Chelsea journalist gets movie deal

Sean Silcoff has been pinching himself all week.


The Globe and Mail reporter still can’t believe that his book about Blackberry’s spectacular rise and fall is getting a big screen release, with the likes of Hollywood actors Jay Baruchel and Glenn Howerton playing the film’s stars.


“I have had a pinch-me kind of week,” explained Silcoff, who co-authored the book “Losing the Signal: The Untold Story Behind the Extraordinary Rise and Spectacular Fall of Blackberry” with fellow Globe reporter Jacquie McNish. “It’s really interesting to see how much it resonates with everyone else. There’s a lot of excitement about it.”
