Ashton Kutcher will soon be filming for a new independent film titled “Jobs” that documents the life of the late Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs. Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, the celebrity prankster starts with the production as early as May, even before another biopic type based on Walter Isaacson‘s hit biography that’s being prepared by Sony Pictures starts filming.

According to the Hollywood Reporter:

“Wasting no time, Joshua Michael Stern is set to begin principal photography in May while Kutcher is on hiatus from CBS sitcom “Two and a Half Men.” Kutcher is a natural to play Jobs; the resemblance between the two is unmistakable.”

To be honest, we never quite saw Ashton to be a shoo-in for the role of the rather serious modern day inventor, although he does look like the younger version of Jobs. With no one else is vying for the part, it’s sure to happen now with Ashton for the lead.

The article added:

Stern (“Swing Vote”) 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.”

Do you think Ashton is fit for the role of Steve Jobs?
