Ashton Kutcher is set to play Steve Jobs in the upcoming indie film entitled 'Jobs' which is written by Matt Whiteley and will be directed by Michael Stern, according to Variety.

The film will chronicle Steve Jobs from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple, where he became one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of our time. Five Star Institute's Mark Hulme is financing and will produce the pic, which is skedded to start production in May while Kutcher is on hiatus from his hit CBS series.

Sony is also producing a film based on the Walter Isaacson biography of Steve Jobs. Last November, Aaron Sorkin was rumored to be 'strongly considering' writing the Steve Jobs movie for Sony. No word on whether that title has gone into production yet.

You know what: I dearly miss it: the real Steve, walking on stage of a real Apple event, opening his bottle of water and switching on his reality distortion field. OMG how do I miss it!

I suspect they only picked Ashton because he's the only one who still looks like he's living in the 70s, thus he seems to 'look the part'. Really, long hair and a pony tail? I guess it works for a show about kids in the 70s, but you've got to move on from your first big role, man.

Good luck... Whosoever it is but please do justice to the role.

Just this one rumor would prevent me from EVER watching the movie, since it shows they're more concerned with the 'look' of the actor than they are in making a decent film about a historic innovator who changed much of the modern world. I've never liked Ashton Kutcher, in case you couldn't tell, and I've never seen any evidence that he can act, either.

Noah Wyle would have been a MUCH better choice, good luck making Ashton Kutcher look and act like Jobs.
