Universal Studio has confirmed that it's picked up the Steve Jobs movie from Sony Pictures after the studio put the high profile film into turnaround last week, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

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.

I wonder if they would make a movie of the creator of Samsung Phone. The script would go something like; Former VP of Apple wants to create their own phone, walla..., let's start with copying the IPhone 3G, then the plot thickens when they find the open source shared OS android. The moment gets exciting when Google purchase the right to Android and Samsung simply adds minor gimmicky features to attract consumers.

Lol, agreed on another note. This movie is starting to turn sour. I think Sorkin is an idiot. He is not the right leader for this film
