The book revolves around the two founders of Google, Sergey Brin and Larry Page, and the meteoric rise of their search engine that has earned them both billions of dollars. It was said that the site's $20 billion in ad revenue was more than all of the major TV networks' ad revenue combined.
London told the site that the film will focus on how Brin and Page tried to hang on to their idealistic viewpoints as the site rose to become a global phenomenon. Here's a brief excerpt from the article.
"It's about these two young guys who created a company that changed the world, and how the world in turn changed them. 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."
No writer or director have been attached to the project at this point and we'll be sure to keep you posted with any further news on this upcoming film as soon as we have more information.
