There have been two Steve Jobs movies floating around Hollywood, a semi-official one that Aaron Sorkin is writing, and another that’s streaked ahead and has already been filmed, with Ashton Kutcher in the lead role.
The news has just been announced that the movie, title jOBS, will premiere at Sundance in January as the closing night film, and with that has come the first official photo from the movie, showing Kutcher as a young Steve Jobs in the early days of Apple. He’s certainly a good match for the technology guru in his younger days.
Here’s the Sundance synopsis: ‘jOBS / U.S.A. (Director: Joshua Michael Stern, Screenwriter: Matt Whiteley) — The true story of one of the greatest entrepreneurs in American history, jOBS chronicles the defining 30 years of Steve Jobs’ life. jOBS is a candid, inspiring and personal portrait of the one who saw things differently. Cast: Ashton Kutcher, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons, Matthew Modine.’
