We recently heard that filming had started on the new Steve Jobs movie, which is based on the officially biography by Walter Isaacson, and now Universal Pictures as revealed the movies cast.
As previously rumored Michael Fassbender will star as Steve Jobs, Kate Winslet will star as Joanna Hoffman, Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak, and Jeff Daniels as John Scully.
Michael Fassbender (X-Men: Days of Future Past, 12 Years a Slave) will play Steve Jobs, the pioneering founder of Apple, with Academy Award®-winning actress Kate Winslet (The Reader, Eternal Sunshine of Spotless Mind) starring as Joanna Hoffman, former marketing chief of Macintosh. Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple, is played by Seth Rogen (Neighbors, The Interview), and Jeff Daniels (HBO’s The Newsroom, Good Night, and Good Luck.) stars as former Apple CEO John Sculley. The film also stars Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice, Being Flynn) as Chrisann Brennan, Jobs’ ex-girlfriend, and Michael Stuhlbarg (A Serious Man, HBO’s Boardwalk Empire) as Andy Hertzfeld, one of the original members of the Apple Macintosh development team.
The movie will be set around three major announcements of Apple products, these have yet to be announced, although we would expect the iPhone and iPad to be two of the three announcements.
