Sony Officially Announce Steve Jobs Biopic From Aaron Sorkin But Don't Name A Director

No Ashton Kutchers allowed.

Sony are (now officially) having Aaron Sorkin write the screenplay for Steve Jobs, an adaptation of Walter Isaacson‘s hugely best-selling biopic of the Apple magnate. There’s no more information – no clue on who will star, or who will direct. I’ll take some shots in the dark, though.

Sorkin himself is looking to get some directing credits, but the plans are that he’ll start with The Politician, adapted from Andrew Young’s book about John Edwards. Could Jobs be his sophomore effort? Seems a little unlikely that Sony would wait that long.

Of course, many will be hoping for a Social Network reteam and the return of David Fincher, though I think I’d prefer Rob Reiner, director of previous Sorkin pictures For a Few Good Men and The American President take the reins. I can’t imagine Reiner would be too enamoured of a lot of Jobs’ attitudes, and that could make for some high drama.

Now. Who’s up for a little wager. There’s a hunch I have that says they’re going to cast Tom Cruise as Jobs. Anybody want to take that bet? It could even be a three-way Good Men reunion.

More news in due course.
