The film, written by The Newsroom’s Aaron Sorkin, stars Michael Fassbender in the title role alongside Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Michael Stuhlbarg, Katherine Waterstone and Jeff Daniels. The screening will mark the film’s European premiere, with Fassbender and Winslet set to be in attendance.
Director Boyle said on the announcement today: “If London was the cradle of the Industrial Revolution then San Francisco is the Bethlehem of the digital one. We had a brilliant time making this movie in Silicon Valley and I hope Londoners will enjoy a behind-the-scenes look into the making of the modern world.”
BFI London Film Festival director Clare Stewart also: “Danny Boyle has created an exhilarating and audacious film starring Michael Fassbender as the complex, charismatic digital pioneer.”
Steve Jobs opens October 9th in the US, with a UK release set for November 13th
