Ashton Kutcher will star in a Steve Jobs movie and will play as the late Apple co-founder, which will be from Job’s early ‘hippie’ days in California until he became a technology business icon.

According to a report at Variety.com on Sunday, April 1, 2012, the Steve Jobs movie simply titled “Jobs” is an independent film based on a script by Matt Whiteley and directed by Joshua Michael Stern, produced by Five Star Institute CEO Mark Hulme.
“We discussed holding it until Monday for fear of readers dismissing it as a joke, but felt it was too big a scoop to risk losing. It’s TRUE!” Jeff Sneider, who wrote the story, tweeted, noting that the report is not an April Fools’ Day joke.
“From what I’ve heard, ‘Jobs‘ will follow Steve from co-founding Apple & getting forced out to when he comes back. Not later years.” Sneider (@TheInSneider) tweeted later; and made a follow-up tweet with a link to a similar report at The Hollywood Reporter.
Kutcher, 34, who replaced Charlie Sheen on CBS sitcom “Two and a Half Men”, gained fame via Fox‘ comedy series “That 70′s Show” and has starred in various films including “New Year’s Eve,” “No Strings Attached” and “Valentine’s Day.”
As noted on The Hollywood Reporter, Ashton Kutcher has a great resemblance with Mr. Jobs when he was still young, with the actor also known to be a former husband of Demi Moore and became the first Twitter user to have more than 1 million followers back in 2009.
As of this writing, there is still no formal announcement from its producers and Kutcher‘s rep, although another Steve Jobs biopic is currently being developed by Sony Pictures Studios, which will be based on the 2011 best-selling biography book by Walter Isaacson.
