Steve Jobs biopic to begin filming in June, with Ashton Kutcher starring; website launches

The unofficial biographical film of Steve Jobs will begin filming in June, with a release date expected late this fall, according to a press release sent out yesterday. Early scenes from the film will be shot in the actual home in Los Altos where Jobs grew up, including the famous garage where Jobs and Steve Wozniak launched their first Apple computer. The film's website is now live, though the only cast member that it currently lists is Ashton Kutcher, who will star as Jobs. Titled jOBS, the movie will "shed new light on Steve Jobs' most defining and personal moments, motivations, and the people that drove him." The production is employing a team of researchers in order to be as truthful and accurate as possible.
