You're nobody until somebody makes a movie about you.
Just days after the passing of Apple founder Steve Jobs, Sony is working to acquire Walter Isaacson's biography of Jobs, simply titled Steve Jobs, which is set to be published in November.
With Jobs being unquestionably the biggest name in technology and the most renowned inventor of this generation, it's not unexpected for studios to be swarming to pick up the rights to put Jobs' story on the big screen.
According to Deadline, the rights for Isaacson's book could go for as much as $3 million. The reason? This is Job's authorized biography, meaning Isaacson's book will have intimate details about Jobs.
Deadline brings up the point that the book was actually originally set to publish in March but a few months ago, the release date was moved up to November. Now that Jobs has passed away, the book will be released on Oct. 24. Who should play Steve Jobs? Posted 10.09.11 by Chris
