Aaron Sorkin was "scared" about directing 'The Trial of the Chicago 7' due to the calibre of the cast.

The 59-year-old screenwriter is helming just his second film and admits he was daunted at the thought of working with major screen stars on the Netflix project such as Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Michael Keaton among others.

Aaron explained: "It was scary directing 'Chicago 7'. I only have one movie under my belt, 'Molly's Game', which had three principal characters. This film has 11 stars, most of whom are leads in their own movies."
