Will Natalie Portman In Steve Jobs Biopic Get The Role

One of the major roles can get Natalie Portman in Steve Jobs biopic. Deadline reports that famous movie star is in talks to join the cast of Universal’s Steve Jobs biopic.

Natalie Portman has starred in roles in different films including V for Vendetta, Marvel’s recent Thor movies ,and Black Swan. Character details were not revealed, but it is expected to be a major role. Should a deal get done, the Oscar winner’s casting would mark another positive reversal of fortune for the Danny Boyle-helmed project. Deadline revealed last week that it had been put in turnaround by Sony Pictures, to the shock of many in the industry. Universal picked it up Monday.

The biopic is based on the Walter Isaacson Steve Jobs ‘s biography. The script is written by Aaron Sorkin and the film will be produced by Scott Rudin, Christian Colson, Guymon Casady and Mark Gordon. The biopic cast is still not full. And now the movie will be run by Universal Studios, as it was dropped by Sony Pictures last week. One of the reason was that the Jobs film has suffered a number of setbacks. Both director David Fincher and Bale have declined to take place after being attached. And finally Sony dropped the project after two years in development.

One rumors source suggest that Portman’s role could play the role of Lisa Brennan, daughter of Steve Jobs. It would be reasonable to expect that Natalie’s role in the biopic should be a large one, considering that Portman has starred in many popular films.

It obvious that Portman is too old for the Lisa role. But she could play Apple’s VP or PR, Katie Cotton’s role. This woman at all Apple events was attached to Steve Jobs’ side. Starring Natalie Portman in Steve Jobs biopic would be a huge get for the movie. A number of male superstars such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Michael Fassbender, Seth Rogen have been rumored to join the project, but Natalie Portman is one of the first actresses in talks to get role in the movie.

Seth Rogen Will Play Woz In Jobs Biopic Filmed by Sony

Seth Rogen as Woz in Jobs biopic from Sony , is written by Aaron Sorkin, directing by Danny Boyle, the Variety reported.

The film is based on Walter Isaacson’s biography on Steve Jobs. And it will be divided into three long scenes. For Seth Rogen will be huge task to bring in special comedic relief.

Christian Bale will portray Steve Jobs in biopic. Before Bale was set to play this role the actor Leonardo DiCaprio was invited to take the role of the popular Apple co-founder. Thus he refused to play Steve Jobs.

Steve Wozniak was the co-founded Apple together with Steve Jobs. He was the engineer behind the Apple I and also Apple II computers and you can read the interview with Woz. During that time his work made Apple a household name in the 1970s. Woz discharged from Apple company in 1987. But he still takes place at Apple events and in the headlines with his commentary on the state of technologies . That’s why the Sony company, the studio producing the movie, had previously hired Wozniak to consult.

The role of Seth Rogen is an exciting one. Regarded generally for his comedic characters, we have to admit being a little bit anxious as to the guidance in which he will take the role. We hope that Sorkin will not focus on Woz’s funny side. Because he will lose the clear engineering genius that now represents.

In the 2013 biopic release Steve Jobs was starring Ashton Kutcher. And Steve Wozniak’s character was played by actor Josh Gad. As for Seth Rogen, he has played in various roles in Knocked Up, Pineapple Express and Superbad.
