Ashton Kutcher has reportedly been chosen to play Apple founder Steve Jobs in an Indie movie called Jobs.
According to Variety.com, the film will unfold the life of Jobs from his early days as a wayward hippie to becoming one of the most admired entrepreneurs of our time.
The film will be based on the best selling biography of Jobs by Walter Isaacson and will be directed by Joshua Michael Sten, whose other directorial credits include Swing Vote (2008).
Jobs is not the only biopic which attempts to chronicle the life of Steve Jobs, Sony Pictures has also been developing untitled biopic on Steve. The rival project still has neither roped in the lead actor nor the screenwriter. Production for 'Jobs' will reportedly begin right away in an effort to beat Sony's own Jobs biopic, which will also be based on the bestselling book by Walter Isaacson.
Kutcher, who replaced Charlie Sheen on the long-running television sitcom Two and a Half Men, is scheduled to shoot the movie during that TV series' production hiatus. Kutcher's big-screen credits include No Strings Attached, What Happens in Vegas and The Butterfly Effect.
