Filming begins on upcoming Steve Jobs biopic

After a tumultuous few months concerning casting details, it looks like the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle, has finally started filming. A film crew was spotted today setting up the garage at Steve Jobs' childhood home to prepare for filming.

The setup was first reported by CNET, who detailed the layout of the set:

Cinderblock and wood shelves are pieced together along the walls. Roller skates, a Thermos, an old vacuum cleaner and 8-track player and stereo lay haphazardly about. An advertisement for a Braun electric coffee maker hangs on the wall, as does a poster featuring Bob Dylan holding a "Get Born" sign from a film clip featuring the song "Subterranean Homesick Blues." And the house itself has been painted a beige color with darker tan trim, contrasting with the formerly lighter exterior.

The Sorkin-penned biopic has been a long time in the making, going all the way back to 2011 when Sony purchased the rights to Walter Isaacson's biography of the late Apple co-founder. Since then, we've seen numerous rumors that indicated Christian Bale, then Leonardo DiCaprio would assume the role of Jobs. Later it was confirmed that Michael Fassbender would be starring in the film alongside Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak.
