Will We Be Seeing ‘The Apple Network: A Steve Jobs Tale’ Soon?

Is this too soon? Sony has bought the film rights for Steve Jobs, a book by Walter Isaacson that contains a collection of interviews from the man himself and friends and family. This reminds me of the time when the documentary, This Is It, came out right after the death of Michael Jackson. It might be cashing in on his death, but if it’s good, then it would be an awesome tribute to the legacy of Steve Jobs.

Based on more than forty interviews with Jobs conducted over two years-as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues-Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

There are no screenwriters attached yet, but if it does get made, having David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin behind it would be a good move.

The book, Steve Jobs, will be out October 24, 2011.
