Having tackled Zuckerberg and the Winkelvoss twins, The Social Network script writer Aaron Sorkin has been offered tech-land's most sought after scripting gig: writing the Steve Jobs movie.
Sorkin told E! Online, "Sony has asked me to write the movie and it's something I'm strongly considering,
"Right now I'm just in the thinking-about-it stages. It's a really big movie and it's going to be a great movie no matter who writes it."
Not sure that's necessarily true, Aaron, but carry on:
"He was a great entrepreneur, he was a great artist, a great thinker. He's probably inspired [my 11-year-old daughter] Roxy more than he's inspired me … she plays with all his toys."
After Steve Jobs' death earlier this year, the movie will be controversial no matter who pens the screenplay - but at least Sorkin actually knew Jobs personally, which gives us just a tad more confidence in the project.
Meanwhile the Hollywood rumour mill continues to throw up potential candidates to play Jobs himself. Current front-runners include George Clooney, Noah Wyle and some people who didn't play major characters in ER.
