“The West Wing” scribe Aaron Sorkin announced late last night that he will be writing a screenplay based on the life of Steve Jobs, and the best part is that Ashton Kutcher is nowhere near the project.
The other best part is that the screenplay is to be based on the best-selling biography of Steve Jobs written by Walter Issacson. You may have seen literally every person ever reading that book in the last few months and for good reason; it was one of the best selling books of the last year perhaps due in part to the unfortunate death of Jobs at the age of 53 after a long battle with cancer.
Aaron Sorkin recently won an Oscar for his adapted screenplay for “The Social Network” and was nominated this year for his work on the script of “Moneyball.” Sorkin’s involvement was announced at a press conference by Sony Entertainment in Los Angeles late Tuesday evening.
Death and Taxes has recently been reported on Ashton Kutcher’s also-ran biopic of Steve Jobs, set to be released in 2013. We can only imagine that movie has a lot of fart jokes mixed in amongst shots of iPads.
