Aaron Sorkin Will Be Screenwriter For Steve Jobs biopic


Sony Pictures confirmed that Aaron Sorkin will be the screenwriter for the film adaptation of the Steve Jobs’ biography by Walter Isaacson. Last month Sorkin, who is well-known for his work on The Social Network, A Few Good Men and The West Wing, noted that he was “strongly considering” the offer to work on the project. Amy Pascal, Sony Pictures Co-Chairman, commented on the announcement:

“Steve Jobs’ story is unique: he was one of the most revolutionary and influential men not just of our time but of all time. There is no writer working in Hollywood today who is more capable of capturing such an extraordinary life for the screen than Aaron Sorkin; in his hands, we’re confident that the film will be everything that Jobs himself was: captivating, entertaining, and polarizing.”

Casting for the upcoming movie has yet to be determined; however rumors have suggested that Noah Wyle and George Clooney are likely candidates for the role of Steve Jobs

This film adaptation is a completely separate project from a film about Jobs where Aston Kutcher stars in the lead role. Last week Kutcher was seen wearing Jobs’ trademark outfit when going to the movie set, where filming is currently taking place.
