We at TGD have been following the news on jOBS for a while, practically since it was announced, and reaction to the movie has been middling to mixed at best. The most recent batch of reviews haven’t been especially stellar, and the box office has been dreadful.
Why would you make a film about such an iconic person and treat it like a Lifetime movie of the week and put Ashton Kutcher at the head of the cast? This should have been an earth shattering biography.
Instead, as Deadline tells us so succinctly and beautifully:
The Steve Jobs biopic jOBS is just about in theaters, and while it’s gotten mediocre to decent reviews, the public will ultimately decide whether this retelling of Jobs’s life makes the grade or not. In all likelihood, this won’t be the last biopic of Jobs because Sony secured the rights to his life story right after he passed away, with Aaron Sorkin (A Few Good Men) writing the screenplay. (No one has been selected to direct or star in the film as of yet.)
When Steve Jobs passed away, Sony got the rights to his life, and Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, A Few Good Men) has written the screenplay. This version has yet to be made, but a smaller, less expensive version of Jobs’s life, jOBS, has already been made with Ashton Kutcher in the lead, and is due for release on August 16.

As you've probably seen by now, there's reports everywhere right now about the independent biopic of Steve Jobs, entitled JOBS, complete with pictures of Ashton Kutcher made up like the late Apple visionary.
It seems the reports about Ashton Kutcher portraying Steve Jobs in the biographical film of the Apple co-founders life are true.
Earlier this month, we reported that Ashton Kutcher had landed the lead role in an independent film about the life and times of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.
Okay, okay, so we know the casting of Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs is indeed true, as much as it sounds like a joke, but quite a few movie geek April Fools jokes did go around this past week.
