As plans take shape for Aaron Sorkin's Steve Jobs biopic, Reuters reports that Woz has been drafted in to act as an advisor on Jobs and the "technical aspects of computers".


With both Sorkin and Woz on board, the film certainly promises to be definitive—though we'll have to wait and see if it delivers on that. Elsewhere in the Reuters report are snippets from Sorkin about the direction the movie will take:

"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...

"Drama is tension versus obstacle. Someone wants something, something is standing in their way of getting it. They want the money, they want the girl, they want to get to Philadelphia – doesn't matter … And I need to find that event and I will. I just don't know what it is."
