Lean In: The Movie

Sheryl Sandberg's mantra for success

Is Sheryl Sandberg's rousing call to action for women in the workplace set to become a major motion picture? Yes, according to reports.

When it hit shelves last year, Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead became the new bible for ambitious women, with the Facebook COO advocating that women 'lean in' to their careers instead of holding themselves back.

Last week, Sandberg became one of the world's youngest female billionaires so she's clearly doing something right.

Reports suggest that the film will portray a fictionalised version of Sandberg's story.

In 2010, Aaron Sorkin's The Social Network was a huge, Oscar-winning success so could we be looking at another blockbuster film about the phenomenon that is Facebook?

And more importantly, who will play Sheryl?

We're throwing Julia Louis Dreyfuss and Angelina Jolie in to the ring.
