We have dueling Snow White movies hitting theaters this year, so why not dueling Steve Jobs biopics? Award-winning writer Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, The West Wing) has confirmed that he will adapt Walter Isaacson's best-selling biography of the late Apple CEO/founder for Sony.
This isn't the first time Sorkin has adapted a best-selling book. Last year, he co-wrote the Oscar-nominated Moneyball and the year before that, won the Academy Award for best adapted screenplay for The Social Network.
"There is no working writer in Hollywood today who is more capable of capturing such an extraordinary life for the screen than Aaron Sorkin; in his hands, we're confident that the film will be everything that Jobs himself was: captivating, entertaining and polarizing," Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal said.
There's no word on casting for this biopic, though indie company Five Star Institute's version has Ashton Kutcher portraying Jobs for their film. Magnolia recently released a documentary titled Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview.
Is there room for two Jobs biopics? And who should play him in Sony's version?
