The pictures published on Monday by U.K. tabloid the Daily Mail offer the first glimpse of how Fassbender and Rogen will appear in their respective roles. Fassbender, is seen in a double-breasted jacket and bowtie with long hair combed back, presumably showing Jobs in the early days of Apple.

The set photos show Fassbender and Rogen talking and walking, and also interacting with the film's director, Danny Boyle.

Filming is taking place in California, near Apple's current headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. It was in nearby Los Altos where Jobs and Wozniak put together the boards of their first computer, the Apple I.

The cast of the Universal Studios film was officially announced last week, as principal photography on the project began. Based on the Walter Isaacson biography "Jobs," the film currently has the title of "Steve Jobs."

The script for the movie was penned by Aaron Sorkin who, like director Danny Boyle, is an Academy Award winner. The movie is believed to take place backstage at three product launches, ending with the iMac's debut in 1998.



Other notables in the cast include Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley, Kate Winslet as former Mac marketing lead Joanna Hoffman, Kateron Waterston as Jobs' former girlfriend Chrisann Brenna, and Michael Stuhlbarg as Mac programmer Andy Hertzfeld.

The movie had a tumultuous path before filming began, including the exit of director David Fincher, and a number of high-profile actors who turned down the lead role. Even the studio behind the movie swapped hands after Sony passed on the film last November.
