VIRGIN boss Richard Branson's autobiography LOSING MY VIRGINITY is to be turned into a movie.

Los Angeles-based production financing firm CRYSTAL SKY has bought the film rights to Branson's story with the intention of making a $50 million (GBP31.3 million) biopic.

The film will go into production next year (04) in England and Japan.

Meanwhile, Branson makes his own movie debut by playing a hot air balloon operator in the upcoming AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS film, starring Jackie Chan and Kathy Bates.
