The Steve Jobs book is still on Amazon’s best-selling list in the number 2 spot and has been in the top since the day it came out.
Since the book is doing so well, how do you think a Steve Jobs movie will do? And what about The Social Network’s Aaron Sorkin doing the screenplay?
Sorkin won an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for The Social Network, so it would seem obvious he’s the right man for the job.
At a recent event Sorkin said, “Sony has asked me to write the movie and it’s something I’m strongly considering.”
Sony has acquired the rights to Walter Isaacson‘s authorized biography of Jobs and Aaron Sorkin is their first choice to pen the film. Sorkin shared that he is still in the “thinking about it stage” and says a Steve Jobs Movie will be huge and great no matter who writes it.
Steve Jobs passed away in October of pancreatic cancer at the age of 56.
Now the question is, who should play Steve Jobs? I’ve heard George Clooney’s name thrown out there.
Sorkin would be the perfect writer for the job (no pun intended), but Clooney looks nothing like Steve Job. I also can’t picture him with the attitude. I think it should be someone new.
