Steve Jobs started at Sony where David Fincher was initially attached to direct and Christian Bale was considered to play Jobs. Boyle replaced Fincher, and Fassbender was cast as Jobs after Bale exited the project. Sorkin's script, based on Walter Isaacson's biography, focuses on three presentations Jobs gave that defined his life and his role at Apple.

Universal picked up the film after Sony put it in turnaround. The film is set to hit theaters on Oct. 9.
