Ashton Kutcher plays the role of Steve Jobs in the new movie jOBS which portrays 30 years of the life of Steve Jobs. The movie might have the unique honor of being the last flick screened for the Sundance Film Festival at the end of this month.
The film primarily focuses on his founding Apple along with his friend Steve Wozniak, his leaving the company he helped to grow, formation of NeXt Computer, the buying of Pixar and finally his return to Apple.
The cast of the movie was first seen near the old house of Steve Jobs situated in Los Altos which witnessed the birth of the first Apple computer. The movie, expected to be a huge hit, is supposed to hit theaters in April.
A couple of actors in the movie seem to have been chosen with true inspiration. John Gad of Book of Mormon fame seems to fit the role of Steve Wozniak perfectly. Matthew Modine playing John Sculley, Ahna O'Reilly playing Chris-Ann Brennan (Jobs' ex-girlfriend) and J K Simmons as Arthur Rock, the venture capitalist, are a few others who seem to just mould into the characters.
Supposedly, there is going to be a second movie based on the later years in the life of Steve Jobs. The second movie is being written by Aaron Sorkin, the creator of ‘The West wing'. The outline of the script seems not to feature iPad or iPhone.
The actor portraying Jobs in the second movie has also not been announced. Both the movies will be apt tribute to Jobs but techies would surely miss seeing Apple's most popular products, the iPad and iPhone in the movies.
