'Steve Jobs' Set Photos Reveal Michael Fassbender and Seth Rogen as Jobs and Woz

Just in time for Universal's announcement of an awards season for Steve Jobs, some prime set photos provide good looks at Michael Fassbender and Seth Rogen as Apple co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak.

The A-list Jobs biopic has endured plenty of turbulence so far, cycling through one director (David Fincher), two leading men (Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale), one studio (it started out at Sony), and stinky laundry aired very publicly as part of last year's hacking drama.

Nonetheless, Universal has signaled its confidence by scheduling the release for October 9th of this year. 

That's just nine months away.  It's also a prime spot for a potential horse in next year's Oscar race.Despite Oscar-winners Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin writing and directing, it's too early to speculate about the awards season fate of Steve Jobs.  Filming just kicked off in Cupertino last week, after all.

Thanks to The Daily Mail, we have several unofficial pictures from the Northern California set, not too far from Apple HQ.  The pictures show Fassbender and Wozniak in costume as the men who would change consumer tech, and in the last one they're interacting with their director, the one and only Mr. Boyle.

Unlike the Jobs movie that starred Ashton Kutcher, Steve Jobs isn't exactly a conventional biography.  It's divided into three distinct sections, as Sorkin himself told The Daily Beast back in 2012.

"There will be no time cuts," he said. "Each of these three scenes is going to take place before a product launch—backstage before a product launch. The first one being the Mac, the second one being NeXT (after he had left Apple), and the third one being the iPod."

With Fassbender leading the film as the title character, the supporting cast includes Rogen, Kate Winslet, Jeff Daniels, Katherine Waterston, and Michael Stuhlbarg.
