George Clooney is up for the lead role in a biopic about the Apple co-founder who died in October at the age of 56.
The other actor who battles for the role in the film produced by Sony Pictures is Noah Wyle.
Filming for this production will start next year, reports Now magazine.
After Steve Jobs’ death, Sony acquired the rights for screening his authorized biography written by Walter Isaacson.
Sony hopes that Aaron Sorkin will write the screenplay for the biopic about Steve Jobs.
This year, Aaron Sorkin won the screenplay Oscar for The Social Network.
The competition between George Clooney and Noah Wyle could be tough, especially since the latter played Steve Jobs in the 1999 TV documentary Pirates of Silicon Valley.
Noah Wyle met Steve Jobs when the tech genius invited him to the Macintosh – Macworld Expo conference in 1999, and the two had dinner together afterwards.
On the other hand, George Clooney and Noah Wyle co-stared in the ER series.
