Main cast officially announced for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs biopic
Production is underway in San Francisco on Universal's STEVE JOBS biopic, and the studio has announced the full cast for the upcoming movie.
Danny Boyle is directing the film from a script by Aaron Sorkin (based on the Walter Isaacson biography Steve Jobs), and it will feature Michael Fassbender as Jobs, Seth Rogen as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Kate Winslet as former Macintosh marketing chief Joanna Hoffman, Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley, Katherine Waterston as Jobs' ex-girlfriend Chrisann Brennan, and Michael Stuhlbarg as Macintosh developer Andy Hertzfeld.
Rounding out the cast is Sarah Snook as Macintosh project leader Andrea Cunningham, Adam Shapiro as Apple Computer Senior VP of Software Engineering Avie Tevanian, and Perla Haney-Jardine, Ripley Sobo, and Mackenzie Moss will play Jobs’ daughter Lisa Brennan at various stages of her life.
Universal has also released an official logline for STEVE JOBS:
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,
I'm glad to see Seth Rogen dabbling a bit in drama like his THIS IS THE END co-star Jonah Hill, and I can never say no to more Kate Winslet. And to be honest, I'm glad Christian Bale and Leonardo DiCaprio left the project, because I think Michael Fassbender is going to be absolutely fantastic as the "Father of the Digital Revolution."
STEVE JOBS doesn't have a release date yet, but if everything goes well, Universal could release it late 2015, just in time for awards season.
