After trading barbs with Apple CEO Tim Cook over the upcoming biopic "Steve Jobs," screenwriter Aaron Sorkin is ready to bury the iHatchet.
"I think that Tim Cook and I probably both went a little too far," Sorkin told E! News on Saturday. "And I apologize to Tim Cook. I hope when he sees the movie, he enjoys it as much as I enjoy his products."
The Sorkin-Cook mini-battle began earlier this month, when Cook appeared on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" and discussed his opinion of the recent spate of movies about the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

"I think that a lot of people are trying to be opportunistic," Cook told Colbert. "I hate this -- it's not a great part of our world."
Sorkin fired back the following week during a press appearance for "Steve Jobs": "Tim Cook should really see the movie before he decides what it is ... [and] 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," he told The Hollywood Reporter.
It's unclear why Sorkin backpedaled, and Apple didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. Since the 2013 film "Jobs," Hollywood has produced two new Jobs-focused movies: a documentary and the Sorkin-written biopic in question, which will come to theaters October 9 in a limited initial release.
