Tech entrepreneurs think they are the new rock stars, and the likes of Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk are household names. Testament to this is the fact that a few tech leaders have already had their own biopics.

There is the good: David Fincher’s brilliant The Social Network, with Jesse Eisenberg playing Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg with just the right balance of smug self-entitlement against an underlying self-consciousness.

Then there is the bad: Danny Boyle’s wordy and directionless Steve Jobs biopic which can’t even be saved by Michael Fassbender’s portrayal of the difficult genius behind Apple’s golden era.

So, that got us thinking in the Techworld offices about who would play some other tech industry players on the big screen. From Amazon’s Jeff Bezos to Yahoo’s Marissa Mayer, here is our fantasy casting for the tech films that should probably never get made.
