After months of bumps in the road, Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs biopic is finally heading into production. Universal has announced ‘Steve Jobs’ as the official and not-very-surprising title for the film, along with a full cast lineup and breakdown, as well as the official plot. It’s all happening.

According to my calculations, it’s been 146 months since the initial U.K. release of ‘28 Days Later,’ Danny Boyle and Alex Garland’s rightfully acclaimed zombie movie about the aftermath of a terrible virus unleashed in the middle of London. The film is credited with helping revitalize the zombie genre (and popularizing zombies who run like the dickens at their victims instead of the classic George Romero shufflers), and it inspired a 2007 sequel, ‘28 Weeks Later.’ There was talk of another sequel, a ‘28 Months Later,’ set a little over two years after the zombie outbreak, but so far, the project hasn’t gotten off the ground (and we’re now about 120 months past the titular date).

After switching from Sony to Universal, the formerly troubled Steve Jobs biopic continues to build its cast lineup. Kate Winslet has been in negotiations to join the cast as the female lead, but she’s no longer alone—following her fantastic breakthrough performance in ‘Inherent Vice,’ Katherine Waterston (yes, daughter of actor Sam Waterston) has been tapped to star in the Jobs film alongside Michael Fassbender and Seth Rogen.

Just last month, Natalie Portman was in talks to star in the troubled Steve Jobs biopic, which recently landed at Universal after being dropped by Sony (which has been dealing with enough problems of its own in recent weeks). Portman quickly turned down the role of the film’s female lead opposite Michael Fassbender, and although production on the biopic has been troubled, the film continues to pick up new cast members. The latest update on the project has Universal eyeing Kate Winslet to fill their Natalie Portman-shaped void.

Aaron Sorkin and Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs biopic has certainly become one of the most troubled productions in recent memory: After replacing a director, losing two leading men, and switching studios from Sony to Universal, the upcoming film has hit another bump in the road. Natalie Portman, who entered negotiations to star in the untitled Jobs biopic just before Thanksgiving, has decided to take a pass.

It's been a bumpy road for Aaron Sorkin's Steve Jobs biopic: the change of director from David Fincher to Danny Boyle, the change of leading man from Leonardo DiCaprio to Christian Bale to a big question mark, and now apparently a change of studio, as Sony has dropped the project entirely. But right on the heels of that announcement comes news that Universal is likely to save the day.

Another day, another development for Sony's Steve Jobs biopic! Christian Bale abruptly dropped out of the ambitious film only yesterday, but director Danny Boyle and the studio have already set their sights on one of the few leading men who can match his intensity: Michael Fassbender.
