MacFormat reimagines Steve Jobs movie

There are two biopics of Steve Jobs currently in production: JOBS, starring Ashton Kutcher, and , adapted from Walter Isaacson’s biography by West Wing and The Social Network writer Aaron Sorkin.

That got  thinking. How would the world’s greatest film directors make the story a must-see? They started to wonder how differently the story would be told by different directors, and who would be best for the job.

After some heated discussions, MacFormat settled on a shortlist: action movie director of Transformers and Pearl Harbor fame; David Fincher of Fight Club, Se7en and The ; Pixar’s John Lasseter, director of Cars and A Bug’s Life as well as executive producer of Bolt, Finding Nemo and Brave; the inimitable Coen Brothers, who brought Raising Arizona, Fargo and O Brother, Where Art Thou?; and last but definitely not least, the late, great Norah Ephron, writer of When Harry Met Sally and writer/director of You’ve Got Mail and Sleepless In Seattle.

What might they have done with the story of Steve – and would any self-respecting fan actually want to see the results? Stock up on popcorn and pass the pic’n’mix as MacFormat try to re-imagine Steve Jobs, the movie.
