Description

The Steve Jobs biopic 'Jobs: Get Inspired' starring Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs just landed another big Hollywood star. Writer Aaron Sorkin will be adapting the biography of Jobs that the film is based on. When Jobs' biography hit bookshelves late last year it skyrocketed to the top of the New York Times bestseller list. According to Publishers Weekly it ranked #1 among best selling hardcover books with sales of over 2.2 million dollars. This won't be the first time Sorkin has taken on the life of a high-profile tech icon - he won an Academy Award in 2011 for Best Adapted Screenplay for his work on The Social Network. He also created the TV series The West Wing, Sports Night, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, and the upcoming HBO series The Newsroom. For the full story read Deadline.com http://www.deadline.com
