Aaron Sorkin confirmed to pen Sony's Steve Jobs biopic
Variety is confirming that Academy Award winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin has signed on with Sony Pictures to write the screenplay for a movie biography of the late Steve Jobs. Sorkin will adapt Walter Isaacson’s biography of Jobs titled Steve Jobs. Sony optioned the book before it dropped and immediately the studio had Sorkin in mind to pen the story.

Besides writing the script to "The Social Network," a movie about Facebook, Sorkin is known for writing "The West Wing", "Sports Night" and "Studio 60". Sorkin's project is the second movie about Jobs to get green lit (we love to use those fancy movie terms). As we told you the other day, Ashtonm Kutcher has started filming "Steve Jobs: Get Inspired" which is a low budget indie flick that deals with Jobs' early career from founding Apple to running Pixar. No one has been selected yet to portray Jobs for the Sony Pictures movie.source: Mashable
