    Aaron Sorkin Offered Steve Jobs Biopic

    Posted: 29 Nov 2011 04:57 AM PST

    A few weeks ago, it was announced that Sony got the rights to make a movie out of Walter Isaacson's official biography on Steve Jobs. The latest news on the Steve Jobs biopic is that Aaron Sorkin, the scriptwriter who wrote the award-winning The Social Network is being offered the project.

    Sorkin is reportedly very interested in the project and "strongly considering" the project. Sorkin revealed that he is still thinking about the project and considering a lot of factors. He said the movie is going to be big and acknowledges – quite humbly – that the movie will be an awesome one regardless of the writer who eventually bags the project.

    Sorkin's optimism about how successful and great the proposed Jobs biopic will be is quite justified. In just six days after the release of "Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography", more than 379,000 copies of the book were sold – and that's just in the United States.

    Sorkin is a great choice as the scriptwriter for the Jobs. He was instrumental in the success of The Social Network, which would spiritually be in the same vein as Jobs' movie – a biopic about a man deeply involved in technology. But more than that, Sorkin does have a personal connection with Jobs. Sorkin has actually spoken with Jobs a number of times and at one point he was supposed to write a script for Jobs' wildly successfully 3D animation outfit, Pixar.

    Whatever happens to the project, it is almost sure that it is going to be one of the most hotly anticipated movies to be release in the future.


    Tarsem To Direct “Killing On Carnival Row”

    Posted: 25 Nov 2011 05:36 AM PST

    Tarsem Singh, who is known for his fantastical visuals, is preparing to ready his next project,  Killing on Carnival Row. This is going to be Singh's new project after his new take on Snow White, Mirror Mirror.

    Killing on Carnival Row is a fantasy movie with the script written by Travis Beacham. The script was bought about six years ago by the producing tandem of Arnold and Anne Kopelson. In fact, Killing on Carnival Row is Beacham's first sold script. He will go on to write the scripts for the Clash of The Titans remake, Guillermo del Toro's much anticipated Pacific Rim, the planned remake of Black Hole and the reimagined 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.

    Killing on Carnival Row is a dark fantasy thriller set in a city called Burgue. One side of the city is populated by seal-like creatures, while the other side is Carnival Row, which is a ghetto that houses the disnfranchised winged fairies. The movie deals with the investigation into a murder and an unknown antagonist who is killing the residents of Carnival Row one by one.

    Singh's commitment to Killing on Carnival Row, which is expected to be released on June 2012, is definite proof that the director is pushing his output to quite a prolific level. Previously, it took him years to put a movie out  — The Cell in 2000 and then The Fall in 2006. He's pushing more movies now though. Aside from Mirror, Mirror, he is also coming out with a 3D Greek mythology movie. Singh himself has indicated that he wants to make one movie a year.
