Alongside the fate of “Newsroom,” it was also revealed that Sorkin has completed a script adaptation of Steve Jobs’s biography by Walter Isaacson. The full-length feature is still untitled, and promises to differ greatly from Ashton Kutcher’s incarnation.

Aaron Benjamin Sorkin was born into a Jewish family in Scarsdale, N.Y., the youngest of three. Sorkin broke into Hollywood and subsequent critical acclaim after he sold the rights to his yet-to-debut play, “A Few Good Men” in 1988.
