Ashton Kutcher Will Be Steve Jobs
Not an April Fool... A biopic

01 April 2012  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Variety

Given that this story appeared on April 1, you might be forgiven for thinking that it was all a big joke, but it’s true: Ashton Kutcher is now attached to play Steve Jobs in Joshua Michael Stern’s Jobs.

It’s actually not as much of a stretch as you might imagine, especially since Kutcher as he is now bears a resemblance to a younger Jobs. And while he may not exactly boast the most range among his acting generation, he has pulled off a few decent performances, including Spread and his turn in Emilio Estevez’ Bobby.

But this will be a new challenge entirely, since Matt Whiteley’s script tracks Jobs from his early bohemian days through his early struggles and eventual triumph at Apple. We hope he’s already practicing his “Just one more thing…” line.

Jobs’ life is certainly good fodder for a movie – a driven, ambitious, radical thinker, Jobs was rightly praised for the vision he brought to not only technology but also art, helping the shepherd Pixar’s difficult birth. But he gained notoriety for his pushy management style and foul moods.

Stern, who last directed Swing Vote, is looking to start shooting next month, when Kutcher will be on hiatus from Two And A Half Men.
