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.
Film’s producer Mark Hulme of Five Star Institute spoke to Neowin about the film.
Joshua Michael Stern is known for directing the comedy Swing Vote. Why was he picked to direct Jobs?
We wanted a director who could not only buy into and execute our vision for the film but could also work within our framework as an independent film company. After several meetings with Josh we were confident we had found both a brilliant and collaborative director. As an experienced writer and director Josh has a masterful understanding of the process of film making.
