Aaron Sorkin To Write Screenplay For Steve Jobs Biopic
Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) will pen the script for a film telling the life story of late Apple visionary Steve Jobs, Sony Pictures announced Tuesday. The film will be based on the biography written by Walter Isaacson, published shortly after Jobs' death, from cancer, in October 2011.
Sorkin, who won several Emmy Awards for his work on TV's The West Wing and was most recently nominated for an Oscar for his Moneyball script, is considered to be one of the best screenwriters working today — if not the best. Sony Pictures' Amy Pascal expressed unbridled enthusiasm about Sorkin's involvement in the Jobs project. "There is no writer working in Hollywood today who is more capable of capturing such an extraordinary life for the screen than Aaron Sorkin," Pascal said in a statement. "In his hands, we're confident that the film will be everything that Jobs himself was: captivating, entertaining and polarizing."
This film is not to be confused with an indie picture, titled Jobs, in which Ashton Kutcher plays the tech genius.
