We do wonder most of the time that Apple couldn’t be started without the two brains behind it: Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak and so as Aaron Sorkin can’t tell Jobs’ story without the Woz. Sorkin, an Oscar-winning screenwriter has hired Apple co-founder as an adviser as he turns Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography “Steve Jobs” into a screenplay for a movie project that Sony Pictures announced on Tuesday.

The Woz, who stepped away from the company in 1987 but remained close to Jobs, will serve as a “tutor” on the company’s computers and Jobs himself, according to a Reuters report. “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,” Sorkin told reporters at a news conference.
