NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES (AUGUST 24, 2011) (HOLLYWOODTV) - Ashton Kutcher is attached to star as Steve Jobs in "Jobs," an independent biopic being produced and financed by Mark Hulme. Joshua Michael Stern is set to begin principal photography in May while Kutcher is on hiatus from CBS sitcom "Two and a Half Men." Stern will direct "Jobs" from a script by Matt Whiteley. The film will chronicle Jobs' meteoric rise from Northern California hippie to co-founder of Apple. It's a high profile assignment for Kutcher, and "Jobs" looks to get off the ground before Sony Pictures pulls together its own Steve Jobs biopic. Last fall, Sony acquired the film rights to Walter Isaacson's authorized biography of Jobs that was published within weeks of Jobs' death on October 05, 2011.
