After a "maybe" and a "strongly considering" in late 2011, Aaron Sorkin has committed to write Sony's Steve Jobs biopic, adapting Walter Isaacson's authorized, celebrated, not-at-all-skimpy biography. Scott Rudin (The Social Network, Moneyball, No Country for Old Men) is producing, awards are being very preemptively readied, and the Kutcher-as-Jobs indie pic is already being forgotten. (Sorry. That's mean. But so is Ashton.)
