Five Star Feature Films has confirmed that the movie chronicling the life of Steve Jobs will film early scenes in the actual Los Altos home where Jobs grew up, including the garage where he and Steve Wozniak founded Apple Computer.
Starring Ashton Kutcher as the Silicon Valley visionary, jOBS will depict “Steve Jobs' most defining and personal moments, motivations, and the people that drove him.”
The producers have confirmed that the film will span the most defining 30 years of Jobs’ life, “from his early years as an impressionable youth and wayward hippie, through his initial successes and infamous ousting, to his storybook return and ultimate triumphs as a man who set out to change the world and did just that.”
On the newly launched web site, thejobsmovie.com
, it is said that Mark Hulme and Five Star Feature Films immediately launched the production after Jobs' retirement in August 2011.
Matt Whiteley, the screenwriter, is said to have developed the most truthful and gripping picture of Jobs' life, after employing a team of expert researchers based on months of research and interviews with Steve Jobs' friends, colleagues, and mentors.
“jOBS chronicles the 30 most defining years of Steve Jobs' life, as seen through his, colleagues', and friends' eyes,” reads the synopsis.
“Dark, honest, and uncompromising, jOBS plunges into the depths of his character, creating an intense dialogue-driven story that is as much a sweeping epic as it is an immensely personal portrait of Steve Jobs' life.”
“A rousing narrative of this business and tech icon, jOBS pulls no punches and does not speculate, telling only the candid and captivating account of the life of Steven Paul Jobs,” says Five Star Feature Films.
Represented by Creative Artists Agency, jOBS will be released in late fall 2012.
