Renowned screenwriter Aaron Sorkin has revealed that Sony has hired the services of Steve Wozniak for the upcoming film about Steve Jobs.
According to Sorkin, whose screenplay for “The Social Network” won him an Oscar, Wozniak will work for Sony Pictures for the Steve Jobs biopic.
According to Reuters, “He (Sorkin) said that Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has been hired by the film studio as a ‘tutor’ on all the technical aspects of computers and on Jobs himself.”
Just last Tuesday, Sony Pictures revealed that the screenwriter will be adapting the in-depth autobiography written by Walter Isaacson on Steve Jobs. Last year, Sony was revealed to have won the movie rights to the book.
The biography titled simply as “Steve Jobs” is the only biography authorized by the Apple cofounder. Isaacson wrote it based on interviews with Jobs and with people who know Jobs.
Meanwhile, Sorkin told Reuters that the Steve Jobs movie will not be a straight biography because “it’s very difficult to shake the cradle-to-grave structure of a biography.”
