Sony Pictures to Make Steve Jobs Biopic

Posted: October 8th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Sony Pictures to Make Steve Jobs BiopicSubmit Comment
Sony Pictures is in the process of acquiring film rights to "Steve Jobs," the upcoming authorized biography by former CNN chairman and Time Magazine managing editor Walter Isaacson.

Book description: Based on more than forty interviews with Jobs conducted over two years - as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues - Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

Back in 1999, TNT aired "Pirates of Silicon Valley," a film which chronicled the rise of Jobs. It starred Anthony Michael Hall as Bill Gates and Noah Wyle as Jobs. The network re-aired "Pirates" back-to-back on Thursday night in tribute.

Well, the book was already being made, but c'mon Hollywood. Isn't it a little too early for a movie?

@DexterMorgan

If Harold Ramis lost weight. He would be the #1 contender.

Sony would have planned this the second they heard he was sick.

@DexterMorgan. In some pictures, Jobs kinda reminds me at Tom Cruise (Les Grossman)

As much as I love my Ipod (thank you so much Mr. Jobs) I have no interest in seeing a movie about his life.

(Isn't this guy's family rich enough?)

It would be nice of them to see any proceeds of the movie go to a charity.
