Last weekend, makers of the Ashton Kutcher Steve Jobs biopic “jOBS” made an announcement that can be seen as a tribute to Late Steve Jobs. Makers said that they would begin the principal photography in the original garage that would later become the birthplace of Apple.
According to a press release, Five Star Feature Films, the production company behind the made for TV movie, is attempting to be as authentic as possible by shooting early scenes of the film in Jobs’ old Los Altos home and garage where Jobs and Steve Wozniak built the first Apple computer.
Five Star claims that the production of “jOBS” began immediately after Jobs’ retirement in 2011. The research supposedly included extensive research, which included interviews with friends, co-workers and mentors. The press release claimed that the producers wanted to create an accurate and enthralling of what they refer to as the “30 most defining years” of Steve Jobs’ life.
Executive Producer Mark Hulme said he hoped the movie, described in the press release as “dark, honest, and uncompromising,” will be completed in time for the fourth quarter of 2012. So far Kutcher, director Joshua Michale Stern (Swing Vote) and Oscar-winning cinematographer Russel Carpenter (Titanic) are attached to the project which will focus on Jobs’ life from 1971 to 2000, leading up to the release of the iPod.
