Universal Pictures is wasting no time in getting this Steve Jobs biopic set for production. After obtaining the rights from Sony Pictures a few weeks ago, the Danny Boyle directed project looks to add a female lead to join the cast, which includes Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs and Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak There’s great news for all the Kate Winslet fans out there, as the Oscar wining actress is in negotiations to join the biopic as the lead.
The report comes from Variety, and should this casting become official it’ll be a major step forward for a project that had major problems putting a cast together. It would have been very interesting to have her and Leonardo DiCaprio together again for a script written by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network). DiCaprio eventually parted ways from the project, and a more than worthy replacement in Michael Fassbender will be playing Steve Jobs.
Should Kate Winslet officially sign on, the expectations will be enormous for a project that also involves the names above. Here’s to hoping all works out so we can finally see a Steve Jobs biopic done right.
