Sorkin to adapt Jobs bio by Aspen Institute CEO

LOS ANGELES – Aaron Sorkin is going from Facebook to Apple.

Sony Pictures officials say the Oscar-winning writer will write a screenplay based on the Steve Jobs biography written by Aspen Institute CEO Walter Isaacson.

Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal says Sorkin will make the film about the late Apple founder “everything that Jobs himself was: Captivating, entertaining and polarizing.”



Sorkin won the adapted screenplay Academy Award for 2010’s “The Social Network.” The 50-year-old writer was nominated in the same category for 2011’s “Moneyball.”

His other credits include “Charlie Wilson’s War” and “A Few Good Men.” He also created TV’s “The West Wing.”



Actor Ashton Kutcher is set to play Jobs in a separate project.
