Sony Pictures is looking to produce a movie from the soon-to-be-released biography titled Steve Jobs. The book, written by Walter Isaacson, is now scheduled to hit the shelves, both physical and virtual, on October 24.
Film School Rejects reports that Mark Gordon will be the producer. Sony has recently had a string of hits based on biographies, including The Social Network and Moneyball. Given the world’s reaction to Mr. Jobs passing, this movie would surely extend that string.
The biography was authorized by Mr. Jobs and it has been reported that the extremely private man gave permission so that his children would know him better. Pre-orders for the book have seen sales rise meteorically in the days following his death. The author is the last person to have interviewed Mr. Jobs before his passing.
No release date, cast, or crew have been mentioned yet for the movie.
