Remember the Steve Jobs movie that everyone was talking about a while back? There was actually two different movies, but I’m talking about the one with Ashton Kutcher playing Jobs. The indie new film is finally nearing its release at the Sundance Film Festival and the first official press photo has hit the Web.
Vanity Fair magazine reports:
Courtesy of the Sundance Film Festival, which, just moments ago, announced that jOBS—weird capitalization choice theirs, not ours—would premiere at this year’s festival, the photo shows the Two and a Half Men lead in a cubicle. Outfitted in a button-down shirt, jeans, and a goatee—Kutcher’s Jobs, who leans against a desk in front of a poster bearing the IBM slogan THINK—bears an eerie resemblance to a vintage photo of an actual Steve Jobs floating around on the Internet. That vintage photo also features Steve Jobs’s Jobs in a button-down shirt, jeans, and a goatee, leaning against a desk in front of a poster bearing the IBM slogan THINK.
Wow. That photo does look a lot like a different photo of Steve Jobs. I highly recommend clicking this link to see the resemblance. It’s pretty creepy. Aside from that, the Sundance Film Festival will be held on January 17th through 27th and jOBS (the name of the movie) will make its debut.
Sundance‘s description of the new movie:
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. CLOSING NIGHT FILM
I’m very interested to see what Ashton does with this role.
