Sony drops Steve Jobs biopic, leaving Aaron Sorkin-written film in limbo: report

Jeff Chiu/AP Sony reportedly dropped a biopic about late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. The heavily hyped Steve Jobs biopic will need a reboot. Sony dropped the high-profile film based on Walter Isaacson’s authoritative biography of the late Apple co-founder, Deadline.com first reported. Despite a script adapted by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, the untitled project had been plagued by casting and directing glitches. Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale both circled the role, but opted out, with Michael Fassbender being the most recent actor linked to playing Jobs. Debbie Egan-Chin/New York Daily News Actor Christian Bale dropped out of the project… Enlarge Michael Loccisano/Getty Images …as did fellow A-lister Leonardo Dicaprio… Enlarge Jeff Vespa/WireImage …while Michael Fassbender was also linked to the role. Enlarge Things didn’t go much smoother behind the camera as "Slumdog Millionaire" director Danny Boyle inherited the helm after original director David Fincher dropped out earlier this year. Sony had acquired the rights shortly after Jobs’ death in 2011 and fast-tracked the project — before the abrupt turnaround. Universal is now eying the Scott Rudin-produced film, according to Deadline. The movie is not to be confused with indie drama "Jobs," in which Ashton Kutcher played the computing icon. [...]

CHRISTIAN BALE CONFIRMED TO PORTRAY STEVE JOBS IN NEW BIOPIC

Actor Christian Bale 's role as Steve Jobs in director Danny Boyle's new biopic has been confirmed by the project's screenwriter.

The #DarkKnight  star became the frontrunner to portray the late Apple Computer co-founder in the film adaptation of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Walter Isaacson's bestselling biography after Leonardo DiCaprio dropped out of the project to make #TheRevenant

Aaron Sorkin, who has written the script for the film, has now confirmed Bale will step in for DiCaprio. 

He tells Bloomberg.com, "We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that's Chris Bale. He really is a phenomenal actor.... 

"He didn't have to audition. Well, there was a meeting. The role is an extremely difficult role. He has more words to say in this movie than most people have in three movies combined... So it's an extremely difficult part and he's going to crush it." 

Ashton Kutcher previously portrayed Jobs in the critically-mauled 2013 film #Jobs .

critique on poster: 

Overview:
My initial reaction to this poster was I really liked the concept of making Ashton Kutcher who's portraying Steve Jobs completely colorful and keeping the words simple and white. I feel like everything is present that should be. The overall aesthetics feels right for me for this poster. The style seems very appropriate for this posters purpose.

Analysis:
The layout seems right in theory however I can't explain why it really bothers me the placement of the lettering, but I'm a person who really likes symmetrical things. There isn't too much content so the flow seems fine. I think this a very usable design, the text tone however doesn't stand out to me and I'm guessing that was on purpose by the artist because they wanted to show Jobs as being this creative and colorful person and that the movie is based solely around him. Since the movie is based on his life I would say this design works well for their stated goal.

Interpretation:
I think this poster speaks to a more creative audience, an audience that is already interested in the life of Steve Jobs. I don't think the average person without knowledge of him (but how many people are there that don't know about him really? maybe its better to say who don't care... yes you andriod users) would really understand this or be motivated to see it based off this. The graphic element of making him the colorful creative center of everything is very in line with the movie and it's goals of it's story line. I'm really not a fan of just how much the name of the movie fades in to nothingness for me. I would've preferred it not be on his face, and I would've really liked if Ashton Kutcher's name wasn't the first thing you see in text. I think it is effectively appealing for the context it will live in because it tells a story without having to say a single word. 

Evaluation:

I believe this design fulfills it's purpose because it tells the story of Job's as the creative center. Given all my answers above I really do believe this design works for them and their project.
