Confirmed: Universal Studios Takes Control of Steve Jobs Movie


It is also confirmed that actor Michael Fassbender will finally be in charge of playing Steve Jobs

After several weeks of uncertainty about the future of Steve Jobs’ film, Universal Studios has just made it official that they will take control of the rights to the feature film. Last week we could see how Sony finally gave up its attempt to bring the genius’s life to the big screen and Universal appeared as very interested in picking up its baton. Finally, the handover has become official and the Steve Jobs movie goes on.

Apparently, Universal would have paid $ 30 million to get the rights to the film, which were previously bought by Sony to film the official biography of Walter Isaacson. In addition, along with director Danny Boyle and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, it is confirmed that the actor Michael Fassbender will finally be in charge of giving life to the character of Jobs.

With the confirmation from Fassbender, we are a little closer to seeing the Steve Jobs biopic in our theaters. Since it was confirmed that Sony was going to be in charge of the film’s production, actors of the stature of Leonardo DiCaprio or Christian Bale they have been the ones intended to occupy the title role, but both rejected the position.

Another of the actors that seems to be practically confirmed is Seth Rogen, who will play Steve Wozniak, the inseparable friend of Jobs during the first years after the founding of Apple. As for the rest of the actors, we still do not have confirmed names, although we do know that Jobs’ daughter, Lisa, will play a very important role in the film, as Sorkin himself revealed.

The film will focus on the moments that pass before 3 important keynotes: Macintosh, NeXT and iPod

Regarding the plot, Sorkin has revealed that the actor who plays Steve Jobs will carry the greatest weight of the film and that it will focus on narrating the moments that preceded 3 important keynotes: that of the original Macintosh, NeXT and iPod. As for NeXT, we still do not know what Sorkin could be referring to, because at that stage no proper keynote is known.

As we see in Appleinsider, there is still no specific date for the start of the film’s shooting, although sources close to it have revealed that it could take place in spring 2015. If all goes according to plan, the film could reach our theaters at the end of ****. Do you have any gain from seeing the Steve Jobs biopic?
