The Kidd here...
A FEW GOOD MEN, THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT, THE WEST WING, SPORTS NIGHT, THE SOCIAL NETWORK, MONEYBALL, STUDIO 60 ON THE SUNSET STRIP, THE NEWSROOM... Aaron Sorkin's credits are astounding, and you know when you see his writing as touched a particular project, it's going to be worth your time to invest in watching it. You know the dialogue is going to be fresh. You know the characters are going to be quick and interesting. You know it's not going to be formulaic.
Well, now you can add STEVE JOBS to his stable, as Sony has announced the Oscar-winning screenwriter has been hired to adapt Water Isaacson's biography of the late face and co-founder of Apple. The book was constructed from Isaacson's time with Jobs, as he conducted more than 40 interviews over a two-year period with him, in addition to the numerous talks he had with family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues. It's not always a completely flattering portrayal of Jobs, as it shows both his highs and lows, the good and the bad of the man who became so beloved by the cult of Mac.
This is definitely something I'm looking forward to seeing...
The big questions now though are who will play Jobs, and who could possibly direct?
I've got my money on Meryl Streep for the former.
