Report: The Steve Jobs Biopic is Coming

You knew it would happen sooner or later: Late Apple founder Steve Jobs will reportedly be getting getting the big screen biopic treatment, courtesy of Sony. The Social Network studio has acquired feature rights to Walter Isaacson's as-yet unreleased authorized book Steve Jobs, which culls interviews with Jobs and his close associates and family members and has been fast-tracked to hit shelves October 24. It should be an interesting match, considering Sony's tech division is a direct Apple competitor; imagine the cross-branding planning meetings! As for the film, fantasy casting is wide open.
