Steve Jobs, the name itself inspires perfection. All his products talked of it, loud and clear. His life inspired a generation. Now Sony Pictures pays tribute to this phenomenon. Just two days after Steve Jobs’ demise, Sony Pictures bought the copyrights to Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs titled “Steve Jobs” and will make it into a motion picture.
Sony Pictures have approached Aaron Sorkin to write the script of the movie. Going by his pen, Sorkin has scripted “The Social Network,” where he did a fantastic job tracing Facebook and he also has “Moneyball” to his credit, which was made for a niche audience. Going by his record, Sorkin seems to be the best choice to pen the script for Steve Job’s biopic.
The most interesting piece of news that came after the death of Steve Jobs is that he wanted Sorkin to write the screenplay for “Chronicling the founding of Pixar.” But the deal never took off because Sorkin was not comfortable with the idea of making inanimate objects talk. The idea was shelved.
Though Jobs and Sorkin never met, they had their telephonic conversations. Jobs made courtesy calls to Sorkin appreciating his work. Though Sorkin is a fan of Apple products and does all his writing on a Mac, he himself confesses that he never had a chance to tell jobs how much he admired him and loved his products.
All said and done, it remains to be seen whether Sorkin will be doing the screenplay or not. But we know one thing for sure, Steve Jobs would have approved of Sorkin writing the screenplay of the movie based on his life.
