Steve Wozniak, often referred to as ‘The Woz,” was essential to the formation of Apple, and was Steve Jobs’ primary business partners in the early days of the company. Apple likely would not exist as we know it today without him.
As such, it’s especially fitting that Sony Pictures has hired Wozniak as an advisor on the upcoming film based on Steve Jobs’ official biography. Reuters reports on comments made by Aaron Sorkin, the screenwriter for the film:
“I know so little about what I am going to write. I know what I am not going to write. It can’t be a straight ahead biography because it’s very difficult to shake the cradle-to-grave structure of a biography, ” Sorkin told reporters at a news conference for his upcoming HBO drama “The Newsroom.”
[…] He 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.
It’s also particularly interesting that Sorkin says the film will be more than a straight biography. It will be interesting to see what direction he takes the film in! Sorkin is well-known for his work on the film The Social Network, which revolves around the creation of Facebook.
