Hundreds of extras streamed into San Francisco's War Memorial Opera House on Monday for a chance to be part of a scene focused on the October 1989 launch of NeXT computer, reports ABC news.
"What we are filming are the big roll out scenes that Steve Jobs was so famous for, where there were world changing inventions," BeInAMovie.Com spokesperson Cash Oshman said. The site is also recruiting extras for another scene that will be shot in San Francisco on March 29.
One picture from the set reveals a poster depicting Michael Fassbender as Jobs. The Apple co-founder is posing with the NeXT Computer, often referred to as "The Cube".
Another picture shows Fassbender outside the Opera Hall still dressed as Steve Jobs.
The actual unveiling of the NeXT Computer took place across the street at the Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall. Apparently scenes will be filmed there as well.
The Steve Jobs movie is being directed by Academy Award winner Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) and is written by Academy Award winner Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, HBO’s The Newsroom), working from Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography of the Apple founder. Michael Fassbender will play Steve Jobs and Kate Winslet stars 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 movie is set for release on October 9th.
