'The Social Network' screenwriter to adapt Jobs biography for Sony's biopic

Aaron Sorkin will adapt Walter Isaacson's bestselling biography of Steve Jobs for the new movie

Sony Pictures has named Aaron Sorkin as the screenwriter for its upcoming biopic based on Walter Isaacson's bestselling Steve Jobs biography.

Sorkin earned an Oscar for his adaptation of Ben Mezrich's 'The Accidental Billionaires', which he turned into 'The Social Network', a movie about the founding of Facebook.

Variety reports that the film's producers will be Scott Rudin, Mark Gordon and Guymon Cassidy.

Sony's movie shouldn't be confused with the independent biopic about starring Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs, which is also set to be released this year. On Monday, the Two and a Half Men star was spotted wearing Jobs' trademark outfit on his way to the film set.
