Hollywood screenwriter Aaron Sorkin is going from Facebook to Apple.

Sony Pictures officials say the Oscar-winning writer will pen a screenplay based on the Steve Jobs biography.

Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal says Sorkin will make the film about the late Apple founder "everything that Jobs himself was: Captivating, entertaining and polarizing."

Sorkin won the adapted screenplay Academy Award for 2010's The Social Network. The 50-year-old writer was nominated in the same category for 2011's Moneyball.

His other credits include Charlie Wilson's War and A Few Good Men. He also created TV's The West Wing.

Actor Ashton Kutcher is set to play Jobs in a separate project.
