Don’t get too excited about this, it’s just a rumor. But one hell of the rumor!
Apparently, George Clooney could play the leading role in the upcoming Sony Pictures’ adaptation of Walter Isaacson‘s authorized biography of Steve Jobs.
We already had a little chat about this project but as you see things are getting quite serious now…
Still, Clooney is not the only one interested in this role. According to TheSun, his former ER co-star Noah Wyle is also in contention to play the Apple co-founder and revered leader.
And we all agree that Wyle is definitely a very good choice. After all, he previously played Jobs in the TV movie Pirates of Silicon Valley and Jobs liked his portrayal so much that he even invited him to reprise his role at Macworld New York in 1999.
I will once again remind you that Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs is based on over 40 interviews with the Apple co-founder and over 100 conversations with friends, family members, colleagues and competitors.
It’s described as a compelling story: the building of the world’s most valuable technology company by creating the devices that changed how people use electronics and revolutionized the computer, music, and mobile phone industries.
There are also rumors that filming on this project is set to begin next year.
Of course, nothing confirmed yet but we’ll be right back with every new update on this one. Stay tuned, and let us know what you think about this rumor!
