Filming for the biopic “Jobs," the true story of Apple founder Steve Jobs, has begun on location in Los Angeles and Los Altos, Calif. The cast, which includes Ron Eldard, John Getz, Lesley Ann Warren, James Woods, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, Matthew Modine and Dermot Mulroney, will join Ashton Kutcher, who plays the title role.
“Jobs” will be directed by Joshua Michael Stern (“Swing Vote”, “Neverwas”) from an original screenplay by Matt Whiteley, and is a Five Star Feature Film Production produced by Mark Hulme.
Another high-profile Silicon Valley themed movie, “The Social Network”, the 2010 film about the founding of social networking site Facebook, was also filmed in various locations in Los Angeles. Getz played the role of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg's attorney in “The Social Network.”
"Jobs" chronicles Jobs’ transformation from the enthusiasm and self-discovery of his youth to the personal demons that clouded his vision, and finally to the ultimate triumphs of his later life.
