Hollywood is now trying the geeky thing. We will soon seeing the tale of Facebook and its founder Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network slated to hit theaters in October, it now appears the movie rights to a book about Google and its founders, Segrey Brin and Larry Page, have been acquired by a production company looking to bring the search giant’s story to the big screen.
Deadline is reporting that Michael London’s Groundswell Productions and producer John Morris have together purchased the movie rights for Googled: The End of the World As We Know it. The 400-page Google (Google) narrative, published in late 2009, was authored by The New Yorker columnist Ken Auletta.
“The heart of the movie is their wonderful edict, don’t be evil. At a certain point in the evolution of a company so big and powerful, there are a million challenges to that mandate. Can you stay true to principles like that as you become as rich and powerful as that company has become? The intention is to be sympathetic to Sergey and Larry, and hopefully the film will be as interesting as the company they created,” London iterated in an interview with Deadline.
Though the movie plans are still early-stage. London and Morris plan to fund the project and use Auletta’s book as a foundation for the film adaption. But we cant say that there will be movie on google, think they are raising curiosity
