Steve Jobs is directed by Academy Award winner Danny Boyle, because David Fincher couldn’t be bothered  and written by Academy Award winner Aaron Sorkin, working from Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography of the Apple co-founder.

Michael Fassbender plays Steve Jobs ( because Christian bale quit ), the founder of Apple, with Academy Award®winning actress Kate Winslet starring as Joanna Hoffman, former marketing chief of Macintosh. Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple, is played by Seth Rogen ( which is why Christian bale quit ), and Jeff Daniels stars as former Apple CEO John Sculley. The film also stars Katherine Waterston Michael Stuhlbarg as Andy Hertzfeld, one of the original members of the Apple Macintosh development team.

Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs Promoting the NeXT

With the exception of some spy photos from production on-location in California, we’ve yet to get a good look at Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs. But now we have one glimpse of the actor in the role in the form of a vintage promotional poster that has him promoting Apple’s NeXT line of computers.

This poster surfaced online, likely from another on-location set.

fassbenderJobs

Now, I can´t say Fassbender looks anything like Steve Jobs. In this poster he looks pretty much like Michael Fassbender.

I’ve taken a huge dump on this film a couple of times. See below links.

They had Christian Bale until they cast Seth Rogen. And that made Bale say ; ” Fuck this shit “.  I’m not even really inclined to watch this film, but Steve Jobs really deserves better that that steaming pile of shit that came out starring Charlie Sheen’s replacement .

Steve Jobs is directed by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) and written by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, “The West Wing”). Set backstage at three iconic product launches, beginning with the Mac in 1984, moving through the NeXT in 1997 and ending in 1997 with the unveiling of the iPod, the film aims to take audiences behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter, Steve Jobs (Michael Fassbender). The film also stars Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Michael Stuhlbarg, Katherine Waterston and more. Universal Pictures releases the film on October 9th this fall.

Natalie Portman Joins Steve Jobs Biopic

So first Christian Bale quit because of Seth Rogen. Then Sony quit because of Seth Rogen. Then Universal studios took over the film when they heard they could do it without Seth Rogen.Now Deadline reports that Oscar-winner Natalie Portman has boarded the film.

The deadline article makes no claims as to who the actress is playing, but its a safe bet that she will play the Apple head honcho’s daughter, Lisa Bennan-Jobs (I cant be bothered getting a picture of the ho). Steve Jobs initially denied his paternity of Lisa ( who wouldn’t, have you seen that bitch ), all the while naming one of Apple’s earliest computers–the Apple Lisa–after her. Who cares right?

Portman recently completed her feature directorial debut A Tale of Love and Darkness and starring in the western Jane Got a Gun. She is also expected to reprise her role as Jane Foster in 2017′s Thor: Ragnarok. Because that is what fans of Thor want. More fucking Jane Foster……..

Based on Walter Isaacson’s 2011 biography “Steve Jobs,” Universal’s currently untitled Jobs movie will be written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle, while Scott Rudin, Mark Gordon and Guymon Casady produce.

Steve Jobs biopic is NOT being made by Sony. Maybe Apple should make it, and then remake it every other year or so

steve_jobs

The high-profile Steve Jobs movie has been put into turnaround by Sony Pictures, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The movie, which was being produced by Scott Rudin, Mark Gordon andGuymon Casady, was to be directed by Danny Boyle from a script by Aaron Sorkin. Michael Fassbender is attached to play the Apple co-founder.

Sony has several movies already in production for 2015 and wanted the film to shoot later. Also, Fassbender has commitments for Fox’s X-Men: Apocalypse in the spring. Sony declined to comment.

Sources also say that Annapurna Pictures, the production and financing shingle run by Megan Ellison, was to be involved as a partner on the feature project and had backed out. But an Annapurna insider says the company was never involved.

Despite that, producers were still in the midst of casting the project and had made an offer to Scarlett Johansson for a part. Seth Rogen was being eyed to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak ( which i still maintain is the reason Christian Bale quit )

Michael Fassbender is Sonys THIRD choice to play Steve Jobs in the Aaron Sorkin scripted biopic

With Christian Bale saying ” FUCK this project”  as soon as Seth Rogen was in talks to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak., Sony has moved quickly to find the man to portray the late Apple founder Steve Jobs.

Michael Fassbender is in early talks to play “Jobs” in the the Sony biopic that Danny Boyle is directing.

cropped-razzbendercenturion1.jpg

Based on Walter Isaacson’s biography “Steve Jobs,” the real-life drama is directed by Danny Boyle and written by Aaron Sorkin. Scott Rudin will produce along with Mark Gordon and Guymon Casady.

Sorkin has publicly said the movie will be divided into three long scenes, each taking place backstage before one of Apple’s famous product launches.

“The first one being the Mac,” he told the Daily Beast. “The second one being NeXT, after he had left Apple. And the third one being the iPod.”

“It’s a little like writing about the Beatles,” he added. “There are so many people out there that know him and revere him.”

Leonardo DiCaprio had been circling the role but eventually passed to take time off from acting. David Fincher had also been in talks at one point to direct.

Sony acquired rights following the Apple mogul’s death in 2011.

Thats the damn truth. They had a winning thing going. Aaron Sorkin writing it, Danny Boyle directing, and Bale playing the lead.  Then they fucked it up by casting Seth Rogen as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.

Christian Bale to play Steve Jobs

christian-bale-pulls-an-american-psycho

Christian Bale will play the late Apple Computer co-founder Steve Jobs in a biopic based on Walter Isaacson’s biography from director Danny Boyle. This has been confirmed by screenwriter Aaron Sorkin via Bloomberg.

“We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that’s Chris Bale,” Sorkin said, “He didn’t have to audition. Well, there was a meeting.”

“He has more words to say in this movie than most people have in three movies combined,” Sorkin said. “There isn’t a scene or a frame that he’s not in. So it’s an extremely difficult part and he is gonna crush it.”

Bale was initially courted for the part back when David Fincher was attached to helm, and made himself available recently after Leonardo DiCaprio dropped out of the role in order to film The Revenant and take time off from acting.

This could be a great “little” film. You have the trifecta here. Great actor, great director, and great writer. There has to be some serious drug abuse going on for this to go wrong. And lets face it. Steve Jobs deserves this team…..
