Look Out Ashton Kutcher! Another Steve Jobs Movie in the Works: Which Biopic Will You Watch? (POLL)
While the Two and a Half Men star, 34, has already started shooting the biopic where he takes on the role of the late Steve Jobs, the Oscar-winning writer (The Social Network, West Wing, Moneyball) has announced that he too is making a movie about the Apple mogul.
Sorkin will adapt Walter Isaacson’s biography of Jobs, Sony Pictures announced on Tuesday (as reported by Entertainment Weekly).
So, what’s the difference between the two biopics about the technology innovator?
Kutcher’s indie flick, titled Jobs, is written by Matt Whiteley and follows the late Jobs’ journey “from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple.”
Meanwhile, Sony Pictures co-head Amy Pascal in a statement to EW about their movie, “Steve Jobs’ story is unique: he was one of the most revolutionary and influential men not just of our time but of all time. There is no writer working in Hollywood today who is more capable of capturing such an extraordinary life for the screen than Aaron Sorkin; in his hands, we’re confident that the film will be everything that Jobs himself was: captivating, entertaining, and polarizing.”
Steve Jobs passed away on Oct. 5, 2011 after battling cancer. He was 56.
