There's Yet Another Steve Jobs Movie Coming

By Gary Cutlack on at

There's another Steve Job film on the way, you'll be pleased or perhaps a little sad to learn. This one, though, won't be starring a Hollywood nob as Steve, it'll star Steve as Steve. It is, as they say in the business, "a documentary."

Documentaries are like boring films, usually without explosions or tits. They tend to feature a man interviewing people and asking them what they think of a topic, in an attempt to paint a realistic picture of what the person or subject was like or about.

This documentary, Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine, should give us something interesting to talk about and steal a few quotes from, seeing as it's being assembled by hot doc maker Alex Gibney -- the man who won the internet for a short time recently with Scientology documentary Going Clear.

The Man in the Machine trailer retreads a lot of old ground, retelling the garage myth, showing lots of lovely old photos of Steve and his various types of hair and fluctuating weights, before turning a bit bleak and recounting a few Bad Steve stories about his kids, business dealings and more.

All stuff you can probably read on Wikipedia, but given a nice polish. [YouTube]
