My god. I don’t know what I was expecting from a Sorkin trailer, if not Sorkin. So here’s the trailer for his directorial debut, which probably sets the record for most longwinded shit ever crammed into 2:46. Regarding the actual movie, I’m sort of intrigued. I guess?
Both Marvel Studios and DC Films are in talks with the master of the walk-and-talk, Aaron Sorkin, about a potential movie. I’m down with this, since as I suffer capes-fatigue, odd, interesting talents like this will be necessary to keep me buzzing about these bombastic bullshit tentpoles.
YEAH SO I don’t think of Christian Bale when I think of people who are perfect to play Steve Jobs. No worry. The motherfucker knows a thing or two about reinventing himself for a role.
Remember that Steve Jobs flick that Aaron Sorkin was writing the script for? Don’t worry. I completely forgot about it too. You know, the sheer awesomeness that was Ashton Ketchup’s movie about Jobs vaporizing even the idea that there could be another movie about the same topic. But low and fucking behold! The Sorkin joint still exists. Fincher is directing. And get this! Christian Bale may play Jobs.
Aaron Sorkin is the master of dialogue and the wizard of wit, and with such distinctions comes luxurious gigs, such as his latest one. Being tasked with writing the Steve Jobs biopic, Sorkin compares it to writing about The Beatles. Oh Aaron, you’re not star struck, are you? Let me touch your hair. It is gorgeous.
Aaron Sorkin. Love you, duder. The fact that you are writing a Steve Jobs biopic for Sony has me far more pumped than whatever that Aston Kutcher debacle will end up being.
If you like baseball, you know about Moneyball, the book by Michael Lewis about Billy Beane. There’s been a movie based on the book in the works for a while now, and our own Patrick Cooper gave me the heads-up on the trailer. I fucking love it. It’s got the Sexiest Man Alive, on-base percentages, and a little bit of the old human drama.
