Sony Pictures Working to Acquire The Rights For Feature Film Based on Walter Isaacson’s Biography of Steve Jobs

Deadline reports that Sony Pictures is presently working to acquire the rights for feature film based on Walter Isaacson’s authorized biography of Steve Jobs.

I’ve just learned that Sony Pictures is making a hefty deal to acquire feature rights to Steve Jobs, the upcoming authorized biography by former CNN chairman and Time Magazine managing editor Walter Isaacson.

Deadline considers the studio to be a good match, having recently condensed another business book into the Oscar-nominated film The Social Network which dramatized the founding of Facebook.

There’s no word on when such a film might be targeted for release.
