Ashton Kutcher Starring Steve
Worst. Title. Ever.
Friday makers of the Ashton Kutcher Steve Jobs biopic “jOBS” announced they are set to begin principal photography in the original garage that would later become the birthplace of Apple.
The production company behind the made for TV movie, Five Star Feature Films, 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 according to a press release issued today.
Five Star claims production of “jOBS” began immediately after Jobs’ retirement in 2011. The research supposedly included extensive research, including interviews with friends, co-workers and mentors. The press release claims the producers want to create an accurate and enthralling of what they refer to as the “30 most defining years” of his life.
Executive Producer Mark Hulme said he hopes 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 in the 30 years leading up to the release of the iPod.
