'Social Network' Writer Considering Steve Jobs Movie

Award winning writer Aaron Sorkin is considering creating a movie to honor one of the greatest tech. innovators of all time.

E! Online reported that while speaking at the P.S. Arts Express Yourself 2011 event in California, Sorkin explained that Sony Pictures had asked him to write a movie about Steve Jobs.

With the recent passing of Steve Jobs, new enthusiasm is rising from people who want to know and understand a man that has forever changed their lives.

It is now being revealed that Jobs was a product of an adoptive family. This came to light after a 60 Minutes interview with Walter Isaacson, the man Jobs selected to write his biography. He noted that Job’s adoptive parents Paul and Clara Jobs instilled in Jobs that he was specifically selected and a special boy.

This chance allowed Jobs the opportunity to create and build one of the largest companies in the world, worth an estimated $380 billion, and touch countless lives.

Now Aaron Sorkin has teamed up with Sony to bring the Steve Jobs to the big screen. "It's something I'm strongly considering," he told the crowd. "Right now I'm just in the thinking-about-it stages."

The movie would likely be based on Walter Isaacson's biography "Steve Jobs," released in late October. Sony bought the rights to the book a few weeks before its publication.
