According to new reports, George Clooney is the prized actor up for the role of Steve Jobs!

Two days after his unfortunate death, Sony nabbed the rights to Walter Isaacson's biography of the Apple genius.

And as we previously reported, the longtime friend of Steve's, Aaron Sorkin, is the "top contender" to turn the bio into a film!

We would like for both of these to be true. Thank youuu!

Aaron Sorkin To Write A Steve Jobs Biopic??? Yes Please!

aaron sorkin to write steve jobs movie

Take the job, Aaron! You KNOW Steve would approve!

We've just learned that Sony is moving forward with a Steve Jobs biopic based on Walter Isaacson's book…and Aaron Sorkin is the frontrunner to write the script!

No decisions have been made yet, but we have a feeling that Aaron will take on the project, as he should!

All you need to do is watch The Social Network to see that Aaron is more than capable of tackling this type of subject matter.

We'll look forward to hearing some confirmation on this soon!

What do U think? Is Aaron Sorkin the right guy to write the Steve Jobs movie???
