The working title for the independent Steve Jobs film featuring Ashton Kutcher is 'Jobs: Get Inspired'.

The film's producer Mark Hulme of Five Star Institute spoke to Neowin about the project.

Joshua Michael Stern is known for directing the comedy Swing Vote. Why was he picked to direct Jobs?
We wanted a director who could not only buy into and execute our vision for the film but could also work within our framework as an independent film company. After several meetings with Josh we were confident we had found both a brilliant and collaborative director. As an experienced writer and director Josh has a masterful understanding of the process of film making.

Ashton Kutcher is, obviously, a huge Hollywood actor and he must have his pick of projects to choose from. First, why do you think he is your choice for playing Steve Jobs?
Since our film covers the early years of Apple, when Jobs was in his 20's, we needed an actor who could carry not only the youthfulness of Jobs at the time but also the psychological complexity. Because of that, and Ashton's physical similarities to Jobs, he's perfect for our film.

Second, was it hard to get him to agree to play the role in a relatively small independent film about Jobs' life?
When Ashton read the script he was immediately attracted to the project. He is a Steve Jobs and Apple fan, and is technologically savvy, as well, so he recognized the historical importance of Steve Jobs and the potential of the project. He is very excited to have the role.

The movie is scheduled for release during the fourth quarter of this year. You can read the entire interview with Neowin at the link below...

The title is certainly ironic, since if the screenwriters has any inspiration they would have come up with a more creative title.

Right actor wrong title. It should be "One More Thing".

Surely it should be Jobs: Stay Foolish. No idea what this might be like, but I never noticed how uncannily like Jobs he looks, crazy.
