Those two men walking down the street might look like Michael Fassbender and Seth Rogen, but they’re actually Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, the co-founders of Apple. Director Danny Boyle is currently filming Steve Jobs, an Aaron Sorkin-penned film about the Apple entrepreneur. Production for the film is currently taking place in Northern California. Though we posted some super-blurry images of the actors in their roles a few days ago, now some super-clear pics have hit the net. Below, see new Michael Fassbender Steve Jobs and Seth Rogen/Steve Wozniak photos.
UPDATE: Universal has announced the release date for Steve Jobs. It’s October 9, 2015. Read More »
We know now a lot about the Danny Boyle directed, Aaron Sorkin written movie, Steve Jobs. We know the cast, we know the structure, but we don’t know what that cast looks like as their real life counterparts. Primarily, Michael Fassbender as Jobs himself.
Universal Pictures has yet to release anything official, but some fans have been able to snap some – admittedly crappy – images of the cast on set. In them, you can not-so-clearly see Fassbender as the icon. See the Michael Fassbender Steve Jobs pics below. Read More »

The Steve Jobs biopic has been through some ups and downs over the years. High-profile directors and stars came and went, original studio Sony dropped out altogether, and Universal had to come to the rescue. But now, at long last, it’s reached the starting line.
The film, now simply titled Steve Jobs, has officially begun shooting in San Francisco. Danny Boyle directs from a script by Aaron Sorkin, based on the biography by Walter Isaacson. The cast includes Michael Fassbender as the tech icon, plus Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Katherine Waterston, and Michael Stuhlbarg. Read the official announcement after the jump.

In November 2012 we learned that Aaron Sorkins‘ Steve Jobs biopic would be presented in three long real-time sequences written around specific Apple keynote events. Now that the movie is filming, under the direction of filmmaker Danny Boyle, we are starting to learn more about the feature film.
Last week video footage was released from the the film set outside of Steve Jobs’ old home in Los Altos, California where they are filming the garage where Jobs and Steve Wozniak began the Apple empire. This led a lot of people to wonder if Sorkin’s screenplay has changed. Will the film still be set during three Apple keynotes? And if so, how is does the Apple garage work into things? Find out about the Steve Jobs movie flashbacks, after the jump.

News trucks caught the film setting up shop at Steve Jobs’ old home in Los Altos, California over the weekend. There, they dressed and shot Jobs’ garage, where he and Steve Wozniak began the Apple empire. Below, watch a video from the Steve Jobs movie set. Read More »
For years, there has been the potential for some combination of director Danny Boyle, screenwriter Alex Garland and producer Andrew Macdonald to return to the story they originated in 28 Days Later. That film, a “viral outbreak” zombie story set in London and the English countryside, was an early example of digital cinematography and a big influence on the explosion of interest in zombie films. It spawned one sequel, 28 Weeks Later, and now Garland says that the three men have started to talk seriously about making a third film. Read More »
Everyone who walks out of Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice is likely wondering why we haven’t seen more from Katherine Waterston until just now. That’s due in no small part to the fact that she doesn’t just help drive the Inherent Vice plot, but takes center stage for one of the film’s most arresting scenes, performing in an unbroken long and very vulnerable take. (In fact, Waterston has been working for quite a while, and Boardwalk Empire fans should recognize her immediately.) Now Waterston has been offered a role in the Steve Jobs film scripted by Aaron Sorkin and set to be directed by Danny Boyle. Read More »
And now, an update on the Aaron Sorkin/Danny Boyle Steve Jobs film that doesn’t come from a leaked e-mail. After Jessica Chastain and Natalie Portman passed on a role, it seems Oscar winner Kate Winslet is the latest actress up for the female lead in the film. She’d star opposite Michael Fassbender as Jobs, Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak and Jeff Daniels as John Sculley. Read more about the Steve Jobs movie cast below. Read More »

Even before a single image is captured, the Aaron Sorkin-written, Danny Boyle-directed Steve Jobs biopic has featured plenty of drama. It changed studios, had a leading man exit, and several A-list actresses pass on some choice roles. As it stands now, Universal has the rights to the film, Michael Fassbender will play Jobs and Seth Rogen is his Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak.
The latest actor to potentially join the mix is Jeff Daniels. He’s being tapped to play former Apple CEO John Sculley and being as he’s already in good with Sorkin having starred on three seasons of The Newsroom, he certainly seems like a good fit.

UPDATE: Variety reported on December 8 that Portman passed on this role. It is thought that Portman (and Jessica Chastain before her) was actually up for the role of Joanna Hoffman, who was part of the original Apple Macintosh dev team, and for a while the only marketing person working on the Macintosh. Additionally, we’ve heard that one bit of info in the “three product launches” structure is wrong, and that it is actually the original iMac launch seen in the script, and not the iPod launch.
In a recent interview, screenwriter Aaron Sorkin said that one of Steve Jobs’ daughters, Lisa Nicole Brennan-Jobs, was the “heroine” of the film he scripted about Jobs’ life.
In the case of Steve Jobs, it’s the relationships he had – particularly with his daughter, Lisa – that drew me to it. She didn’t participate in Walter Isaacson’s book, because her father was alive at the time, and she didn’t want to alienate either of her parents, so I was very grateful that she was willing to spend time with me. She is the heroine of the movie.
We know that Danny Boyle is directing the film and that Michael Fassbender will play the lead. With that quote in mind, we now have a pretty good idea who will be playing that role. Natalie Portman is reportedly in talks to join the film. Read more about the Natalie Portman Steve Jobs casting below. Read More »
