Sony Pictures Working on a Movie About Steve Jobs



According to Deadline, Sony Pictures is working on a “hefty deal” to secure the rights to Walter Isaacson’s official Steve Jobs biography for a major feature film.

The movie will allegedly detail the story of how Jobs built Apple from the ground up in the heart of Silicon Valley. The biography that the movie will be based on features over 40 official interviews with Jobs, as well as hundreds of personal anecdotes from his friends and competitors.

Sony Pictures knows a thing or two about compelling technology stories. The studio has created Oscar-nominated titles like The Social Network.

CNET speculates that Noah Wyle is being considered for playing the role of Jobs in the upcoming biopic. Wyle played Jobs in the 1999 made-for-TV film called Pirates of Silicon Valley.

Hopefully Sony Pictures can get the ball rolling on a Steve Jobs biopic soon. Are you excited about a Steve Jobs movie coming to a theatre near you?
