Aaron Sorkin - Social Network's Sorkin Asked To Write Jobs Movie
The Social Network screenwriter Aaron Sorkin has been asked to write a biopic of late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.
The Oscar-winning filmmaker has confirmed a movie about Jobs is in the pipeline following the death of the technology mogul last month (Oct11) after a lengthy cancer battle.
Now Sorkin has revealed he's considering taking on the film after he was approached by bosses at Sony, who have bought the rights to Walter Isaacson's authorised biography of Jobs.
Sorkin tells E! Online, "Sony has asked me to write the movie and it's something I'm strongly considering.
"Right now I'm just in the thinking-about-it stages. It's a really big movie and it's going to be a great movie no matter who writes it.
"He was a great entrepreneur, he was a great artist, a great thinker. He's probably inspired (my 11-year-old daughter) Roxy more than he's inspired me. She plays with all his toys."
