The upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, based upon Walter Isaacson’s popular 2011 biography, has already overcome quite a few obstacles. Sony dropped its backing completely last week with Universal swooping in to take over. Several other Jobs films have been released in the interim. But the good news is that this project has secured an incredibly talented cast and crew.

‘Slumdog Millionare’s’ Danny Boyle will direct the film, with ‘The Social Network’s’ Aaron Sorkin writing the screenplay.

Michael Fassbender is confirmed for the project, with Seth Rogen playing Steve Wozniak. Now, Deadline has reported that Natalie Portman is in negotiations to join the biopic as well, possibly replacing the previously rumored Scarlett Johansson role.

Portman recently completed shooting her directorial debut ‘A Tale of Love and Darkness’ based upon Israeli author Amos Oz’s memoir. Additionally, she is starring in two upcoming Terrence Malick films and co-producing ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.’
