It ain’t about how you start, its about how you finish. That’s the mindset of those involved in the long delayed Steve Jobs biopic, officially titled Steve Jobs. Written by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network), this biopic has gone thru a number of big talents while under the guidance of Sony Pictures. From Director David Fincher, to actors Christian Bale and Leonardo DiCaprio, each person briefly attached to the project who then eventually departed. It was a complete mess. Now the biopic, under the ownership of Universal Pictures is moving along into its production, with reports of the cast and crew in San Francisco shooting at a familiar location.
Director David Boyle and his cast, led by Michael Fassbender (Steve Jobs) and Seth Rogen (Steve Wozniak) have shot a scene at the same garage where Jobs and Wozniak built the first apple computer. This location was also used in the 2012 independent film jobs, starring Ashton Kutcher. Don’t go mistaking the two films to be exactly the same now. Talent alone separates this biopic in-the-making from the previous attempt.
Along with the official release of the biopic titled Steve Jobs is the cast and plot (Universal via. Collider)….
