We reported a while back that David Fincher and Christian Bale may work on a a new Steve Jobs movie, but that may no longer be the case. According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Sony is reportedly in talks with director Danny Boyle to direct the upcoming Steve Jobs movie based on the Walter Isaacson biography and Leonardo DiCaprio may portray Steve Jobs in the film.
Netflix the online media streaming service is now offering to stream “Jobs”, the biographic movie based on Steve Jobs, founder and visionary behind the Cupertino tech giant Apple Inc., and starring Ashton Kutcher, who portrayed the character of Steve Jobs for the silver screen. The film will be available for free for Netflix customers who are using the company’s unlimited streaming plan.
The life and times of Steve Jobs is a pretty interesting story, we’re still very much enthused by the prospect of the upcoming Sony Pictures movie, based heavily upon the Isaacson biog. No less, of course, because scriptwriter Aaron Sorkin, of The Social Network fame, has a credible track record for turning tech stories into Hollywood blockbusters, and as the search for an actor to play Jobs continues, Christian Bale has emerged as a front-runner.
