The biopic will chart Steve's life until his death from pancreatic cancer aged 56.
George (50), is apparently up against 40-year-old Noah Wyle for the role.
Sony is reportedly hoping that Oscar-winning Social Network screenwriter Aaron Sorkin will write the script.
The competition between George and Noah may prove tough however, as Noah has played Steve Jobs before, in the 1999 cult classic Pirates of Silicon Valley.
Noah was even invited by Steve to that year's Macworld Expo, after which he took the actor out for dinner.
George and Noah both played doctors in the classic television series ER, which picked up 23 Emmy Awards over its 1994-2009 run.
