Aaron Sorkin, fresh from winning an Oscar for writing “The Social Network,” will move from covering Facebook to Apple. Sony has hired Sorkin to turn Walter Isaacson’s “Steve Jobs” biography into a feature film, Variety reports. Sony acquired the movie rights to Isaacson’s biography a couple weeks before it was released in October.

Another Jobs biopic is scheduled to begin filming this month. This film, with the working title “Jobs,” stars Ashton Kutcher and covers the years 1971-2000. “Jobs” is slated to be released in the fourth quarter of this year.
