George Clooney to play Steve Jobs?

George Clooney is reportedly in the running to play late Apple CEO Steve Jobs in an upcoming film.

He will go up against former ER co-star Noah Wyle for the role.

The biopic, made by Sony Pictures, is due to start filming next year and rumour has it that Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin (of The Social Network fame) will write the script.

Sony is keeping tight-lipped on the details, but we do know that the film will be based on Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs, and will chart the life of the Apple co-founder.

The reaction to the film is set to be huge, with critics already predicting it will be a box office hit.
