Following the release of the trailer for Danny Boyle‘s biopic “Steve Jobs,” Bloomberg Business reached out to Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak to get his thoughts. And though he said he liked the trailer, he notes inaccuracies.
Particularly the dialogue Seth Rogen, who plays Wozniak in the film, says at the beginning of the trailer to Jobs, played by Michael Fassbender.
At the start of the trailer we hear the Wozniak character in voiceover say to Jobs:
“What do you do? You’re not an engineer, you’re not a designer. You can’t put a hammer to a nail. I built the circuit board. The graphical interface was stolen. So how come, 10 times in a day, I read Steve Jobs is a genius? What do you do?”
“I don’t talk that way,” Wozniak told Bloomberg Business via email. “I would never accuse the graphical interface of being stolen. I never made comments to the effect that I had credit (genius) taken from me.”
Wozniak continued: “The lines I heard spoken were not things I would say but carried the right message, at least partly. I felt a lot of the real Jobs in the trailer, although a bit exaggerated.”
The film, which opens October 9 and is based on Walter Isaacson’s Jobs biography, looks at the life of Jobs from his rise in Silicon Valley as the co-founder of Apple to his death due to a rare form of pancreatic cancer in 2011.
According to the Bloomberg story, Wozniak consulted with the film’s screenwriter Aaron Sorkin before the script was written and met the cast, even having dinner with Rogen.
