I would like to see a movie about the normal lives of Java programmers. You know, hot women, high-speed car chases, and explosions.

Larry David should play the Goz, clearly.




Also, Johnny Depp can play Bill Joy:

I'll work on a trailer.

In a world where an overweight, balding man named after infant poultry is revered as a god ...

Hi, all!

this is really a cool idea! now we just need a titlle! Its a good idea to cast Larry David in the role as the father Duke
and Johnny Depp in the role as Bill Joy but somewhere along the lone and if i dare too suggest it would be cool to have
Seth Rogen play the role as goz in his younger days.

I wish that hollywood would make more movies about computers and programming in general. If there only was
more movies like Tron, antitrust and the social network. Why can they do a remake of "real genius" ?

This is a truly terrible idea, about like a film staring the Edsel. But, as usual, this forum rocks.
The casting photos are great.

What about a Tucker?
What makes a good movie is a good story. Does Java have a good story? If it does, I have yet to hear it. Zuckerberg is what makes the Facebook movie interesting.

Tucker was the name of the con man that started the company. The movie was about good and evil.

The Social Network was about good and evil, arrogance and greed. Zuckerberg vs Winklevoss. While they did spend some effort on making the technical stuff correct (just a quick wget here....) the story is the conflict between the people.

Java is just a computer language, there are zillions of them. New ones are created every month. Most are born, used, and die without notice.
