Reuters reports on comments from Aaron Sorkin, the screen writer of the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic from Sony. Sorkin says that the film will not be much like the biography, and that while he knows what he is not going to put into the screenplay, he knows “so little about what [he is] going to write.”
“I know so little about what I am going to write. I know what I am not going to write. It can’t be a straight ahead biography because it’s very difficult to shake the cradle-to-grave structure of a biography, ” Sorkin told reporters at a news conference for his upcoming HBO drama “The Newsroom.”
Sorkin, also known as the writer behind the movie The Social Network, also said that he will move his full attention onto the Steve Jobs movie project late next month (June). Perhaps most interestingly, Reuters also reports that Sony has hired the Apple co-founder and long time friend of Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, as a “tutor” for the film. Wozniak will presumably provide excellent insight into the early years of Apple and Jobs.
