Aaron Sorkin 'Strongly Considering' Taking On Steve Jobs Biopic: [ send to a friend ]
After winning an Oscar for his adapted screenplay of 'The Social Network' and the founding of Facebook, Aaron Sorkin may be tackling the life of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs next.
"Sony has asked me to write the movie and it's something I'm strongly considering," Sorkin tells E!.
"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."
Sony already acquired the rights to Walter Isaacson's authorized biography two days after Jobs passed away due to pancreatic cancer at the age of 56.
Sorkin is said to be their top choice to bring the words to life.
Isaacson's book, which covers Jobs' life from childhood, is based on interviews conducted with Jobs and his colleagues over the course of two years.
Sorkin and Jobs had a mutual admiration for each other and, after the innovator's passing, the filmmaker revealed Jobs had once asked him to write a Pixar movie.
