Ashton Kutcher's Steve Jobs movie due by end of year, starts shooting next month

Mark Hulme, the producer of the upcoming Steve Jobs movie starring Ashton Kutcher, recently sat down to an interview detailing thoughts and plans about the high-profile flick. The biggest question for me is how a small, independent, new filmmaker managed to wrangle such a good match for a young Steve Jobs as Kutcher. Hulme replied:

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.

Filming starts next month, and there are still many key roles that have yet to be filled, but Hulme promises that the movie will be "an accurate and inspirational portrayal of [Jobs'] fascinating life and the huge impact he had on the world". Jobs: Get Inspired (the movie's working title) won't be without competition. Besides there already being an early-days biopic about Steve Jobs called Pirates of Silicon Valley released in 1999, Sony intends to turn the official biography by Walter Isaacson into a movie too. Unfortunately for Sony, their version will be coming out after Get Inspired, which should be available before the end of the year.

Do you guys intend on seeing Jobs: Get Inspired in theaters? Do you think Kutcher will do the role justice, or is he still just Kelso from the 70s show to ?

It'll be interesting to see Ashton act as Steve, and not an idiot... (i.e.: That 70's Show, & Two and a Half Men)

I think he can probably do this project justice. Whether he'll do justice to the apparent truth of who Jobs was, is another matter.
I'd want the quirks, flaws, and shortcomings to be represented as much as the successful, inspiring, and intellectual aspects of who he was. But that'd probably be in the movie based on the Isaacson film.
Many people just want simple, bite-sized, entertaining chunks of information. They want a story. I'm more interested in the reality. Hopefully, most others are, too.

They hired a degenerate to play his role. I feel bad for Steve to have his image presented by a jackass. But thinking about it Steve was a jackass who has never created anything but stolen everything he claimed to have created. He was a genious marketer only.

I was suggested this web site through my cousin. I'm not positive whether or not this publish is written by way of him as nobody else understand such distinct about my difficulty. You're wonderful! Thanks!

hell do a good job, hes an actor, and when your passionate about something you add extra effort, hes gonna knock out the park...
