The cast list has been finalized and the Hollywood machine is in motion on the Steve Jobs biopic.

Per AppleInsider the movie, which was penned by Aaron Sorkin, is set to take place backstage at three product launches, ending with the iMac’s debut in 1998. The screenplay was adapted for the screen from Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs biography.

As previously reported, Michael Fassbender (X-Men: Days of Future Past, 12 Years a Slave) will play the title role, while Seth Rogen (The Interview, Pineapple Express) is to take on company cofounder Steve Wozniak. Other notables include Jeff Daniels (Dumb and Dumber, HBO’s The Newsroom) as former Apple CEO John Sculley, Kate Winslet (Titanic, The Reader) as former Mac marketing lead Joanna Hoffman, Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice) as Jobs’ former girlfriend Chrisann Brennan and Michael Stuhlbarg (HBO’s Boardwalk Empire) as famed Mac programmer Andy Hertzfeld.

Offering some perspective on the story’s timeline, three actresses are slate to play Jobs’ daughter Lisa Brennan-Jobs, including Perla Haney-Jardine (Future Weather), Ripley Sobo (Winter’s Tale) and Makenzie Moss. Finally, Sarah Snook is set to play PR guru Andrea Cunningham, while Adam Shapiro (A Single Man) will play former Apple SVP of Software Engineering Avie Tevanian, who is credited with spearheading development of Mac OS X.

After years in production and swapping hands from Sony to Universal, the Jobs film finally got underway this month at the late Apple cofounders childhood home in Los Altos, California.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
