Google: The Movie - Search giant set for Hollywood

Internet behemoth to follow Facebook into the movie theatre

We've already got David Fincher's The Social Network ready to hit cinemas later this year, now movie-going tech fans can prepare the popcorn for a flick about the lives of Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page.

According to Deadline Hollywood, the movie will be based on the book "Googled: The end of the world as we know it" and will tell the story of the founders' journey from Stanford University PhD students to dotcom billionaires.

The film will be produced by Michael London (Sideways) who told Deadline Hollywood that "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?"

No actors have been cast in the roles yet. Who do you think should play Larry and Sergey? Let us know on Twitter and Facebook.
