Woz Hired as Advisor for Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs Movie

Just a couple of days ago, we reported that Aaron Sorkin had officially agreed to script for the Sony’s upcoming film adaptation of Walter Isaacson’s authorized biography of Steve Jobs. Sorkin is well know for his work on The West Wing, The Social Network, Moneyball, and A Few Good Men. The cast for the film has not been determined yet, but rumors have suggested that George Clooney and Noah Wyle may be the top choices for the role of Jobs.

Now, Reuters reports that Sorkin held an interview with reporters and said he was still looking for something in Jobs’ life to hang the movie on.

Sorkin noted that “The Social Network” saw the Facebook story through the lens of an acrimonious lawsuit that pitted CEO Mark Zuckerberg against his Harvard friends over the creation of the social media network.

“Drama is tension versus obstacle. Someone wants something, something is standing in their way of getting it. They want the money, they want the girl, they want to get to Philadelphia – doesn’t matter … And I need to find that event and I will. I just don’t know what it is,” Sorkin said.

According to Sorkin, the movie won’t be straight from the biography. He also disclosed that Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has been hired as a consultant by Sony Pictures to advise the filmmakers on the technical aspects of computers and about Jobs himself.

Sounds like the movie will actually be good unlike the movie Ashton Kutcher’s starring in.
