'Steve Jobs' Gets Fall 2015 Release Date

Steve Jobs biopic gets release date

Universal's Steve Jobs, a biopic of the late Apple cofounder has traveled quite the road on its way to the big screen. After going through multiple directors and leading men, the project finally took shape late last year, with Danny Boyle (127 Hours) calling the shots and Michael Fassbender donning the black turtleneck as the film's subject. With all the main players officially on board, the film recently entered production, putting its troubled past behind.

With a script by Oscar-winner Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network), award-winning Boyle sitting in the director's chair, and an Academy Award nominated leading man, many assumed that Universal would position the project as one of its awards contenders when it was ready to be unveiled. That hypothesis has turned out to be true, and interested moviegoers will be able to see the final product sooner rather than later.

Jeff Sneider of The Wrap was the one who broke the news, tweeting out that Steve Jobs is currently scheduled for release in October of this year (which is prime Oscar season in the film industry).
