Natalie Portman looks set to join him according to a new report, a good sign that Jobs is still happening after Sony Pictures recently decided to drop the project. However, it quickly found a home at Universal Pictures.
It was recently revealed that Seth Rogen is in talks to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, and Jessica Chastain was previously mentioned as being in the running. The site doesn’t mention who Portman will play in the movie, but there has been talk of Steve Jobs’ daughter playing a large role in this biopic.
Portman has been busy working on her feature directorial debut A Tale of Love and Darkness, and is currently shooting Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. She’ll next be seen in Jane Got A Gun.
The movie is based on Walter Isaacson’s biography Steve Jobs, and Sorkin has previously revealed that the movie will be broken up into three lengthy scenes, each of which will take place backstage before the launch of famous Apple products. These are said to be the Mac, NeXT and, of course, the iPod.
