The biopic, directed by Joshua Michael Stern and written byMatthew Whitely, chronicles Jobs’ ascension from college dropout to one of the most revered entrepreneurs of the 20thcentury. Part of the film was shot in the historic garage where Jobs first set up shop at his family’s home in Palo Alto, Calif.

The movie is a separate project from the official authorized Steve Jobs biopic, which will be produced by Sony Pictures, directed by The Social Network and West Wing writer Aaron Sorkin.
