Walter Isaacson's Steve Jobs biography just hit the shelves this past week, but Sony Pictures is already moving forward on the feature adaptation of the book. Word has it that Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) is now being courted to write the screenplay.
An insider at The LA Times' 24 Frames claims that Sorkin is considering the project but has yet to make any final decisions. On the one hand, character-driven dramas based around intelligent, complex figures like Jobs are certainly in Sorkin's wheelhouse, but a project like this also runs the risk of retreading Silicon Valley ground already covered in The Social Network. Right now, it's hard to say what will become of Sorkin's involvement, but a pair of Academy Award-winning hands probably wouldn't hurt.
