Michael Fassbender, Seth Rogen begin filming 'Steve Jobs'

Posted on

The first shots from the set of Steve Jobs have arrived featuring a long-haired, bow-tied Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs and a full-bearded Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak.

Filming began last week in California after Universal announced casting for the film had been finalized.

The film from Universal is based off Walter Isaacson’s biography of the Apple founder and struggled with casting with both Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale dropping out of the lead role. 

“Set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, the film takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter,” said Universal in a release.

Danny Boyle is tapped direct with Aaron Sorkin penning the screenplay. Kate Winslet is set to play former Macintosh marketing boss Joanna Hoffman and Jeff Daniels stars as former Apple CEO John Sculley.
