Variety says that Danny Boyle will direct the film and Scott Rudin will produce along with Mark Gordon and Guymon Casady.
Sorkin previously revealed that the movie would be divided into three scenes that take place backstage before three Apple product launches.
“The first one being the Mac,” he said. “The second one being NeXT, after he had left Apple. And the third one being the iPod."
"It’s a little like writing about the Beatles," notes Sorkin. "There are so many people out there that know him and revere him."
Director David Fincher had previously been in talks to direct the movie; however, those apparently faltered due to Fincher's aggressive demands for compensation and control of the project.
