Long time director of The Simpsons, and the man who called the shots on the big screen version, David Mirkin has signed on to write, direct and produce the life story of Virgin tycoon, Richard Branson.

According to Variety, the film will be based on Branson's own memoirs, Losing My Virginity, where he chronicled his rags to riches life, and accumulated an estimated worth of almost $4 billion.

We're sure there will be some hot air balloon-type action going on as well. Mirkin also directed the fun Jennifer Love-Hewitt flick, Heartbreakers.
