Here’s a quick report from Variety:
The film will chronicle Steve Jobs from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple, where he became one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of our time.
Five Star Institute’s Mark Hulme is financing and will produce the pic, which is skedded to start production in May while Kutcher is on hiatus from his hit CBS series.
CAA, which reps both Kutcher and Stern, will represent the pic’s domestic distribution rights.
Ashton Kutcher, the man who hasn't made a good movie, ever (http://t.co/el06WtMZ) is to play Steve Jobs in the upcoming biopic.
