Sony Pays Big Money for Steve Jobs Movie

Steve Jobs.

Two days after Apple co-founder Steve Jobs succumbed to pancreatic cancer, Sony has made a big play for an intended Jobs biopic. Deadline reports that the studio has agreed to pay $1 million against $3 million to acquire the movie rights to Steve Jobs, the authorized biography written by Walter Isaacson that was recently bumped up a month to an October 24 release date. The big question, of course, is who in Hollywood could play Jobs. (The non-question, of course, is what he would wear.) [Deadline]
