Aaron Sorkin On Writing

Next up in our Academy Awards series is Aaron Sorkin, who was recently nominated for having written “Molly’s Game.” This movie was nominated for Best Adapted Sceenplay. I’m a big fan of Aaron Sorkin, and especially of his film, “The Social Network.” It’s really a must watch. Aaron is also well known for having written “The West Wing,” “A Few Good Men,” and “Steve Jobs.”

This is a pretty short interview, but I think it has some great questions. Here are a few questions from the interview:

There always seems to be a lot of development drama when it comes to bringing your films to the screen. Steven Soderbergh was attached to Moneyball and dropped out. Steve Jobs went through a number of cast attachments and budget changes with Sony attached before the film moved to Universal. Why is this?”

Your films deal with power struggles. The industry has been rocked by sexual harassment allegations and purging itself of men who’ve been awful to a number of women. As a tale of female empowerment, how does Molly’s Game add to the conversation?”
