Steve Jobs is an upcoming biographical drama film based on the life of Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Jobs, starring Michael Fassbender in the title role.
The film is directed by Danny Boyle, produced by Scott Rudin, and based on a screenplay written by Aaron Sorkin. It will be released on October 9, 2015, four days after the anniversary of his death.
According to Universal’s press release, the film is “set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, the film takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter.”
The film’s first trailer was released on Sunday, May 17th:
MacDailyNews Take: Fingers crossed.
The whole “ending it in 1998” still seems strange. Is there going to be a sequel? After all, some of the most-world-changing stuff (OS X, iPod, iTunes Store, iPhone, iPad, etc.), not to mention one of the most tragic early deaths in history, happened after 1998.
