Hot off the back of her phenomenal turn in time travel thriller, Predestination, Australian actress Sarah Snook has entered talks to join Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs movie.

Steve Jobs Biopic Shooting in Garage Where Apple was Built - Video and Photos

20 January 2015 8:56 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin's Steve Jobs biopic has finally moved into production. They are shooting part of the film in the actual garage where Jobs and Steve Wozniak started their Apple empire. 

CBS San Francisco news took some video of Jobs' old home in Los Altos, California over the weekend. I've also included some additional photos showing the detail of the completed set thanks to CNET. The 2013 Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad film, Jobs, also shot at this location. I think it's safe to say that this upcoming film is going to be a hell of a lot better, though. Here's a description of what is included on the set:

"Cinderblock and wood shelves are pieced together along the walls. Roller skates, a Thermos, an old vacuum cleaner and 8-track player and stereo lay haphazardly about. An advertisement for a Braun electric coffee maker hangs on the wall, »

Steve Jobs biopic casts role of Apple founder's daughter Lisa Jobs

6 January 2015 3:59 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Perla Haney-Jardine has been cast as Steve Jobs's daughter in Danny Boyle's biopic.

The up-and-coming actress will play Lisa Jobs in the Aaron Sorkin-written Universal Pictures film.

The Apple co-founder initially denied paternity of Lisa before acknowledging her as his daughter in her teens.

Michael Fassbender is attached to play Jobs with Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak.

Michael Stuhlbarg, Kate Winslet and Jeff Daniels will also feature in the movie.

Lisa Jobs was not part of Walter Isaacson's book - on which the film is based - but was interviewed by Sorkin last year in preparation for the film.

Haney-Jardine featured in Spider-Man 3, Kill Bill Vol 2 and 2012 indie drama Future Weather.

Natalie Portman was previously reported to be in line for the role of Lisa Jobs. »

'The Newsroom' Star Alison Pill Is Engaged

4 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The Newsroom may have ended, but one of its stars has a brand new beginning.

Alison Pill, who played Maggie Jordan on the HBO series, got engaged to her actor beau Joshua Leonard, 39, at Joshua Tree National Park. Pill, 29, posted their happy pic on Instagram yesterday saying, "Let's do this 2015!"

Just days before the engagement, the duo decorated the tree at Christmas together as Alison posted this pic at her family celebration.

Talk about a happy way to start 2015! This will be a big year for Pill as she’ll also star in Zoom, a film about a comic book artist, a novelist, and a film director authoring stories about each other.

Alison will have a wedding to plan this year, and the biggest celebrity weddings of 2014 can certainly provide some inspiration. Take a look in the video below.
