(Newser) – Still stuck in Guatemala on the heels of a nervous breakdown, John McAfee has at least one thing going for him: a movie deal. The anti-virus pioneer has sold the rights to his life story to Impact Future Media, a Montreal-based company that's now seeking partners and investors for the film, says the Hollywood Reporter. McAfee "trusts that we will honor his life story in an honest and truthful manner," says company co-founder Brian Fitzgerald, who cut the deal with McAfee. The project's current title: Running in the Background: The True Story of John McAfee.
