  • "I will not condone a course of action that will lead us to war."
  • iMore, PLEASE produce more posts about this biopic. I really need to know of every a-list celebrity that has turned this movie down like a year and a half before it hits theaters and three years after the project was announced. A Steve Jobs biopic really deserves five years of solid weekly media coverage despite the fact at least one other crappy biopic has already been released. This is essential information us Apple fans really need. If there's any way to increase the number of posts on this movie, I would truly appreciate it. I can really act on this information and it is extremely useful.
