Michael Fassbender, Seth Rogen and Kate Winslet have been confirmed to be starring in director Danny Boyle's biopic Steve Jobs.
Fassbender will be playing the Apple pioneer, following previous shake-ups that linked Leonardo DiCaprio, Bradley Cooper and Christian Bale to he role.
Universal Pictures has announced that Rogen will play Jobs's earlier collaborator Steve Wozniak and Winslet is portraying Macintosh marketing expert Joanna Hoffman.
Steve Jobs will also feature Jeff Daniels as ex-Apple CEO John Sculley, Inherent Vice's Katherine Waterston as Jobs's former partner Chrisann Brennan and Michael Stuhlbarg as early Mac developer Andy Hertzfeld.
Universal Pictures said in a statement: "Set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, the film takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicentre."
The ensemble drama will also feature Perla Haney-Jardine (Kill Bill Vol 2) and Sarah Snook (Jessabelle).
Boyle's project is the second recent film about the life of Steve Jobs. Ashton Kutcher played the technology pioneer in the 2013 critically-panned biopic Jobs.
Academy Award winner Aaron Sorkin is writing the new film based on Walter Isaacson's biography on Jobs.
No release date has yet been set for Steve Jobs, but production is underway in San Francisco.
