Everything we know about the upcoming Steve Jobs movie

Susie Ochs | Nov. 5, 2014
We're going to need popcorn just watching this thing get made.

Who's been cast?
Christian Bale was offered the part--this was even confirmed by Aaron Sorkin himself--but he changed his mind before inking a deal, according to The Hollywood Reporter. A report from Variety claimed that Seth Rogen was set to play Steve Wozniak, but The Hollywood Reporter clarifies that while he's in talks to play Woz, the deal isn't finalized just yet.

The list of actors who were reportedly considered to play Jobs includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Bradley Cooper. Once two different Batmen have turned you down, maybe go for the villians--Jim Carrey, anyone? The Verge has some great ideas--Meryl FTW.

Who else is attached?
Danny Boyle is slated to direct. The Oscar-winning English director is known for Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, and the opening ceremonies of the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

David Fincher (who directed The Social Network) was once attached to direct, but Sony reportedly found him too demanding. Scott Rudin, who produced The Social Network, is one of the producers.

When does it come out?
That's still to be determined--obviously, they can't start shooting it without a cast. Filming was supposed to take place this winter for a fast turnaround. Maybe they should go with puppets (warning: NSFW language in that video). Puppets fall in line.

What else do you want to know? Sound off in the comments, and we'll keep updating this, in lieu of writing article after article until this movie is finally done.
