A deal has been reached to bring the film about the Apple co-founder — which Danny Boyle is to direct from a script by Aaron Sorkin — to Universal, a studio spokesman confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter on Monday. According to sources, the project had been shopped with a price tag of more than $30 million.
Currently, Michael Fassbender is set to play Steve Jobs; however, the film has already gone through several prospective lead actors including Christian Bale.
The movie is based on Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs and is being produced by Scott Rudin, Mark Gordon, and Guymon Casady.
