Natalie Portman in Talks to Join Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs Biopic

0

Natalie Portman is reportedly in talks to join the new Steve Jobs biopic which will be directed by Danny Boyle, with Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin taking charge of the screenplay.

Portman’s potential role has yet to be revealed, but it is expected to be a major part in the film, according to Deadline.com.

The movie, which is based on Walter Isaacson’s biography of the late Apple boss, has faced a number of road blocks in recent months after both Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale reportedly dropped out of the project.

Shame star Michael Fassbender is now believed to be the favorite to take over the role of Jobs.

In addition, bosses at Sony Pictures unexpectedly dumped the film from their slate last week, but executives at Universal Pictures picked up the production on Monday.

Portman’s No Strings Attached co-star Ashton Kutcher previously played the technology mogul in 2013 biopic Jobs.
