First look at Ashton in Steve Jobs biopic

Tuesday December 4, 2012

The first photo of Ashton Kutcher portraying Apple founder Steve Jobs has been unveiled.

The first biopic, entitled jOBS, will close the Sundance Film Festival, it has been announced.

Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, the film will follow the technology mogul's career, from dropping out of college to owning one of the most successful media companies in the world.

And by looking at the photo, it seems Ashton's portrayal of the businessman is frighteningly uncanny.

The film will soon face some stiff competition, however. Sony Pictures is also working on a biopic that will be written by The Social Network screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. Spanning real time, the alternate production will be composed of just three scenes.
