Aaron Sorkin Shares His Thoughts On Steve Jobs Biopic


Aaron Sorkin, who created the Oscar-winning scenario for “The Social Network”, was recently confirmed by Sony Pictures as a screenwriter for upcoming film based on the biography of Steve Jobs.

Reuters reported that in an interview with reporters Sorkin said that he was still looking for some event in Jobs’ life to hang the film on.

He noted that in "The Social Network" the Facebook story was seen through the lens of an acrimonious legal dispute between CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his friends from Harvard over the Facebook creation. Sorkin said:

"Drama is tension versus obstacle. Someone wants something, something is standing in their way of getting it. They want the money, they want the girl, they want to get to Philadelphia - doesn't matter ... And I need to find that event and I will. I just don't know what it is".

He noted the movie won’t be a straight biography because its "cradle-to-grave structure" is difficult to overcome.

He also said that Steve Wozniak has been hired by Sony Pictures as a consultant to advise on the technical aspects and on Jobs himself.
