Steve Jobs. Billionaire. Genius. Artist.
And apparently, according to the Jobs biopic that starred Ashton Kutcher, a total D-bag. But, we have another Steve Jobs biopic coming out. This one, starring Michael Fassbender. Yes, Magneto himself. Academy Award winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) has taken over the reigns for this project and the search for the perfect actor to embody the visionary mogul began, after the production went through a few different directors and stars attached.
This new biopic, from the screenwriter of The Social Network, is simply called Steve Jobs. Here’s the teaser.
Set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, STEVE JOBS takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter.
STEVE JOBS is directed by Academy Award® winner Danny Boyle and written by Academy Award® winner Aaron Sorkin, working from Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography of the Apple founder. The producers are Mark Gordon, Guymon Casady of Film 360, Scott Rudin and Academy Award® winner Christian Colson.
Michael Fassbender plays Steve Jobs, the pioneering founder of Apple, with Academy Award®-winning actress Kate Winslet starring as Joanna Hoffman, former marketing chief of Macintosh. Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple, is played by Seth Rogen, and Jeff Daniels stars as former Apple CEO John Sculley. The film also stars Katherine Waterston as Chrisann Brennan, Jobs’ ex-girlfriend, and Michael Stuhlbarg as Andy Hertzfeld, one of the original members of the Apple Macintosh development team.
