It seems that new information about Steve Jobs’ film is coming out. If a few months ago we learned that Ashton Kutcher would play Apple’s CEO, today we know a rather curious fact. Mark Hulme intends to shoot the first scenes of the film in the real house where it all happened. I suppose that thanks to this, I will avoid the temptation to break in and take pictures on one of my visits to the United States.
When we announced a little over a month ago that Steve Jobs was going to have a movie, I was happy. However, the fact that Ashton Kutcher was going to play Steve didn’t bring me that much joy. I didn’t like it at all, to be honest. I hope I’m wrong and at the time of the premiere, a servant will swallow all his words. In spite of all this, and bearing in mind the hopeful production by Sony, I have to admit that the news that has reached my ears today makes me see Mark Hulme’s film with different eyes.
A recent press release seems to have brought out some data from this production. The most relevant, the one that gives sense to the title of the news, is the one that tells us that the first scenes of the film will be shot in the original house where everything happened . As we already know, the film will narrate Jobs’ life between 1971 and 2000, so the fact of shooting in such a concrete place, physically and temporarily, can give the film a very personal, intimate and real touch. This shows that at least Hulme is taking care of the details and getting involved as he should.
It seems that war is served . Two different ways of making films; on the one hand a modest production , which simply has the name of Jobs, the face of Kutcher and the letter of an early release (late autumn 2012). On the other hand a Sony blockbuster , which has Wozniak as advisor, the rights to Walter Isaacson’s biography and a famous screenwriter, Aaron Sorkin who has proved his worth in films like The Social Network. If you want more information about the film, its official website is already up and running.
