Steve Jobs transformed computer culture, along with a new movie offers to etch his early legacy into the public consciousness. Ashton Kutcher’s depiction of Jobs inside independent biopic “Jobs: Get Inspired” will concentrate on the Apple founder’s early years, serving as an origin story for the prickly tech wizard and signaling Jobs’ status as a possible almost-mythological figure, an archetypal American hero — or, some would say, anti-hero.
Producer Mike Hulme revealed the film will primarily cover Jobs’ life from 1971 to 2000, ahead of the iPod, iPhone and iPad revolutionized the mobile technology industry and launched Jobs into super-stardom. During this time period, Jobs founded, left and went back to Apple and released the Apple II and Macintosh computers. The focus about this chapter in Jobs’ life highlights just how much the icon’s life story might be mined.
A Sony-backed Steve Jobs biopic depending on Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography can be within the works. This bigger-budget movie will hit theaters in a short time, while Kutcher’s portrayal of Jobs will likely hit the top screen towards the end of the year. Although he closely guarded his privacy, Jobs was arguably the best-known CEO on the globe, and the man occupied an exceptional position in American culture: the entrepreneur-inventor, a genius concocting gadgets that transformed technology.
Millions mourned his passing, and individuals including schoolchildren in Bulgaria to competitive runners in Tokyo felt compelled to honor his legacy. Hulme told Neowin.net that “Jobs: Get Inspired” will demonstrate an “accurate and inspirational portrayal,” suggesting the film may not concentrate on trickier elements of the Jobs story, like his troubled family relationships and his awesome hard-nosed business practices.
Since the Sony film comes from Isaacson’s book, which matches into detail about less flattering aspects of Jobs’ character, it might cast the Apple founder in a very less heroic light. However, these cinematic forays will likely cement Jobs’ status like a modern legend. Health-related reasons remains a large affect on modern tools, and the cult of celebrity will receive a boost from “Jobs: Get Inspired” and other future celluloid treatments with the rise of Apple. The person has disappeared, but his myth keeps growing.
