Who better for the job?!

Aaron Sorkin exclusively told E! News back in November that Sony Pictures Entertainment wanted him to write the Steve Jobs biopic, and now we can confirm that the Oscar-winning Social Network scribe will be indeed be penning the film's screenplay.

Cochairman of Sony Pictures Amy Pascal said in a statement, "Steve Jobs' story is unique: he was one of the most revolutionary and influential men not just of our time but of all time. There is no writer working in Hollywood today who is more capable of capturing such an extraordinary life for the screen than Aaron Sorkin; in his hands, we're confident that the film will be everything that Jobs himself was: captivating, entertaining, and polarizing."

Steve Jobs is based on the best-selling biography of the legendary Apple cofounder by award-winning journalist Walter Isaacson. Ashton Kutcher stars in another biopic, Jobs, that's already in production.
