Sony acquires rights to Steve Jobs Biopic.

According to reports, Sony Pictures has acquired the film rights to the upcoming biography “Steve Jobs,” by Walter Isaacson. The biography, due to be released in book form just under two weeks, was written with cooperation from Steve Jobs. It will be the definitive account of Jobs’ life, if recently released excerpts are any indication of its quality. But even the most felicitous books are usually mangled by the silver screen, and we can only assume Sony will evaluate how the book is received by literate public before deciding if and how to proceed. It’s no surprise, then, that there is no other information regarding Sony’s actual plans for its newly acquired rights. It’s unlikely that Sony’s interested in re-writing history–although the company surely felt the sting of Jobs’ infamous claim that Blu-ray is a “bag of hurt.” Oliver Stone could probably do something to help there, Sir Charles. We think it’s only sporting to help Sony out, and we’d like to invite you to help. Everyone kno
