A word on Aaron Sorkin
Aaron Sorkin has been in demand ever since he did the screenplay for David Fincher’s The Social Network. His smart, fast paced screenplay is said to be even better than the biography that it was based on. Sorkin’s past screenplay works also include A Few Good Men, Moneyball with Brad Pitt, and the TV The West Wing, amongst others. With a biopic about Steve Jobs, Sorkin could find himself with another Oscar!
The Steve Jobs Biography.
The Steve Jobs biography was the highest selling book for 2011 on Amazon.com. It’s based on more than forty interviews with Jobs conducted over two years, as well as interviews of Jobs’s family and coworkers. The biography focuses mostly on his professional life, but considering how much drama went on at Apple during Jobs time there…this isn’t a problem.
We’re looking forward to seeing how Sorkin will adapt the Steve Jobs biography, are you?
