Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin is reportedly in talks to adapt Michael Lewis' book Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt for the big screen.

If Sorkin signs on to the project, it will reunite him with his The Social Network producer Scott Rudin, according to Variety.com.

The Newsroom writer also adapted Lewis' Moneyball for the screen, with Brad Pitt portraying real-life baseball boss Billy Beane. The film picked up six Academy Awards nominations, including a Best Screenplay nod for Sorkin.
