Long lost Steve Jobs interview to be making its way to theaters soon?

The once lost footage of Steve Jobs' 70 minute Triumph of the Nerds interview have been found in London, restored and enhanced, and is soon to be making its way to the big screen.

After Jobs died, Sen went looking for the interview because he thought it would be interesting to watch. He dropped Cringely a line telling him of his find and suggested that perhaps Cringely could put it on his technology blog I Cringely as a "gift to the world."

"He didn't see any commercial value in it," Cringely said. "I have three kids I have to put through college, so I thought maybe we could sell it."

Cringely sent Landmark Theatres co-owner Mark Cuban an email late one night to see whether there would be any interest in screening it on Landmark screens. Less than five minutes later, Cuban fired back that he was game.

The film will be titled Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview and will debut on November 16. This Paul Sen film has not yet been rated, but it is hyped as "best TV interview Steve Jobs ever gave", so don't let the opportunity to check it out pass you by.

Yeah, they do. But you know, Apple has made billions based on people willing to buy their products, so why shouldn't someone make some money on people willing to pay to watch this? I don't personally find it interesting enough to pay movie prices (plus baby sitting fees) but to each their own.
The funny thing is that in the end, Apple will make some more money on this when it comes to iTunes. :-)

I get that Jobs was pretty important, he was able to take a lot of other peoples ideas and make them marketable, but a movie? Just as dumb an idea as the facebook movie. Let the man rest people.

IF you think the Facebook movie was stupid, you either never saw it or work at McDonalds and are not happy with where you are in life. It's okay though, you're still alive, you have time to change things...

That's sick, I don't understand how people could feel good about themselves always tryin to make money off Steve Jobs's death. Basically it's like, O well he died..now how can I make money off of this..
