fassbender jobs

Universal Pictures announced on Wednesday that the Steve Jobs biopic will be released on Friday, October 9, 2015, written by Aaron Sorkin and based on the best selling biography by Walter Isaacson.

The film, which has seen a rough road to begin filming, features Michael Fassbender playing Steve Jobs and Seth Rogen playing Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.

Directed by Danny Boyle, the film is finally getting a solid release date after setbacks and filming has begun at Jobs’ childhood home in Los Altos, California. Sony had originally been set to produce the film, but the company dropped it and Universal Pictures took it up.

The film will be centered around three pivotal moments in Apple’s history: the debut of the original Macintosh, the unveiling of the NeXT computer, and the introduction of the iPod.

Photos of Fassbender as Jobs and Rogen as Wozniak in early filming, leaked over the weekend.

    Interesting selection of moments. The obvious other one would have been the introduction of the iPhone, but in a way was less personally game-changing than the introduction of the iPod. The iPod reversed Apple’s fortunes and catapulted Jobs back into prominence, whereas the iPhone rode that success and took it even higher.

    Sorry but Ashton’s performance will still nail it.

      This movie will be better than “jobs” as I believe it was abit rushed the movie and was skimmed over “NeXt” milestone. Josh gad was a great choice for WOZ. Ashton as jobs i believ could of been better in my opinion. Noah Wylie played a amazing jobs in “pirates of Silicon Valley” . So in this movie it’ll be interesting seeing Micheal fassenbender play jobs even Thou he is a amazing actor and can adapt to any role i believe. Rogen as woz im on the fence about. But im hoping they do this movie about jobs more justice than first. But it’s always fun watching the life of jobs on screen. he was the master at reinventing the wheel.

        I don’t know what’s funnier, you mentioning fassenbender (who looks nothing like Steve) playing jobs, or the signature you left behind “sent from my iPhone”
