Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs Biopic Finds New Home at Universal Pictures

0

Director Danny Boyle has found a new home for his Steve Jobs biopic at Universal Pictures after the project was dropped by Sony executives.

The film, which has suffered a number of casting changes in recent months following the exit of both Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale as the late Apple boss, was unexpectedly dumped by Sony Pictures bosses last week, leaving the production in limbo.

However, the movie rights have since been picked up by Universal for more than $30 million, allowing Boyle to press ahead with plans to shoot in January, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The project is based on Walter Isaacson’s celebrated Steve Jobs biography, which has been adapted for the big screen by Aaron Sorkin, and will now feature X-Men: First Class star Michael Fassbender as Jobs.

The film has been having such a rough time getting off the ground that we have to ask: when it comes out, will you still want to see it?
