Aaron Sorkin has hit back at current Apple CEO Tim Cook who recently called filmmakers doing projects about the late company founder Steve Jobs as “opportunistic”.
Speaking with THR in London, the famed screen writer claims he and those working on the soon to be released, Danny Boyle-directed “Steve Jobs” film actually took pay cuts to get it made:
“Nobody did this movie to get rich. Secondly, Tim Cook should really see the movie before he decides what it is. Third, if you’ve got a factory full of children in China assembling phones for 17 cents an hour you’ve got a lot of nerve calling someone else opportunistic.”
Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet and Seth Rogan star in the film which has scored strong reviews on the Fall film festival circuit and opens in the United States on October 9th.
