Ashton Kutcher is all set to play hippie-turned-entrepreneur Steve Jobs in a new biopic, aptly titled Jobs.
Meanwhile, there have been rumors that screenwriter Aaron Sorkin will be penning his own Steve Jobs script. Hollyscoop caught up with the Social Network and Moneyball writer to ask him about those rumors.
“I don’t know yet if I’m doing it,” Sorkin told Hollyscoop. He did confirm one thing, though: “It’s been offered to me.”
Aaron played coy, so I have a feeling something’s in the works. However, the movie that Aaron’s been approached about is completely separate from the Ashton movie.
Jobs is actually the second Steve Jobs biopic currently in development. Sony has the rights to Walter Isaacson’s book, Steve Jobs, and they’re the ones who have reportedly been courting Sorkin.
So, other than Steve Jobs and the Apple Empire, what other topic would Sorkin like to write a movie about?
“That’s a big question,” Sorkin told Hollyscoop. “There are a lot of things that are interesting to me right now. Steve Jobs is interesting to me right now. But I don’t know, sometimes I just open up the newspaper and something on page 23 strikes me.”
Sorkin could make any topic interesting. You could ask him to write a movie about what I had for breakfast this morning, and it would probably be nominated for something.
And aside from (maybe) the Steve Jobs biopic, are there any other projects we can expect in the near future?
Aaron told Hollyscoop: “You never know.”
