Walter Isaacson, former managing editor of ‘Time’ magazine and former Chairman and CEO of CNN, is set to have his authorized biography of Steve Jobs, called ‘Steve Jobs: A Biography,’ released in late October.
Originally it was supposed to come out in November, but then Jobs died. Best not to let the body cool before you can make a dollar off of it, right?
Steve Jobs was fairly protective of his personal life. Despite that, Isaacson managed to get in contact with more than 100 people associated with him. These interviews included everyone from friends and family to colleagues and adversaries.
He was one of the few rockstars of the techno-world, so it’s fitting that he’s gonna get a movie made about him. The working title is simply ‘Steve Jobs’ and the rights to Isaacson’s book have been purchased by Sony Pictures. The same guys that made the Facebook movie. The Oscar-nominated Facebook movie.
Oh yeah, this will be interesting.
