Universal’s Steve Jobs film gets official title and cast


This Steve Jobs biopic has been through the ringer. After years of director changes, big stars (Christian Bale) joining and leaving the film, and Sony dropping the project after budget concerns, Steve Jobs (the film’s now official name) finally has filming underway thanks to Universal saving the whole thing. Now we’ve got a logline and full cast. First, here’s the logline: 

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.

And here’s the cast: 

  • Michael Fassbender – Steve Jobs
  • Kate Winslet – Joanna Hoffman, former Macintosh marketing chief
  • Seth Rogen – Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder
  • Jeff Daniels – John Sculley, former Apple CEO
  • Katherine Waterston – Chrisann Brenna, Jobs’ ex-girlfriend and mother of his child
  • Michael Stuhlbarg – Andy Hertzfeld, an original Apple Macintosh development team member
  • Perla Haney-Jardine, Ripley Sobo, and Mackenzie Moss – Jobs’ daughter Lisa Brennan at various stages of life
  • Sarah Snook – Andrea Cunningham, project leader of Apple Macintosh
  • Adam Shapiro – Avie Tevanian, Apple Computer Senior VP of Software Engineering

With a script written by Aaron Sorkin, and Danny Boyle set to direct, this’ll at least be better than the last Jobs biopic.
