of Wall Street," Jordan Belfort, spent 22 months in prison for fraud and stock-market manipulation.

And now one of the film's producer Riza Aziz, is also likely headed to jail.

Aziz was formally charged on Friday in Malaysia on five counts of money laundering, including charges that he handled $248 million of stolen funds.

He was arrested on Thursday, pleaded not guilty, and was released on bail of  $240,000

Each of the charges are punishable with a fine of up to $1.21 million  or a jail term of up to five-years, or both. He faces up to 25 years in prison.

Aziz's other producing credits include "Daddy's Home," "Dumb and Dumber To," "Out of the Furnace," "Horns," and "Friends with Kids."
