  • Filming for the Steve Jobs Biopic Begins at Jobs' Childhood Home

    The principal filming for the Steve Jobs biopic written by Aaron Sorkin officially started in California this past Friday with crews set up at the house where Jobs and Wozniak built the first Apple computer in 1976. CNET reports that the film crews are finally on location and prepping Jobs’ childhood home in Los Altos, California for shooting after years of being in production. The garage where Jobs and Wozniak dreamt up the idea of Apple has been returned to the ‘70s for the shoot with props such as an 8-track player and Bob Dylan poster.

    It should be noted that the house was among a selection of possible locations revealed in a batch of emails that leaked online as part of Sony’s hack. The shoot was planned to originally be at “two auditoriums, a restaurant and a garage.” The same leak also revealed Sorkin’s plans for his adaptation of Walter Isaacson’s “Steve Jobs” biography. No detail breakdown was made available but previous reports claim tat the story will be told across three major scenes, all of which take place before product unveilings for the first Mac, NeXT and the original iPod.

    For those of you who didn’t already know, Sony previously picked up the rights to Walter Isaacson’s Jobs biography shortly after Jobs’ death in 2011. That being said, the road to producing the movie has been a slow process that has been dragging along for quite some time. Locking down a suitable cast has been particularly difficult as multiple big-name Hollywood stars passed on leading roles. Even David Finch, the previous director of the film disassociated himself from the movie over disputed contract terms. Sony ended up dropping the project last November only for Universal Studios to pick it up a few days later.

    As of right now, Michael Fassbender is set to play Jobs with Seth Rogen as Wozniak, Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley and Michael Stuhlbarg as Mac OS programmer, Andy Hertzfield. Kate Winslet is also set to play a part, which currently remains unknown, but speculation points towards her playing Jobs’ wife. The Academy Award-wining director Danny Boyle will be directing the film joined by producers Scott Rudin, Mark Gordon and Guymon Casady.

    We’ll have to see how the production goes and eventually how the movie turns out by being patient.
