Macrumors has posted that Sony is trying to pair up with Aaron Sorkin, the Writer behind The Social Network, to produce Steve Jobs movie based on Walter Isaacson's book
Sony is moving forward with a Steve Jobs movie based on Isaacson's book. And one of the writers being courted by producers to pen his story, according to a person who was briefed on the project but not authorized to speak about it publicly, is Aaron Sorkin, Hollywood's chronicler-in-chief of the complicated visionary.
The "Moneyball" and "Social Network" writer was said by the person to be considering the prospect but had made no decisions. Sony and a Sorkin representative declined to comment on the writer's potential involvement.
Steve once asked Aaron to write a movie for Pixar, Sorkin declined because he didn't "think he could make inanimate objects talk."
STEVE: Once you make them talk they won’t be inanimate.
ME: The truth is I don’t know how to tell those stories. I have a young kid who loves Pixar movies and she’ll turn cartwheels if I tell her I’m writing one and I don’t want to disappoint her by writing the only bad movie in the history of Pixar.
Steve Jobs' biography is headed toward the top of Amazon's list top-selling book for 2011, currently ranked #12
