After tackling the career of Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, The Social Network’s Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin is set to pen a movie about the life of late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. The film is just one of several Jobs biopics in the works, and this one will be based on his bestselling, authorized biography. The Social Network producer Scott Rudin is overseeing the project.
Ashton Kutcher is already set to play Steve Jobs in a rival biopic, simply titled Jobs. It will begin shooting soon, and hit theatres next year.
