According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Danny Boyle‘s headline-making Steve Jobs biopic will hit theaters this fall.

The film, written by Aaron Sorkin and starring Michael Fassbender as the Apple co-founder, has been given an Oct. 9, 2015 release date, Universal said on Wednesday. Seth Rogen also stars in the title as co-founder Steve Wozniak.

With an award season release date set, the biopic will open against Warner Bros. Vacation reboot, Relativity’s Halle Berry thriller Kidnap, and Buena Vista’s coast guard film, The Finest Hours, starring Chris Pine.

The Jobs biopic was originally set up at Sony, but Universal announced that it had picked up the film on Nov. 24 of last year.

Until Fassbender eventually nabbed the lead role, multiple actors had been attached to star as Jobs in the film, including Christian Bale and Leonardo DiCaprio.

More to come.
