Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs biopic isn’t lost after all. Days after Sony dropped the anticipated project, based on Walter Isaacson’s 2011 biography Steve Jobs, Universal has scooped it up for a reported $30 million. The studio has given it, and director Danny Boyle, the green light and will likely push for Michael Fassbender to star. [The Hollywood Reporter]

See Cara Delevingne like never before. The model-turned-actress is getting some camera time in Pan, the Warner Bros. Pictures fantasy about the origin of Peter Pan. Though she seemingly has few lines—she plays a mermaid after all—she’s serving plenty face and giving leads like Rooney MaraHugh Jackman, and Amanda Seyfried a run for their money. [ELLE]

Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, has been eight years in the making. Early next year, we’ll finally be able to see it. HBO will air the film—executive produced by Cobain’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain—in 2015 with hopes of offering an unprecedented look into the Nirvana front man’s life. “I discovered over 200 hours of unreleased music and audio, a vast array of art projects (oil paintings, sculptures), countless hours of never-before-seen home movies, and over 4,000 pages of writings that together help paint an intimate portrait of an artist who rarely revealed himself to the media,” said helmer Brett Morgen. Smells like… amazing. [HBO]

Carlton, ahem, Alfonso Ribeiro has won of Dancing with the Stars. It’s, frankly, no surprise that the former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star beat out designer Betsey Johnson, athlete Lolo Jones, and YouTube sensation Bethany Mota. We’re more flabbergasted that the dancing competition has lasted for 19 seasons. [Vulture]

Dracula’s dad is coming home. Mel Brooks has been tapped to voice the Vlad to Adam Sandler’s Dracula in Hotel Transylvania 2. Brooks said the September 25, 2015 release will peg his archaic character as “a pretty crabby guy. Basically, he reminds me of me.” [Variety]
