The year was 1960 and Time magazine was among the many to publicly gulp at the cost of Stanley Kubrick's gladiator epic, "Spartacus." Its price tag of $12 million made it not only the most expensive movie ever made, the magazine noted, but equaled "the average annual revenue of the Roman Republic at the time of Spartacus." Well, coin has always been relative; ticket prices for Christians vs. lions games in the Colosseum presumably didn't cost spectators an arm and a leg in those days, either.

Aaron Sorkin once declined an offer from Steve Jobs to write a movie for animation house Pixar, saying he couldn't pen dialogue for inanimate objects. Now, however, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of "The Social Network" will aim to help bring the life of the legendary tech icon to the screen in a film for Sony Pictures that will reunite him with his "Social Network" producer Scott Rudin. "Steve Jobs" will be based on the bestselling biography written by former Time magazine Managing Editor Walter Isaacson.

Tell me if this sounds familiar: Despite all advice to the contrary, the big-time movie star uses his clout to get a film made that otherwise would be stashed deep in the catacombs of development hell.
