The “Two and a Half Men” star Ashton Kutcher is set to play Steve Jobs in a new indie film, chronicling the earlier years of the Apple co-founder. The new film is set to start filming in May, when Kutcher takes a break from filming “Two and a Half Men.” It looks like the former “Punk’d” host might have to grow out his hair and grow a beard in the mean time, too.
Variety reports that the film is set to be financed and produced by Five Star Institute’s Mark Hulme, while Matt Whiteley will write the script for the film. Since it’s the early years of Steve Jobs when he was co-founding Apple, we assume the other co-founders Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne will be portrayed too. It will be interesting to see which actors are chosen.
Released in 1999, the film “Pirates of Silicon Valley” also portrayed the founding of Apple and chronicled the Cupertino-based company’s competition with Microsoft.
Despite today being April Fools day, we think this is legitimate.
