If you are a fan of both Ashton Kutcher and Apple, you are in for a real treat. Kutcher is set to play Steve Jobs in the upcoming movie that will chronicle the life of the Apple entrepreneur. Jobs, who passed away in October of 2011 due to cancer related illness, was truly one of the more remarkable entrepreneurs that the world has seen. His company focused on creating technology that set the boundary for competitors.
If you think that it is not possible for Ashton Kutcher to be serious and play such a role, consider some of his works that differ from his normal comedy hits. He has proven that he is able to turn serious and dark without missing a beat in both “Spread” by David Mackenzie and “Bobby” the historical drama created by Emilio Estevez. There is no doubting that Kutcher will not only succeed, but will very likely thrive in the role.
Kutcher will join other unlikely prospects that have played significant roles such as Justin Timberlake in the role of Sean Parker – think Napster – and Leonardo DiCaprio in the role of Howard Hughes – a millionaire with obsessive compulsive tendencies. Timberlake and DiCaprio were able to prove critics wrong by shrugging off their boyish charms in favor of more serious acting skills.
The film is being both financed and produced by Mark Hulme from Five Star Institute. The memoir is set to begin production in May, when Ashton will be on break from filming his television comedy – Two and a Half Men. The distribution rights will be held by CAA, the representative of Kutcher.
While the movie is sure to be a hit, Sony Pictures is jumping on the bandwagon as well, producing their own film about Steve Jobs that will be based on Walter Isaacson’s best selling book.
