Walk With Me: Sorkin Brought on Board Steve Jobs Bio Pic

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trade News | May 16, 2012 | Comments ()

All that is true except for Aaron Sorkin. Oh sure he dabbles in all that other stuff like show running, but what he's really known for is his writing. And he lied to you Liz Lemon, because when you're king, someone is always calling.

After crafting a screenplay that shifted "that movie about Facebook" into "one of the best films of the last few years", Sorkin has gotten the notice of the anonymous suits. Yeah people that care about good story have always known his name, but how much of that demographic really overlaps with the people who run studios anyway?

So Sony is trying to make a Steve Jobs biopic. And that's a different one from the Kutchner starring indie biography of the man. They paid a million bucks for the rights to the biography of Jobs written by Walter Isaacson, who between being former CEO of CNN also wrote biographies of Ben Franklin, Albert Einstein, and Henry Kissinger. And with that wikipedia search I'm suddenly more interested in Isaacson than Jobs, but then I'm a history nerd.
