New Steve Jobs film updates!




Sony Pictures has dropped the upcoming Aaron Sorkin penned Steve Jobs biopic while the movie is still in pre-production, BUT it has just been picked up by another big player – Universal.


The movie is still in the middle of casting, with names such as Christian Bale previously being thrown around before it was confirmed that the man himself, Steve Jobs, will be played by Michael Fassbender, Seth Rogen will play Steve Wozniak, with Jessica Chastain also attached. Currently, Natalie Portman is also rumored to be taking a part.


Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) will be at the helm directing and the film will focus on three distinct events in Apple’s history, based on Walter Isaacson’s biography and with the consulting help of Steve Wozniak himself.


There was no insight as to why Sony dropped the film, however those in the know advise that this swap of studios will not hinder the production from following the path it was already set on by the creative heads of the film.


There is no public production or release date as of yet.
