There have been rumors floating around that Aaron Sorkin, of West Wing and Social Network fame, had been approached by Sony to write its Steve Jobs biopic. In a press release issued yesterday, it was officially announced that Sorkin will definitely be working on the project.
Sorkin will adapt Steve Jobs, the biography written by Walter Isaacson, for the big screen. Given his track record, this promises to be truly, truly great. At least, it will definitely be better than the one starring Ashton Kutcher.
So far, there are no more details: we don’t know how long the writing process will take, when it will be filmed, or any other juicy snippets. But we do know it should be good.
