The Real Steve Jobs Movie 2015

It took a while, but finally Aaron Sorkin’s screenplay for a Steve Jobs biopic based on the best-selling biography by Walter Isaacson has been made into an actual movie. Walter Isaacson, whose authorised Jobs biography is a great read that packs in the whole story of Jobs’ life and is essentially the definitive volume on the subject, is credited as a co-writer of the new Jobs movie. Although how much writing he is doing on the film itself is unclear – it may simply reflect the debt that the script owes to his book.

We hope Isaacson plays a significant part in the production. Aaron Sorkin, known for movies and TV shows like: The Social Network, The Newsroom, A Few Good Men and the ever award winning The West Wing, is a highly creative and imaginative writer. But the involvement of Jobs’ biographer would help ensure that this time around Steve’s televised story will be a movie that is gripping but also stays true to the source.

Michael Fassbender is to play Steve Jobs…
Perhaps best known for his role of Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto from X-Men (the more recent movies with the younger Magneto), although he has an impressive CV across a variety of roles, Fassbender looks like a good choice to play the charasmatic Jobs. Fassbender’s work includes 12 Years A Slave (for which he was nominated for an Oscar), Inglorious Basterds, Prometheus and Shame. Fassbender also starred as Carl Jung in A Dangerous Method so he clearly has practice playing intensely intelligent characters.

The Real Steve Jobs Movie 2015 is scheduled to hit the theaters around October this year. Universal Studios released a first look of what to expect in the form of a short trailer that offers glimpses of stars like Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslett, Jeff Daniels, and Seth Rogen who will be starring in this new Steve Jobs biopic.
