The Two and a Half Men star is set to play the co-founder of Apple in an upcoming biopic of his life, it is set to be directed by Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote) with a script from Matt Whiteley reports Variety.
Ashton Kutcher is known for starring in romantic comedies like 2011’s New Year’s Eve and No Strings Attached. Although he bares a small resemblance to a young Steve Jobs it will be an interesting turn in his career which will be closely watched by his fans and Apple fans alike.
The pressure has been put on as the biopic is rumoured to be competing with another Steve Jobs film from Sony. After Kutcher famously took over the lead role in Two and a Half Men from the wayward actor Charlie Sheen to great criticism along with the end of his marriage, the stakes are high.
