Scott Rudin and Eli Bush are producing the film. Rudin, who has his first-look deal at Sony, executive produced Moneyball.

Rudin and Sorkin are frequent collaborators, having worked together on Social Network and the HBO series The Newsroom. They also have an untitled Steve Jobs project in the works at the studio that Danny Boyle is directing.”
