Universal Picks up Jobs Movie – Michael Fassbender to Play Jobs

As predicted, Universal Studios have picked up the Steve Jobs biopic that Sony Pictures dropped just days ago.

Sony apparently dropped the movie due to a schedule clash, with Fassbender being unable to shoot the movie at the time Sony wanted to. The film has already been written by Alan Sorkin, the same writer behind The Social Network, and is to be directed by Danny Boyle of Trainspotting and Slumdog Millionaire. 

The film is said to cover 3 different stages in Jobs’ career and life – the introduction of the Macintosh in 1984, his time at NeXT in the 80s/90s and the introduction of the iPod in 2001.

There’s no doubt Apple fans will be looking forward to the movie, but with such a great writer and director, along with Jobs’ colossal impact upon technology, this may just appeal to quite a few more people.
