Finally Google Gets a Film Treatment from Groundswell Productions

Earlier this year, it was the founders of Facebook who had a game changing geek poised by telling their story on a movie screen. This time its Michael London's "Groundswell Productions" who recently teamed with Producer John Morris and acquired the movie rights of the book called "Googled: The End of the World as we Know it" by Ken Auletta.

As per the sources in their production house, they will be using the book as the blueprint for their feature film that will basically tell a story of Sergey Brin and Larry Page, the founders ofGoogle Inc. It is their credibility and the fast rise of their web business that made them billionaires.

The book was published by Penguin Publishers. Ken Auletta is also a media columnist with the New York Times. As per the book the income worth of $20 Billion only came from the Ads that were published in the search engine driven octopus. The CEO of Google Inc. already predicted to Ken Auletta that Google will be the only company that will become world's first $100 Billion media company.

The story of the Facebook founder has been already told in the upcoming movie "The Social Network" which is directed by David Fincher. The movie revolves around a group of friends who basically squabbed in success.

Google was founded by the duo when they were students in Stanford completing their Ph. D. They wanted to establish a better search engine. They started Google with their own principles. They believed, "You can make money without doing evil and You can be serious without a suit."

In a press media, London said that, the movie will only focus on how they tried to built Google with their idealism as they turned Google into global phenomenon. The only challenge for London and his team is to find a grip on the success story that will be made for compelling screen drama.
