It’s taken far longer than anyone expected to get the Steve Job biopic that Aaron Sorkin is writing ready to go, but now it seems to be finally moving forward, with Christian Bale signing on the star last week. Now he’s got a co-star, with TheWrap reporting that Seth Rogen is in talks to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
The film is based on Walter Isaacson’s biography of Jobs, which was written after extensive interviews with the Apple head honcho and those around him. The film version will be split into three parts, centred around the keynote speeches made when he announced three iconic Apple products, the Mac, NeXT and the original iPod.
It’s believed that around this is will be able to tell the story of the founding on Apple and Jobs’ tumultuous journey. Wozniak co-founded Apple, and is credited with launching the Apple I and Apple II personal computers in the late 1970s.
Danny Boyle is set to direct although it’s not clear when it will shoot.
