Leonardo DiCaprio and Our Danny Boyle Rumoured to be Working on Steve Jobs Movie

I vote they just give all the roles to Leo. ALL of them. Though talk of everyone's favourite angry-man Christian Bale donning Jobs's round-rimmed frames for the Aaron Sorkin-penned film were tantalising, a Leo and Danny duo sounds like a great move.

The Hollywood Reporter has reported that producers are tapping up Danny Boyle (director of Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire, and more recently the London Olympics opening ceremony) to take on the latest in a string of Steve Jobs flicks, after Aaron Sorkin's pal David Fincher (you saw his work on The Social Network) reportedly bowed out.

It's still early days for the film, with production looking to begin either late this year or early 2015. With this all-star cast it's bound to do better than last year's Jobs, which starred Ashton Kutcher and only pulled in $35 million worldwide. (The Hollywood Reporter via The Guardian]
