Tech geeks everywhere are flexing their popularity muscles with the founders of Google the latest to earn a feature film treatment. Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page look set to have their life stories adapted into a feature film.
The book “Googled: The End of the World As We Know it” was written by Ken Auletta and published last fall by Penguin, and tells the story of the quick rise to fame and fortune of Brin, Page and Google. The book will be used as an outline by Groundswell Productions and producer John Morris who teamed to acquire the movie rights.
The founders of Facebook will have their story told in the upcoming movie “The Social Network,” starting the trend in telling the story behind the founding of some of America’s biggest tech and social networking companies.
