Software Guru at Center of Murder Case Sells TV Rights to Story NY Post

John McAfee, the anti-virus software icon who started McAfee Associates and is now at the center of an international murder case, has sold the television rights to his life story, reports the New York Post.

McAfee sold the rights to his own publicist, the piece adds. Brian Fitzgerald, who is a co-founder of Canadian television production company Impact Future Media and is also McAfee's official spokesman, said his company bought the rights.

The working title of a movie based on McAfee's life is "Running in the Background: The True Story of John McAfee,” Fitzgerald said.

McAfee is wanted by Belize authorities for questioning in the death of another U.S. expatriate and McAfee's neighbor, Gregory Faull, in November. He's currently fighting extradition after being arrested in Guatemala last week.
