Ashton Kutcher will play Steve Jobs in an upcoming movie

Ashton Kutcher will play Steve Jobs in an upcoming movie
Ashton Kutcher will play Steve Jobs in an upcoming indie movie. This seems like an April’s Fools joke crafted by a genius, but all clues say it’s actually true. Trade paper Variety broke the news on Sunday, April 1st, but we’ve never seen the publication post jokes and moreover this is featured, so while reserving some caution, we’d take it at face value.

Film reporter Jeff Sneider said that Kutcher will play the main role in the indie movie “Jobs.” It seems that the movie will cover the most interesting moments of Jobs’ life starting with his hippie youth and going to his growth to co-founder of Apple.

The film will be directed by Joshua Michael Stern known for “Swing Vote” and the script will be written by Matt Whiteley. Production is expected to start in May when Ashton Kutcher will have some spare time from “Two and a half men.”

Kutcher is mostly known for his roles in romantic comedy, but recently critics lavished praise on his performances in more serious movies like Emilio Estevez's historical drama "Bobby."

Sony is also preparing a motion picture dedicated to Steve Jobs based on Walter Isaacson's biography, but that one would be far from an indie movie.

I had already had the idea of a movie with Kutcher playing Jobs!! Unbelievable! But yeah, they're actually very similar... I'm pretty sure many had noticed that

No I'm pretty sure NO one noticed that until the pictures were put up side by side.

Haha, agreed. Bad news for Kutcher, Jobs didn't age very well! It's probably because he was stressing over everything!

I used to like Ashton. Now, I'm going to stop watching 2½ SiSSies. Why would anyone want to portray the self-absorbed, self-righteous, anorexiC enslÅving owner of the EviL EmpiRe?!

Pirates of Silicon valley is another good movie about Jobs and Bill Gates, Check it if you havn't seen it yet.

I liked it and recommend it too. Makes you wonder whats truth and whats fiction. Dont know what happened since I saw it many years ago....I used to like Apple. Even tho I never owned an Apple product. I live by Windows...and looked at Gates in another light after that movie. Antenna Gate just left a bad taste....they still make great products tho.
