The film will show Jobs’ ascent after dropping out of college to become one of the 20th century’s most promising entrepreneurs. A part of the film was shot in the actual garage where Steve Jobs set up shop at his family home in Palo Alto, California.
This will be a great film to pay tribute to Jobs and see Ashton Kutcher enact Jobs’ rise to fame like all the stories we have read about him.
Previously, Pirates of the Silicon Valley, which was released in 1999 was loosely based on the story of a young Steve Jobs. Aaron Sorkin is also writing a screenplay for a movie that will be based on Steve Jobs’ autobiography, which was written by Walter Isaacson. This movie will be produced by Sony.
