    Steve Jobs - The Movie

    Well, it look slike they are going ahead with one: Steve Jobs: The Movie in the works ? The Register
    I note that they show the studio that made The Social network as the one who will shoot this, but I hope they do a better job (no pun intended) than that, which on reflection was not quite what I was expecting, however they do note The Pirates of Silicon Valley as the only other film to feature Steve Jobs (Note - If you have not seen POSV I highly suggest you try and locate a copy. netier Steve Jobs or Bill Gates comes out of it in a good light, but given the cut throat nature of the business it's hardly surprising).
    It would be nice to see a 'warts-and-all' film, and, given the life he's led and the things he's achieved the truth will be far better than any scriptwriters imagination, and hopefully it will make geek culture a bit more open to the movie business. I'd love to see a movie about ID Software

    I would also recommend Triumph Of The Nerds too (for those who don't want to read Accidental Empires).

    I'd love to think that this would be a true representation accuratly depicting his contributions but I fear it will just be another puff piece with content on a par with the later I'm a Mac ads.

    They should rope in the people who made POSV to work on it. After all, they chronicled the early career, so they know where to start.

    It definitely should not paint him as an angel, as he wasn't. But it shouldn't paint him as a devil either.

    I've heard once the film is released it will be re-released every 6 months but everytime slightly better than the last one.

    Reading this at the moment:

    Inside Intel: Amazon.co.uk: Tim Jackson: Books

    And it's quite brilliant and jaw dropping.

    Will it be more expensive to see than other films too?

    According to the radio news, it will be based entirely on his autobiography

    although knowing hollywoods truth bending department i'm sure there will be time for him to also save england from talking german in ww2, kill a few hundred terrorists single handedly and then fly away in a spaceship (unless of course this is actually in his autobiography)
