Sources tell Entertainment Weekly that former CNN chairman and Time magazine managing editor Walter Isaacson’s upcoming biography of late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs will be acquired by Sony to be adapted into a feature film, as initially reported by Deadline.

The much-anticipated book recently had its publication date moved up a month (to Oct. 24) following Jobs’ passing on Wednesday, and now, the studio that successfully translated The Social Network and Moneyball to the big screen is poised to work its magic on Steve Jobs. Producer Mark Gordon (Source Code) will reportedly produce in his new partnership with Management 360.
