I am very curious to see Ashton as Steve Jobs in the film titled jOBS. The Joshua Michael Stern-directed biopic will close the Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 27. But we have to wait until April to see Ashton in the big screen, appearing alongside J.K. Simmons, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, and Matthew Modine.
I can’t deny that the resemblance is satisfactory. Ashton’s casting has been approved by Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder, who told TMZ that Kutcher will “put a lot into it”.
There is another film though, jOBS’ rival, which is based on the Walter Isaacson biography, is being backed by Sony Pictures and has not yet been given a title or relase date. The screenplay has been written by Aaron Sorkin, who won an Oscar for his work on The Social Network in 2011.
