Michael Fassbender stars as Jobs, heading a cast that includes Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Michael Stuhlberg and Katherine Waterston, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The New York Film Festival is familiar territory for Sorkin and Scott Rudin, one of Job's producers: They premiered their film "The Social Network" at NYFF in 2010. Based on Walter Isaacson's biography of "Jobs", the film is scheduled to be released by Universal on October 9.
While announcing its selection, festival director and selection committee chair Kent Jones said, "You hear that a bio of Steve Jobs is being produced, and of course you see multiple possible movies in your head ... but not this one. "
'Steve Jobs' is dramatically concentrated, yet beautifully expansive; it's extremely sharp; it's wildly entertaining, and the actors just soar you can feel their joy as they bit into the material."
Boyle said, "I am honoured that our film has been selected as the centerpiece of this year's festival. And thrilled and terrified too, unlike the subject of our film, who would have taken the whole thing very much in his stride."
The festival, which runs from September 25 to October 11, will open with Robert Zemeckis' "The Walk" and close with Don Cheadle's "Miles Ahead".
