Ashton Kutcher and Steve Jobs

Variety’s Jeff Sneider swears this story is not an April Fool’s joke. If it is, he’s gone quite far to make it happen. For one, Variety isn’t exactly the type of publication one would call “playful,” nor is The Hollywood Reporter, who also confirmed the following story. As it stands, Ashton Kutcher has been cast to play a young Steve Jobs in the indie film Jobs, which Swing Vote helmer Joshua Michael Stern will direct from a script by Matt Whiteley. The film is said to follow the years between Steve Jobs’ founding of Apple to his exile from the company and his return, which ultimately spawned the current resurgence that has led Apple to become the most valuable company on the face of the planet. It’s an interesting bit of casting, as Kutcher certainly resembles a young Steve Jobs, but its unknown yet whether or not he can actually become Mr. Jobs. Time will tell, we suppose.

It’s worth noting also that Sony Pictures is developing its own Steve Jobs biopic, based on the bestselling book by Walter Isaacson. As it turns out, Steve Jobs is about to be the new Snow White.
