Ashton Kutcher to play Steve Jobs in biopic

By

Due to be filmed during the 2.5 Men off-season, an independent biopic will race against the larger studios to tell the Steve Jobs story first.

Both The Hollywood Reporter and Variety Magazine are reporting that Ashton Kutcher has been signed to play Apple founder and recently deceased CEO Steve Jobs in a biopic to be filmed in May.  This timeframe was selected in order to not interfere with Kutcher's commitments to the sitcom, "Two and a half men" which will be in its off-season at the time.

This picture hopes to be the first to market, beating the Sony-sponsored movie to be based on Walter Isaacson's biography of Jobs.

Kutcher is an obvious choice to play Jobs - the similarity between Kutcher and a young Steve Jobs is quite uncanny as any web image search will reveal.

The movie will be directed by Joshua Michael Stern based on a script by Matt Whiteley.
