Steve Jobs (on the left) and Ashton Kutcher (on the right)
While this type of news isn’t really BestTechInfo’s forte, it’s certainly huge in both the technology and entertainment industries. With that said, The Daily had an interesting conversation and short interview with the producer behind the upcoming Steve Jobs film: Five Star Institute’s Mark Hulme.
Hulme feels that Kutcher is “pouring himself” into the role of Steve Jobs and “believes the role was meant for him”:
“He is already meeting with folks that knew Steve Jobs. He’s working with professionals to get inside the voice. He’s letting his hair grow out. I understand he’s canceled all meetings and actually canceled all other projects,”…
While the news of Kutcher playing Jobs in the upcoming film provoked mixed reactions, Hulme believes that Kutcher can pull it off thanks to his abilities and personal interest in the role.
Additionally, Steve Wozniak (Apple Inc.’s co-founder) is on-board with Kutcher as the lead role and feels that “he’ll put a lot into it”:
The fear that many might have is that Ashton was selected because he’s ‘hot’ right now. But I feel that his selection was done in the most professional manner. And I’m glad that he’s onboard. I think he’ll put a lot into it and that he cares about this particular subject.
The new Steve Jobs movie is scheduled to start filming next month and should be on track to debut on the big screen this Thanksgiving. Stay tuned for more news related to Steve Jobs and the upcoming movie that will be dedicated to him.
