It looks like screenwriter Aaron Sorkin has decided to call a truce between himself and Apple CEO Tim Cook. Sorkin, who wrote the script for the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, has now apologized for his recent harsh statements, has now apologized for his recent statements he made in response to Cook's critical words over the film.
In a recent appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Cook admitted he had not seen "Steve Jobs" but said, "I think a lot of people are trying to be opportunistic and I hate this. It's not a great part of our world." Sorkin then struck back at a recent press junket to promote the movie, stating that he and many others in the cast and crew took pay cuts so the movie could get made. He also said that Cook should see the film first and then said that Cook had "a lot of nerve calling someone else opportunistic" when he claims Apple had "a factory full of children in China assembling phones for 17 cents an hour."
EOnline caught up with Sorkin this weekend for another interview, and now he seems to regret going after Cook:
"You know what, I think that Tim Cook and I probably both went a little too far," he told E! News exclusively. "And I apologize to Tim Cook. I hope when he sees the movie, he enjoys it as much as I enjoy his products."
"Steve Jobs", which stars actor Michael Fassbender in the title role, will open in theaters in New York and Los Angeles on October 9, and will open in more theaters in the U.S. later in the month.
