The story of antivirus pioneer–cum–blogging fugitive John McAfee could soon hit the big screen, with Warner Bros. reportedly having optioned the tale for a possible feature film. This isn't the first time McAfee has been approached about a movie based on his exploits. In December, he inked a deal for the rights to his story …
Evil scientists, viruses, murder, frame ups, zombie dogs, government conspiracies, dramatic escapes to freedom and amusing costumes.
It's Resident Evil meets Bourne Identity meets Master of Disguise.
Pure Oscar material right there.
Well its got to be more interesting than the facebook movie.
The musical tells the story of a newly engaged couple getting caught in a storm and coming to the home of a mad antivirus pioneer. I think this could become a cult movie on par with The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Pure Oscar The Grouch material.
"This story was brought to you by the letters B, U, L, L, S, H, I and T."
working title is: Harold and Kumar escape from Belize.
I checked Encyclopaedia Dramatic, but no one has made John a page yet!
Better make it as a cartoon, stone age or something.
but the guy is just a complete wanker and makes me come over all daily mail and in favour of the death penalty.
Sorry... had to double read that comment...... that sentence could have turned out all wrong and slightly disturbing.
So, this will be a comedy then?
... in the Southern United States which sums up J. McAfee: "nuttier than a Stuckey's Log."
...the pic on the top stories scroll. Looney Tunes it is!
Do we really want John McAfee representing the tech sector in popular culture?
.. he'll make a good leading man.. hiding by burying himself in the sand with cops and (possibly) K9? could be a very Will Ferrell classic.
buy getting people to slap him every time he's spotted. With a bit of luck he'll go into hiding, as long as they take away this clowns computer we need never hear of this wazzock again.
The more I read, the more I start to ponder whether McAfee is the reincarnation of Baron Munchausen.
I hope they find and convict whoever killed Mr Faull.
from all those Nazis still hiding bases in South America? And then marries Queen Kate.
...though I won't be in line to pay to see it. Maybe one day in a year or so when it's free somewhere - and I'm good and stoned - I'll spend a brain-dead evening with JM. It'll be fitting then.
