Sony is reportedly courting 'Social Network' writer Aaron Sorkin to write the script for a Steve Jobs movie, according to the L.A. Times.

Sony is moving forward with a Steve Jobs movie based on Isaacson's book. And one of the writers being courted by producers to pen his story, according to a person who was briefed on the project but not authorized to speak about it publicly, is Aaron Sorkin, Hollywood's chronicler-in-chief of the complicated visionary.

Sorkin wrote "Moneyball" and "Social Network". If he signs on to the project he would be working with "Saving Private Ryan" producer Mark Gordon.

Interestingly, Jobs tried to convince Sorkin to write a film for Pixar once; however, Sorkin declined saying he didn't "think [he could] make inanimate objects talk."

STEVE: Once you make them talk they won't be inanimate.

AARON: The truth is I don't know how to tell those stories. I have a young kid who loves Pixar movies and she'll turn cartwheels if I tell her I'm writing one and I don't want to disappoint her by writing the only bad movie in the history of Pixar.
