Filmmaker David Fincher is in talks to reunite with screenwriter Aaron Sorkin to direct his Steve Jobs film biopic.

The as-yet-untitled movie will be based on Walter Isaacson's book about the Apple co-founder, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Fincher and Sorkin previously worked together on the 2010 Academy Award-winning film The Social Network, which centred on founder Mark Zuckerberg's college years.

It won't be the first Jobs biopic to hit Hollywood - Ashton Kutcher portrayed the technology innovator in last year's (13) Jobs.
