'Steve Jobs' biopic starts filming in historic garage where Apple was founded
“Steve Jobs,” the biopic penned by Aaron Sorkin based on the authorized biography of the titular Apple cofounder written by Walter Isaacson, has finally entered production. And as reported by CNET, its filming kicks off right where Apple began.
The upcoming movie is actually using the historic garage at Steve Jobs’ childhood home in Los Altos, California, as one of its shooting locations. It’s the same garage where Jobs and Steve Wozniak famously founded Apple in 1976.
The garage was also used in the filming of the “Jobs” film starring Ashton Kutcher in the title role, released in 2013 to poor reviews and box office receipts.
The new Jobs movie is also set to be shot in San Jose and Berkeley.
According to Sorkin, the movie requires only four shooting locations: “two auditoriums, a restaurant and a garage.” Its script is said to be composed of three 30-minute acts, each taking place before a major product launch spearheaded by Jobs, namely, the original Mac in 1984, the NeXT cube in 1988, and the iPod in 2001.
According to a casting call for extras put out late last month, the film’s production runs from January through April 2015.
Directed by Danny Boyle and handled by Universal, “Steve Jobs” stars Michael Fassbender as Jobs and Seth Rogen as Wozniak. Other confirmed cast members include: Michael Stuhlbarg as former Apple employee Andy Hertzfeld; Katherine Waterston as Chrisann Brennan, Jobs’ longtime partner; and Perla Haney-Jardine as Lisa Brennan-Jobs, Jobs’ first child and daughter of Brennan.
