Irish-German actor Michael Fassbender (X-Men) has been cast to take on the iconic role of digital revolutionary Steve Jobs in Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle’s (Slumdog Millionaire) biopic named just that: Steve Jobs.
The film takes us backstage at three game-changing product launches, including the iMac in 1998 with Jobs at the center of it all.
Universal Pictures has released a new teaser letting us in on some of the dialogue we’ll hear in the film and a quick look at Fassbender as Jobs and Kate Winslet (A Little Chaos) as Joanna Hoffman, former marketing chief of Macintosh:
The cast is rounded out with Canadian actor Seth Rogen (The Interview) as Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder, and British-born American actress Katherine Waterson (Boardwalk Empire) as Jobs’ ex-girlfriend. Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, The Social Network) wrote the screenplay.
The film premieres in the U.S. on October 9, 2015.
