It seems every piece of news touches upon Sony this week, and their former Steve Jobs biopic, now housed at Universal, continues to add to what is turning into a stellar cast for the Danny Boyle-directed, Aaron Sorkin-penned walk and talk, and talk and talk and talk.
Variety reports that Kate Winslet is in negotiations to join Michael Fassbender (as Jobs) and Seth Rogen (as Steve Wozniak) in “Jobs.” Other actors in play include Jeff Daniels circling the part of Apple president John Scully, with Michael Stuhlbarg signing up for the role of computer scientist Andy Hertzfeld, according to Deadline. As for Winslet? There’s no word on what character she might play.
Also on deck for the actress is the recently wrapped “The Dressmaker.” Screen Daily has the first look (up top) at the comedy about “a glamorous woman with a penchant for haute couture who returns to her small town in rural Australia to exact revenge on those who previously did her wrong.” So it’s true, fashion can be deadly.
“The Dressmaker” opens in Australia on October 1, 2015. There’s no U.S. distributor yet, but this seems like the perfect TIFF title to get those talks and sales going.
