Aaron Sorkin has signed on to write a biopic based on the life of late Apple founder Steve Jobs. The film will be based on Walter Isaacson's best-selling biography Steve Jobs, which was released shortly after the technology icon's death in October.

Sorkin is, of course, no stranger to telling the story of an enigmatic tech visionary. The writer won a best adapted screenplay Oscar in 2011 for The Social Network, in which he dramatized the founding of Facebook and delved into the mind of Mark Zuckerberg. Unlike The Social Network, which was adapted from Ben Mezrich's book The Accidental Billionaires, the biography that is the basis of the film was officially sanctioned by Jobs himself.
