Earlier this year I set up a simple goal for myself and that was to be an extra in a movie. As luck would have it, my goal would come true within the first month of what I had hoped for. And now, the movie I and K are extras in have revealed their new trailer. What is the movie? Glad you asked. Its Steve Jobs.
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
So for me, its not just going to be another Steve Jobs movie. Aside from being a man I truly admire, especially after reading the Steve Jobs biography from Walter Isaacson – to which the movie seems to closely follow, who just so happened to make a dent in the universe, you just may find me in the movie transported back to the 1980’s.
