Aaron Sorkin (Studio 60, The West Wing) and Steven Spielberg (Amazing Stories, Tiny Toons) are teaming up to make three movies together in the not-too-distant future. Sorkin will be writing scripts, having sworn off television for the time being, and Spielberg will be producing and directing, you know, like he does.
The first of these films will be The Trial of the Chicago 7, which is the story of Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden, and the others who were arrested for their demonstrations at the Chicago Democratic Convention in 1968. We can only imagine the dialogue as Sorkin writes for hippies. Sign us up...for fun!
