DP/30, Steve Jobs, Danny Boyle

  • Published on Oct 12, 2015
  • He has an Oscar for directing, his name on a number of movie classics, and he remains one of the undeniable nice guys of the film world. With Steve Jobs, he took over the reigns on someone else's project for the first time and may have taken it to heights that no one else would have. He talks to David Poland about the whole shebang.

    Great interview, thanks!
    'Steve Jobs' was beautiful and Michael definitely did a great job. I can't imagine how hard it was for him to portray 'the icon' that believably.

    Also he says he saw and liked A Serious Man and it's honestly perfect cause Michael Stuhlbarg is a fucking genius.

    Also I love the way he talks about Michael Fassbender, 'cause I truly believe this man is it when it comes to acting. He's just a freak of nature. It's brilliant!

    I really hope David Bowie lets Danny have his music for that David Bowie biopic he wants to do with Frank Cottrell Boyce. I don't think there's anybody who could do Bowie's story justice like the great Danny Boyle.

    Got to meet him when he was filming on my campus. He skipped his lunch just to talk to the students; couldn't have been a nicer guy.

    david, do you get annoyed when a publicist steps in like that? or am I misreading that.

      +dkwookies Even if that were the case, which I don't agree that it is, 28 Months Later would still make a crap ton of money just based on the hype alone. People have been waiting years for Boyle to make that film.

    From what I'm heard it should be titled *_Aaron Sorkin's Faux Steve Jobs_*. Danny Boyle says that it is a successor to *_The Social Network_*. Danny says there should be a third movie but I hope not because, as an engineer who has lived through all of this, these moves do a disservices to the people involved.
    Hollywood hates Silicon Valley and it shows in these movies. They have distorted the facts and the nuance as to cut the heart out of the people they pretend to represent. They can make any movie they want, just make up the names of the characters just like they made up the stories. These stories have little to do with the real people.
    *_Halt and Catch Fire_* comes closer to my experience in start-ups and tech companies large and small for these past 35 years. Even the series *_Silicon Valley_*, while a farce, catches more of the nerd sensibility.
