Michael Fassbender 'Steve Jobs Biopic' Starts Filming

These are the first pictures from Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs biopic staring Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs and Seth Rogan as Apple's co-founder Steve Wozniak.

Based on the best-selling biography by Walter Isaacson, the film had been in production limbo with both directors and actors arriving and leaving the project.

Filming has now started after Danny Boyle agreed to direct the film and both Fassbender and Rogan signed up for the lead roles.

The film will reportedly be shot in the style of a play, with three large half hour segments detailing three significant points in Jobs' life. The first being the NeXT computer, the second being the launch of the original iMac and finally the third being Apple's unveiling of the iPod in 2001.

Alongside the two leads, the film will star Kate Winslet, Katherine Waterson and Jeff Daniels.
