Sony Pictures, which acquired the rights to Walter Isaacson's biography about Jobs, is said to also be interested in producing a movie about the executive. Sony is trying to get Aaron Sorkin, the man who created The West Wing and was a screenwriter for The Social Network to pen the script. As for the role of Steve Jobs in the Sony movie, the last we heard was that the role could be given to one of two ER alumni, George Clooney or Noah Wyle. Wyle has the advantage of having portrayed Jobs before in the made for T.V. "Pirates of Silicon Valley".
