Like manna from heaven. That’s what new Natalie film news feels like.
According to Deadline Hollywood, Natalie is in talks for a major role (speculation indicates it might be Joanna Hoffman, the head of marketing for the Mac team) in Danny Boyle’s (Trainspotting, 127 Hours) upcoming Steve Jobs film, Jobs. The project had a rough few days last week when Sony backed out (Paramount stepped in immediately) and Christian Bale exited soon after. But Boyle is very much an A list director, and writer Aaron Sorkin still has enough of that Social Network heat, so it’s not totally surprising that the project is moving ahead full steam.
Natalie’s involvement might have something to do with Michael Fassbender. They worked together on the Untitled Terrence Malick film and then were going to star together in Jane Got A Gun, before Fassbender dropped out. They tried again with the upcoming Macbeth, but this time it was Natalie who had to drop out, replaced by Marion Cortillard.
Let’s hope that this time everything goes according to plan.
