Getting the biopic of Steve Jobs together, with a script by Aaron Sorkin, is turning out to be a lot more difficult than you would imagine. There’s been a bit of a revolving door of directors and actors in the main role, and recently it also jumped studios from Sony to Universal.
However they’re still struggling to get it to work, with Danny Boyle currently set to direct, with Michael Fassbender as Jobs, Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak and Jeff Daniels as John Sculley.
There’s also been a few issues sorting out the female lead, with Jessica Chastain and Natalie Portman reportedly already having passed on the role. However Variety reports that the latest actress being sought for the part is Kate Winslet, although it’s not clear how close she is to signing on.
They’ll be hoping they can get it sorted soon though, as it’s known that Boyle wants to go into production as soon as possible.
